Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

True leadership is not about showing strength, but embracing vulnerability.

George Oliver, Chairman and CEO of Johnson Controls, believes that being a good leader is all about being genuine and open.

It's important to treat everyone fairly and share personal stories to connect with the team. 

George recalls about the times he felt unsure, especially during COVID. But he feels that being honest and admitting when you don't know something is a strength, not a weakness. 

Real leadership is about being responsible, truthful, and understanding towards others. 

For George, a great leader is one who listens, is honest about their feelings, and always tries to do right by their team.

George Oliver leads a company with over 100,000 employees. 

He's one of the 100+ CEOs I interviewed for my new book, Leading With Vulnerability: https://www.amazon.com/Leading-Vulnerability-Superpower-Transform-Organization/dp/1119895243/
