Jeroen van der Veer on Leadership and Much More

McKinsey’s have produced a great video interview with the recently retired CEO of Royal Dutch Shell.  Not only is the content excellent, but their presentation is an object lesson in how you break up a 20 minute interview into sections that are all accessible instantly, and play out the sections with key quotes on the screen, and if that is not enough there is a transcript as well.

Thoughtful, articulate stuff. Sections are: future of oil, the downturn, leadership, business in society, the big picture, and management lessons.

What did I learn:  “some of the things I do now, I do not for my successor, but my successor’s successor”.  The importance of a long term perspective whilst dealing with the short term.
