In this episode, Kathryn Goldman Schuyler interviews Anne Stevens, who has been the most influential woman in the US auto industry, moving on to become CEO of a UK-based global engineering company, GKN plc. Anne knew W. Edwards Deming personally and was deeply interested in quality before it became ubiquitous in industry. Starting early in life in nursing school, she realized quickly that her interests and skills lay elsewhere, and she shifted into engineering. After some years at Exxon, she moved on to Ford Motor Company, where her lifelong love of cars and racing made her feel at home. She ultimately became COO and EVP for the Americas, after being involved in reorganizing the company for the future. Since then, she has led several engineering companies. She shares her experiences with leading in male-dominated industries—and what’s important to her in life.

In this episode, Kathryn Goldman Schuyler interviews Ed and Peter Schein. For decades, Ed Schein has been a respected global thought leader — for his work developing process consultation, career anchors, and for his application of the notion of culture to organizations. His thinking, consulting, and books have nourished the practice of organization and leadership development consultants around the world. He and Peter now work together in the Organizational Culture and Leadership Institute (OCLI) and co-authored the recent book Humble Leadership (2018).
