Episode 6: Insights into Leadership

Leadership insights for successful leaders

In this podcast we hear from Fred Reid, whose global track record is truly unique. Born in San Francisco and raised in Ethiopia, he has had an incredible career which spans almost 50 years. He has been featured in the Financial Times and San Francisco Business Times, and was named Executive of the Year in 2007.

A serial leader, Fred was Founding CEO at Virgin America, President at Lufthansa and President at Delta Airlines. Fred has also worked alongside Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb for 5 years, with Larry Page, the Co-Founder of Google, as well as Richard Branson.

Listen as he tells Wavelength’s Adrian Simpson of his “accidental career, with no business training”, and how he’s a person with ethics, compassion who cares about people. In this episode of Making Waves, Fred shares his leadership insights, his deep identification with servant leadership, and the importance of all team members making a contribution.
