Being a people-focused leader is easier said than done. For Holden’s former HR Director Jamie Getgood, it took him four years, countless sleepless nights and his sanity—almost—to lead with humanity whilst driving Australia’s largest car manufacturing company to the finish line.
But what came out of this crisis was a real game-changer: a bottom-quartile business soaring to new heights in its last few months of operation and a major award that earned him a reputation as one of the country’s most respected leaders.
In the pilot episode of The People Shift podcast, Cybill Juarez puts Jamie Getgood in the spotlight to discuss how the brand came about, what inspired them to launch a podcast and how they rallied leaders from across the world to start a workplace movement.
Jamie also throws it back to his time at Holden — the hallmark of his career — and tells us how this epic transition story marked the beginning of his people-focused leadership journey, which eventually led to the birth of a movement we now proudly call The People Shift.
