Leading and Adapting to Change with Lorenzo Simonelli, CEO of Baker Hughes (From 2022 archive)

Organizations are notoriously slow to change. And when they try, they often fail and go back to the same old.

Because when change fails, it hurts.

Last year, I interviewed Lorenzo Simonelli – Chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes, an energy technology company – on The World Class Leaders Show and this episode has been the most listened one since I created the show.

For this reason, I think it’s a great idea to bring it to life again for those who haven’t listened to the great conversation we had together.

We discussed the exciting energy transition happening in the industry and Lorenzo’s perspective on navigating this change as a leader. Lorenzo stressed the need to pivot quickly, fail fast, and learn in order to adapt to constant change.

He shared insights on building diverse teams, focusing on culture, effective communication, and empowering others. Lorenzo also advised aspiring leaders on self-awareness, taking feedback, and managing ambiguity.
