Ridgefield, CT, January 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- In this interview with Anne Mulcahy, perhaps her final as a Xerox executive, Mulcahy provides insights to CEO Show host Robert Reiss about turning Xerox around and the most important challenges of that endeavor. Mulcahy talks specifically about listening to the customers and the employees, identifying the “root causes” of the problem, and making sure there was discipline in implementing the business plan.
When Reiss started to speak about the stepwise process for addressing the turn around at Xerox, Mulcahy quickly explained that the implementation did not have the luxury of being sequential. It had to be simultaneous. In her words, “If you find yourself there, moving very quickly, being bold, and being decisive is incredibly important ….” She also provides her thoughts on running a business, one of the most important of which is to create ‘followership’, by communicating clearly and being credible.
Shifting the subject to her new position as Chairman of Save the Children, Mulcahy tells Reiss how she regards this move as an opportunity to “give something back.” The mission’s objective is to address the compelling problem of survival of newborns and children in the Third World. Mulcahy experienced this directly when she recently visited Haiti and Guatemala, accompanied by a health care worker of the genre who do so much for those who suffer. The Save the Children’s advertising campaign seeks to raise financial aid for badly needed medication, nutritional information, and medical support to mothers who don’t have access to hospitals. Its proceeds will help provide aid for the more than 24,000 newborns and children that die each day, largely due to preventable diseases.
