Former CEO, Campbell Soup Co.

Doug Conant, former CEO of Campbell Soup company understands that it’s in the moments of saying “just the right thing at just the right time” that leaders can make a positive, constructive impact on others. In The Art of Leadership video, Doug recommends six guiding principles of leadership for sustaining the impact of these genuine “touchpoints” in an enduring way.

The Art of Leadership Program Highlights:

  • The transformative power of a human connection.
  • Guiding others with a “listen, frame, and advance” mindset.
  • Why inspiring trust is critical to enduring leadership success.

Early in his career, after nine years with General Foods, Doug Conant was unexpectedly and summarily laid off from his job. It was devastating, he recalls, yet kind words from an outplacement counselor not only got him through it, but helped shape his approach to leadership success.

In The Art of Leadership video, he explains that to sustain the impact of these touchpoints in an enduring way requires adhering to six guiding principles of leadership that he describes, along with inspiring examples of how this can be done.

  1. First, think about where you want to end up in your career, and plan accordingly.
  2. Be able to make the hard decisions, but be sensitive to soft issues.
  3. Be tough-minded with standards and tender-hearted with people.
  4. Make a personal connection to the agendas of others to form an enduring relationship.
  5. Stay ever alert to what matters most with your strategy, your people, and your actions.
  6. Finally, never stop working at leadership: it’s the most important thing you do.
