An Interview with Ed Bastian

Recently, I had the privilege of interviewing the president of Delta Airlines, Ed Bastian. Ed is a warm and intelligent leader who possesses both a high IQ and high EQ. Prior to becoming president he served as Vice President of Finance and Controller of Delta Airlines, Inc. For a “numbers” guy, Ed demonstrates a keen awareness of the priority of relationships, especially since Delta acquired Northwest Airlines. Bringing those two teams together has been the biggest challenge of his life. Hear him talk about it in this video… and see if there might be some relevant tips for your own leadership.
