“Africa is such an exciting continent to work in, it's a very young continent with lots of growth opportunities and such a blessing to be able to work in this business.”
In this episode of Impact Leaders, Jonathan Escobar sits down with Jeni Hall, VP Beauty & Personal Care Africa at Unilever Africa. Jeni has worked with Unilever since 1989 and has held several positions of high-responsibility in South Africa, Ghana, Russia and Singapore. Among others she was leading Unilever´s Marketing Transformation “Connected for Growth” across Africa.
Jeni shares her experiences of 33 year being a leader in one of the biggest fast moving consumer goods companies in the world and implementing ActioGlobal’s PEAK Way of Working to drive results, work with cross-functional teams, break silos, implement ActioGlobal´s OKR Operational System as well as Servant Leadership - all this on a continent like Africa with its many different cultures.
“We don´t know what´s around that next corner, but if you go to Leadership Team, and your team who are in the market stay to deliver the results partnering with you to bring their very best to the business, that is why I would do this journey again and again and again because you're actually creating a completely different way and a different eco-system of performance.”
“Radical Candor is probably the most underestimated opportunity in business.”
“Why would you want to embark on this journey? We can´t afford to have teams who are not showing up and showing up with all the creativity and all the curiosity. And you can create an environment where you know that the teams are showing up and you´re getting the best out of them. Then I think it´s the best opportunity for any business to create a future -proof strategy”.
