In this episode of The Aligned Leader, I interview Ursula Soritsch-Renier, CIO at Sulzer, on how she’s leading such a large organization and why people always need to come first.

What does “It’s all about the people” mean in a business context in terms of performance and results?

What’s the “bottom line” of diversity in business and why is it crucial to look at diversity beyond the male and female perspective?

What does it mean to lead authentically and empower others in an organization to perform at their highest?

This and more in our conversation with Ursula. Watch the full video below.
