Oscar Munoz: Learn to Listen

On this podcast episode, the CEO of United Airlines discusses managing mergers and developing emotional intelligence.

Oscar Munoz became CEO of United Airlines in 2015 — and almost immediately suffered a heart attack.

Munoz recovered to oversee the airline’s labor negotiations, continue the work of merging United’s corporate culture with that of Continental Airlines, and guide the company through a period of bad publicity.

During a visit to Stanford Graduate School of Business, he discussed issues ranging from gun control to the airline’s carbon footprint — and why it’s so important to learn to listen.
