Exploring leader character with Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland

Managing the portfolios of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance means Chrystia Freeland is no stranger to leading under pressure.The public and the media parse her every word, especially as her government responds to the greatest health and economic crisis seen in generations. Presented by Ivey’s Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership, Dean Sharon Hodgson sat down with the Honourable Chrystia Freeland for an exclusive and engaging virtual fireside chat focused on leadership and leader character amid these extraordinary times. 

With COVID-19 as the backdrop, Hodgson and Freeland discussed the guiding principles of leader character, the way one reacts under pressure and responsibility, and the stresses and challenges of constantly being in the public eye.
