Stanley O'Neal February 24, 2004

What leadership qualities does it take to turn around a Fortune 500 company—how much is perspiration, and how much is inspiration?  Since taking the helm as Chief Executive Officer at Merrill Lynch, E. Stanley O’Neal has accomplished this feat by enforcing strict fiscal and operating discipline within the financial services giant. Staying that course has meant making some difficult decisions, but under O’Neal’s watchful eye, the tough measures have paid off, helping the company’s stock almost double in value last year. A special guest of University Lectures, O’Neal comes to Syracuse to talk about his management style and the challenges of leadership as a corporate CEO.
