My Bottom Line: Harriet Green, Thomas Cook

Harriet Green is the new CEO of travel operator Thomas Cook.

Harriet says a particularly difficult time as a manager is leaving one job and starting another. She says her own experience has required a careful balancing act: on one hand being able to coach the colleagues she is leaving behind to ensure they remain motivated; on the other, arriving in her new post with ideas to push the business forward.

Harriet appeared on The Bottom Line which is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service. Listen again via the podcast or watch it on the BBC News Channel
