Better Than Before with the Amazing Michal Grayevsky
November 8, 2018•26 min
Jane’s guest today, Michal Grayevsky, is one of the world’s most respected and influential women. As a business leader, communications strategist, and former investigative reporter, she is both a powerful and impressive force at the intersection of politics, business, diplomacy and media. In her former role as a journalist for the most widely-read newspaper in Israel, her fearless exposés uncovered sweeping public corruption and spurred major political and human rights reforms. Indeed, she was the first journalist in Israel to reveal sexual harassment by men in positions of power. Currently, as a senior adviser to Ronald S. Lauder, she provides guidance on his business interests and media relationships and also serves as President of JCS International (JCSI), a global media company. Extremely active philanthropically, she sits on the Board of Directors of the UN Women for Peace Association and the International Academy of Arts and Sciences, to name but two. On the show today, Michal and Jane will discuss how growing up in Israel made her especially resilient, helping her grapple with such global issues as Middle East peace while facing the challenges as an executive, a woman a devoted mother of two. Michal will also share her thoughts on the #MeToo movement and where she sees it heading. On a more personal note, she will reveal insights from the highly effective program she created for managing work for interns entitled, “The Ten Commandments of Management,” and how she maintains her beauty, elegance and enviable sense of style through it all.
