Learning to lead

“When you are a person of influence, people look to you for cues and clues. We all know people who make the workplace better and brighter just by showing up. They combine realism and pragmatism with hope and a relentlessly positive outlook. And we want to be a part of that person’s team.” – Jill Geisler

In a world full of leadership experts, my money is on Jill Geisler, who heads the leadership and management programs at The Poynter Institute. Geisler pens a regular column for Poynter, and her book, “Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know,” is a must read.

Check out her words of wisdom delivered in a recent commencement address.
