I joined an amazing group of women one recent weekend in Washington to hear from the talented Jill Geisler about honing leadership skills. It was the second in what I hope will be a longer series of JAWS leadership trainings for which Jill has generously given her time.
One thing that struck me about the participants was that most of them, like myself, weren’t freshly minted college graduates. Most were seasoned, midcareer professionals looking to up our game and our careers through newsroom leadership. Jill’s message was one of empowerment, showing us not just how to be journalism leaders but also how to frame the experience many of us already have to show our aptitude for management or for leading from positions we’re already in.
