Marketing Leader Provides Inspiring Advice

Last week, I had the opportunity to sit in on an insightful leadership talk with Shelly Lazarus — Chairman Emeritus of the international advertising, marketing and public relations agency Ogilvy & Mather. It was the first event in Fuqua’s Distinguished Speaker Series for the academic year, and Geneen Auditorium was packed with students, faculty, and staff. We all listened intently to the leadership talk between Shelly Lazarus and Dean Bill Boulding.

I wanted to take the opportunity to share a few takeaways from Shelly Lazarus that struck me:

Overall, it was a great opportunity to hear from such a successful and dynamic female leader. She shared very personal and tangible insights that gave me a lot to think about as I am in the midst of my second year, debating where I should take my career!

    Great post Jackie!
    I agree that you accomplish a lot more as a leader by simply asking questions rather than commanding people to complete certain tasks. If you show you care and are inquisitive, people are more likely to do what you ask of them.
