Tuck School of Business Prof. Betsy Winslow '83 Leads 1st Session of Rocky Leadership Fellows

Article Type 

Betsy Winslow '83 of the Tuck School of Business kicked off the first Rockefeller Leadership Fellows (RLF) session of 2011-2012 with  an interactive lecture on Leadership, Personal Development, and the Feedback Cycle.  The session began with the Fellows sharing a time when they exercised leadership: paying mind to who their followers were, what type of leadership they were using, how well it went, and what they would have done differently. This was followed  by a review of leadership theory, which encompassed directly discussing various  theories and different leadership types. After the review, Winslow then discussed  ways to build the framework for accessing leaders, the importance of situational  management, ways to give and receive feedback, and best practices for providing feedback.

Through role-playing exercises, cold-calling, and direct lecture, Winslow successfully  conveyed to the Fellows the importance of personal excellence, developing  a library of personal yet flexible leadership styles, managing work relationships, and most importantly, how critical the feedback cycle is to both professional and personal success.
