Danielle Thompson ’97, Rockefeller Center Assistant Director, presented this special session of MLDP. The presentation opened with a broader look at the benefits the Rockefeller Center has afforded students pursuing public policy internships. Two students with former Rockefeller-funded internships presented briefly then answered questions.
The participants present had various levels of experience with LinkedIn – some people were signing up for the first time, and others were curious about how to better implement their LinkedIn accounts. One of the key features Ms. Thompson noted was that LinkedIn is an increasingly popular vehicle for showcasing one’s experience; a LinkedIn page has now become the Rockefeller Center’s preferred resume format.

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

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.
