This week we welcome Marilyn Gist; she is the author of The Extraordinary Power of Leader Humility. Marilyn helps others become the leader everyone admires by creating thriving organizations and great results.
She asks us to Imagine a world in which all leaders feel and display a deep regard for others’ dignity. This is what humility means, and it helps leaders resolve conflict, increase engagement, and optimize performance. Marilyn speaks and consults widely, based on experience as a scholar, teacher, trainer, and senior leader. Formerly Associate Dean, Professor of Management, and Executive Director of the Center for Leadership Formation at Seattle University, she began her academic career at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She later joined the University of Washington, where she held the Boeing Endowed Professorship of Business.
Marilyn earned her BA from Howard University and her MBA and Ph.D. from the Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park. She is a member of the Academy of Management, American Psychological Association, and the International Women’s Forum.
