Just because you’re not the boss doesn’t mean you can’t be a leader now and develop your leadership skills. Hear from Business Leadership Coach John Keyser (C’59) as he shares his top tips on "leading from the middle," and how you can begin to influence others to do good work and to do the right thing. We will discuss key principles of highly effective leadership, including the importance of our soft skills. Participants will leave with next steps that they can immediately implement to become a leader in their workplace and community.

John Keyser (C’59) currently works with executives who recognize the need and have a passion for striving for continuous improvement, their own and their company’s. In his coaching practice, he works with executives from CEOs to up-and-comers, helping them become even better at what they do and in their leadership of others—becoming their best selves! John has had a long career as a senior executive with Johnson & Higgins, then after a merger, with Marsh & McLennan. His principal responsibilities and his passions were superior client service, understanding specifically what his clients needed and wanted all around the world and delivering to that standard, as well as training and developing his companies’ people so they could maximize their success. He is a believer in Tom Peters’ principle, pay close attention to and take care of your people and they will pay attention to and take good care of your clients. He subsequently joined non-profit organizations, first as executive director of Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and then as head of development for the Georgetown University Medical Center. John is a Georgetown University liberal arts graduate and also a graduate of the Georgetown Leadership Coaching Program, which is accredited by the International Coaching Federation.
