Jill Geisler
Jill Geisler is an internationally recognized expert in leadership and management.
She holds the Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity at Loyola University Chicago.
Her book "Work Happy: What Great Bosses Know," has been published in English, Portuguese and Korean, with Russian and Chinese versions pending. Jill's popular "What Great Bosses Know" podcasts on iTunes U have enjoyed over 13 million downloads to date. She writes a monthly column on newsroom leadership for The Columbia Journalism Review and is a featured presenter at journalism conferences.
Jill's first career was in broadcast journalism as a reporter, producer and anchor. At the age of 27, she became one of the first women TV news directors in the United States. During her leadership, which spanned two decades, her award-winning newsroom was noted for its enterprise reporting and dedication to ethical decision-making.
In 1998, she joined the faculty of The Poynter Institute, where she guided its programs for leaders and managers for 16 years. She is known as a master teacher who makes theory come alive by connecting it to real-life leadership challenges and by infusing her interactive sessions with humor and humanity.
In 2015, Jill was invited by Loyola's School of Communications to serve as the inaugural Plante Chair, a position she calls "a dream job" that enables her to teach students as well as professionals and engage in extensive outreach on behalf of the University.
She is also the principal of Jill Geisler Leadership, LLC, through which she provides leadership and management coaching and consultation to leaders in fields ranging from medicine to technology to education.
Jill has been inducted into several journalism halls of fame, including the prestigious Silver Circle of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. She was given the "Distinguished Service to Journalism" award by her undergraduate alma mater, the University of Wisconsin. She holds a Bachelors degree in journalism and a Masters in leadership studies.
As her guiding philosophy, Jill believes: "The most important thing leaders do is help others succeed."
