As I continue to teach and work with many talented university students in leadership and in particular, an affiliative model of leadership based on having an outward focus and commitment to ‘take care of your partner’ in all leadership and development work, I remember Jackie. She was a master at this. She was powerful in her ability to instill confidence and initiative in others, in part through role modelling but also through her courage, professionalism, and ability to set and meet challenging goals for herself (so that others could too).
