Listen and Lead: Advice from Leigh Ann Pusey

There’s one piece of fatherly wisdom Leigh Ann Pusey, Lilly’s senior vice president for Corporate Affairs and Communications, will always remember: “Stop talking, and listen.”

“It’s very simple,” she says, “but it’s a real reminder that the best part of being on a team, and ultimately trying to help lead a team, is to really make sure you understand – understand the mission, understand the skills and expertise of the people around you.” She’s taken that advice to heart throughout her years in the public policy world and uses at Lilly her keen knowledge of the ins and outs of the policy landscape as well.
