How one leader knows when to speak out.. Or keep mum.
During my first year as president of Grinnell College, I needed guidance. I was an outsider to the world of elite liberal-arts college presidents in many ways, including that I came from the fields of medicine and science policy, and that my academic experience had been entirely in large, research-intensive organizations. As soon as it was available, I read Lessons Learned: Reflections of a University President, by a former president of Princeton University and the Mellon Foundation, William G. Bowen.
