Anne Curzan | Let Them Lead Episode 7

Anne Curzan, the granddaughter of legendary Michigan State University president John Hannah, attended Yale, where she participated in some-two dozen intramural sports. After earning her Ph.D. in English language and Literature at the University of Michigan, she served on the faculty for 17 years before becoming dean of the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) in September of 2019. In those roles she has learned a lot about the unfairly maligned Millennials and Generation Z, and is eager to defend their ambition, work ethic, and vision. Two take-aways from this podcast include: today’s young people are mission-driven; when faced with a crisis like Covid, re-boot, re-imagine what you can be, and “recombobulate”; and good ideas come from everyone, so the leader's job is to elevate them.
