#LeadershipTuesdays: Drawing Boundaries for Millennials

"I’ve learned that you get more out of people when they are happy in their jobs and excited about what they do. So I try to line up people and their vision with our vision."

--Deryl McKissack, CEO, McKissack & McKissack 

Every other Tuesday, WOMEN AT LIBERTY provides Leadership Tuesdays, a platform for a variety of voices and resources to develop, encourage and strengthen women leaders. Today's article comes from The New York Times' @nytcorneroffice column written by Adam Bryant and features Deryl McKissack, CEO of McKissack & McKissack.

Deryl McKissack is an engineer and a fifth generation builder. She has led McKissack & McKissack, a prominent architectural, engineering and construction firm based in Washington, DC whose portfolio of work includes the Smithsonian's new Museum of African-American History and Culture on the National Mall and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in Washington, DC, for over 25 years.

In the article she gives insight into how she learned to be successful in the male-dominated construction industry. She also has advice for millennials and anyone who aspires to impress your organization's leaders and be successful.
