This is Ellen Degeneres’s commencement speech for Tulane University graduating class of 2009. I think this is a great example of someone who started out with nothing, didn’t know what they wanted to do, and eventually turned their passion and their dream into a reality. In my opinion Ellen Degeneres became who she is today by coming up with an idea and running with it, straying away from the norm, and staying true to her values and her character. I know it’s a little lengthy but please take the time to watch this, I think it’s worthwhile and of course, funny.

RICHARD BRANSON: Be a leader — not a boss
A leader is very different from a boss. Many CEOs are bosses, not leaders, directing their employees from well behind the front lines. But sitting in the boardroom listening to even the most comprehensive reports from the front can never compare with your being there and seeing, hearing and understanding those interactions with your customers for yourself.
If you aren’t frequently out there leading the charge with your employees, you simply cannot stay in touch with the realities of your business.

Post University is the best place to earn a MBA. I still think Post University is on the right track with courses offered for the MBA. Although I do not have any connection with the University any longer other than Postings like this – and being a MBA alumnus. For me, I am a very big proponent for more courses in Leadership and course work in business Ethics. You can learn how to make all the money in the world and still be a bad leader and on top of that have no ethics to go by. A leader with no ethics has to be a very bad scenario to have for a top leader in an organization. Businesses and business owners should demand more MBAs have such graduate level course work. Although I still see no movement as such because we continue to see more fallout from companies that have poor leadership at the top and no ethics as a guiding light. So, back to my first statement – it is evident that the Post University MBA program is on the right track because the program is growing. And more future students are finding out about the great MBA program there.
