                  January Hall Leadership Lessons to Feature Jean Reynolds
Columbus, Ohio — Hall Leadership Lessons, a free community leadership forum provided by the Franklin
University Leadership Center, will feature Jean Reynolds, Vice President, Director of the Program Management
Office (PMO), State Auto Insurance Companies, during the January forum. The January session of Hall Leadership
Lessons will be held Thursday, January 10, from 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. in Franklin University’s Ross Auditorium on the
Main Campus, located at 301 E. Rich Street, downtown.

Reynolds will discuss the topic of ―Leadership without Power.‖ In today’s business environment, many project
management leaders are faced with the task of leading employees who are not their direct reports. Reynolds will
discuss how the process is possible by sharing her personal experience in launching, building and giving life to a very
successful project management function while leaving the ownership of the projects with others.

Reynolds began her career at State Auto in 1977 after graduating from Otterbein College. During her tenure at State
Auto, Reynolds has held positions in the Actuarial, Compliance, Pricing/Underwriting, Project Management and
Branch Management offices.

In addition to earning her B.A. in Mathematics from Otterbein College, Reynolds has earned the Chartered Property
& Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation as well as the Competent and Able Toastmaster (CTM, ATM)
designations. A resident of Upper Arlington, Ohio, she is active in the Executive Women’s Golf Association
(EWGA) where she has competed on local, sectional and national levels, and was recently accepted into the 2007-
2008 Leadership Columbus class.

The Franklin University Leadership Center serves as a valuable resource for individuals and organizations
looking to identify and develop leadership talent throughout central Ohio, in the four sectors of business,
community, government and education. The Hall Leadership Lessons present leadership development and
networking opportunities for anyone interested in leadership. The forums are conducted the second Thursday
morning of each month in Ross Auditorium. A continental breakfast is provided. To attend this free session,
