What would be a nice, thoughtful gift of appreciation for my social work supervisor?

The end of my graduate school internship is approaching and I'd like to give my wonderful supervisor a token of appreciation for all she's done and taught me. We've had a pretty strictly professional relationship (an excellent one, at that) and I have minimal knowledge of her personal interests. She's in her mid-30s, and is a clinical social worker. I'd like to get her something thoughtful, something she can use. Chocolates, flowers, and gift certificates are not really what I'm looking for. At the same time, I wouldn't want to give her something too personal. Oh, and I'd like to spend no more than $50. (I am a grad student, after all.) I know you guys will have some good ideas. Thanks in advance!

Natural leadership

I've noticed that some people have what I'm going to call "natural leadership"--that is, even if they're put into a situation where everyone is formally equal, they're the ones everyone looks to. I've been in countless such situations, and there's almost always been one person who was the one everyone else said to check with. I want to be that guy. What do I need to do to be that guy?
