The episode showed that Picard totally trusts Geordi and thus provided a leadership lesson.
He had also been serving with Geordi for anywhere from thirteen to fifteen months at that point and had appointed him Chief Engineer. A totally different situation than the one Jellico was in.

I'm sure Picard was a terrible commanding officer for all time because of this exchange with his new first officer...

PICARD: Come.
RIKER: Not exactly a run of the mill happening, Captain.
PICARD: It seems we're alive only because we have been placed on probation. A very serious kind of probation. (answers comm.) Go.
DATA [OC]: The saucer module is now entering orbit with us, sir.
PICARD: Acknowledged. Commander Riker will conduct a manual docking. Picard out.
RIKER: Sir?
PICARD: You've reported in, haven't you? You are qualified?
RIKER: Yes, sir.
PICARD: Then I mean now, Commander.
