Editorial Leaders 5, Managing and Leading Creative Newsrooms

Effectively editorial leaders socialize and mix with their teams. The days of the aloof newsroom leader distant from his or her staff are over. Leadership is no longer just a lot of people doing exactly what the boss tells them. Effective leaders listen well, and communicate openly and honestly with team members. Today’s rapidly changing media environment requires editors who know how to work across platforms. Hiring, retaining and advancing reporters and other staff of differing backgrounds is an essential challenge.

This workshop address these points and much more, with an aim to producing compelling content that sets you apart from the crowd.
