About the event:
Herding Cats, or Leading Creative People
There’s a reason that metaphor keeps surfacing. Leading in the creative industries—leading for creativity— requires host of different skills creative leaders probably never learned and traits they may or may not have. Because most creative people are hired for their talent and hard skills, and as was lamented at the ANA conference a few years ago “the average barista gets more training than most creative directors.”
Learn what it takes to take the next leap in a creative career.
Leading for creativity means inspiring talent to do their very best work, building great teams, and corralling bright, entrepreneurial people who don’t want to be led. Learn what it takes to find, grow and retain great creative leaders who are prepared to meet the challenges of a business driven by perpetual change.
