Everyone is on their best behavior when interviewing for a job. Portfolios, clothing selections and just about every statement from both the interviewer and the interviewee are carefully curated to perfection. It makes it really tough—on the front end of an interview—for anyone to personally determine the best fit for a creative team. It’s not until six months after the acceptance of an employment offer and numerous projects that the glow of newness wears off and the façade of perfection begins to crumble, revealing the naked truth—you’re working with a saboteur or a savior.
In this one-hour follow-up webinar to “Supercharge Your In-house Team,” Creative Director and HOW magazine contributor Ed Roberts will examine in more detail the effects collaborating with saboteurs and saviors have on creative team dynamics. He’ll delve deeper into the mastery of effective communication and conflict resolution skills needed to encourage saviors and shut down saboteurs. At the end of this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn how to inject more harmony and positive collaboration into your creative team.
