I love that. I run our storytellers project and write thank you notes to volunteers and team members after shows. Here’s a lesson: Give them away but one day they will sit on your desk for weeks because of coronavirus, thanking no one.

I love the idea of the hand-written notes right now. I do this at the end of the year for my team as a culmination thank you. But I didn't even think to do it during this time. Thanks for the suggestion!

Love that, Sarah! I'm in a similar spot and got similar feedback. It's nice to hear someone else say "hey, trust yourself and just be confident in decisions"

I love the notes idea. They helped me trust my gut and believe in my own work that I felt was going unnoticed. Definitely planning to do similar acts of gratitude with my current team.

I had an employee throw a chair at me. I calmed out of the situation

It’s been really surprising (frightening really LOL) because the reporters in my newsroom have called me calm a few times as we dealt with a massive flood and then this COVID crisis. Anyone who knows me will laugh. I think I am anything but calm but it is nice to know that the staff saw me that way.
Summer

Good example! Thanks
Summer

YAY!

I think the comment about doing the next right thing is so important. It's pretty much always the simplest path forward. For example, I was on a call with a bunch of photographers that were increasingly worried about not having face masks for conoravirus and it was kind of an overwhelming need. Then, I remembered I sew, so I started sewing some masks for them because that felt like the next right thing

Michael’s newsroom reflects his desire to hire and promote journalists who think differently. It’s a notable quality that shows his leadership in action.

What advice do you have for someone who is sometimes in a leadership role without a leadership title. It can be an awkward position at times.

Yes that can be tough.
