Four principals of leadership: listen, give clear direction then get out of the way, take responsibility not credit, don’t block others’ light. Listen: Let others be heard, regardless of level, be accessible and available – lean on soft skills here – and be an advocate. Give direction then get out: This shows trust in your team and will speed up processes. Be explicit in your expectations and what touchpoints you want to be involved in, but let your team do what they do best. Allow future leaders to emerge and grow. Take responsibility not credit: It’s a leader and decision maker’s responsibility to make things happen and to make sure those who did the work or who came up with the idea get the right credit. Don’t block other’s light: great leaders aren’t always those with the winning idea or the loudest voice in the room. Step aside and let the light shine on everyone – there’s room enough for all to have opportunity and recognition. (interesting read: Are You a Blocker or an Activator)

"A Strong Female Lead" - Why It Is & Isn't Funny Chris Murphy
1:10 - 1:30Main Room
Comedy has the ability to bring people together with a spoon full of sugar that helps us swallow the "tough" issues. In entertainment and media, we often use comedy as a vehicle to capture the hearts and minds of our audiences. When we cast women in these comedic pieces, we often call for "a strong female lead", written by men. This talk will dive into the importance of employing comedic female voices, the problematic (and hilarious) use of this turn of phrase, and the importance of women writing women.
