Back to Basic(s): Applying Military Leadership Skills to the Game Industry

April 17 at 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm

Room: 302C

By Ethan Witt

Leadership is broad subject with lots of books and guides to help people be better leaders. This is great, but a lot of these guides are focused on running companies and are primarily for business leaders, not team leaders or those aspiring to be leaders. So how do young leaders or those wanting to take the step to become leaders learn how to be leaders if content is not geared towards their situation? The focus for this talk is to give an overview of leadership, the dichotomies that lie therein, some pointers, axioms, and advice to help new leaders. Notable subjects will be the difference between managing people and leading people, traits to focus on as a leader, and how to lead a team. We will discuss some lessons and tools taught to military leaders and how to apply them to your team, whether that is a team of population: You, or a team of 100+. The tips and tricks here will teach you the basics of how to be a leader regardless of the size of the team. This talk will benefit all levels of leadership, but focuses on helping new leaders. Come for the talk, stay for the lame jokes, book references, and movie quotes!
