Table-Topic: The Leadership Toolkit for Growth and Team Management

When failure is not an option: The strategy and leadership toolbox
This table topic discusses the basis of strategic planning for studio growth, as well as tactics for effective team management through growth. Layoffs, shareholder value, crunch, genAI taking our jobs and studio closures – how do you navigate growing your studio during uncertainty? How do you plan effectively and execute your plan, while your staff are stressed out and flooding you with questions on their job security, and your clients or exec team are squeezing your budgets? This session provides a set of practical tools for the two key areas that every manager needs to run a growing studio: Strategic Planning both for service providers and first-party developers, and Practical Team Leadership for all. We will discuss strategy tools used in MBA schools, as well as leadership and communication tactics to help you navigate uncertainty.
