Essential Skills for Rising Newsroom Leaders (April 2019)
Hey, managers: Need a shot of confidence? It’s time to let Poynter help you jumpstart your management career. Maybe you’re an inexperienced manager just starting your new role. Or maybe you’ve got managerial experience but have had little training. In either case, you could use some tools — along with that dose of confidence.

Poynter’s popular “Essential Skills for Rising Newsroom Leaders” seminar will give you both: the tools and the confidence to lead and grow a staff of high-performing journalists. You’ll receive personalized feedback — from your newsroom — about your strengths and challenges. You’ll get help for leading your staff through the transition of becoming digital-first. After the weeklong seminar, you’ll return home with confidence and management tools that will begin paying dividends immediately.

Who Should Apply: New managers from digital, broadcast and print organizations. This seminar is also beneficial to experienced managers who have had little or no management training. Employees who are about to be promoted will also be considered for acceptance.
