Good morning. It’s Tuesday, April 8, 2014, and this is your weekly issue of Cynopsis: Classified Advantage!

Welcome to Leadership Lessons, the column that focuses on conversations with senior managers and leaders in the TV world, speaking candidly about their professional journeys and how that informs what they look for when hiring new employees.

Seung Bak, Co-CEO of DramaFever
What do you know now that you didn’t know then? Just how hard it is to build a company from scratch. Creating a product, recruiting talent, raising capital, convincing media companies to license their content to you, and building an audience all turned out to be much more difficult than we imagined before starting the business.

What are the two most important elements of being a leader?
The leader’s primary role is to create an environment where others can succeed. And to help people believe in the organization’s goals, empower them with resources and basically get out of the way. The focus is not about you but the people you’re leading.

Tom Maney,Senior Vice President, Fox Sports En Espanol
What are the necessary ingredients for a highly functioning team?
I believe it’s the combination of unique differences and individual strengths that makes for a great team, whether in sales or sports. How we work together, how we motivate each other, how we solve problems and develop creative ideas, all come from everyone bringing their different experiences into the process.


Cancun? Panama Beach? Punta Cana? Daytona Beach?
