Welcome to Leadership Lessons, the column that focuses on conversations with senior managers and leaders in the media world, speaking candidly about their professional journeys. Today, meet Jenny Daly, Founder and President of T Group Productions. She oversees a production slate that includes House of Food (MTV), Celebrities Undercover (Oxygen), Storage Hunters (truTV), Container Wars (truTV), Invention USA (History), Thingamabob (H2) and Mystery Diners (Food Network).
What was your first leadership position and what lessons did you learn from it?
I was a senior producer responsible for The X Show on Fox. I learned that the only person you can blame is yourself regardless of who messed up, because ultimately I’m responsible.
What’s the most important part of managing a staff?
Ensuring that people are being heard and tackling issues in a way that all aspects of the situation are examined before deciding on next steps.
Tell us about a difficult management problem and what you did to overcome it.
I have had to make the difficult decision as to whether a person hired at one stage can grow into his/her expanded role or needs to be replaced with a person who has is more qualified person for the new position. It’s always difficult to let people go.
What do you look for when interviewing job candidates?
I look for passion, and people who are bold and take risks. I surround myself with creative and aggressive people who don’t just want to give me a “yes" but fight to ensure that whatever we make is the best… even if I may not always agree, at least I’m always challenged to look at all sides.
