Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
09.17.13

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, September 17, 2013, 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. Today, meet Paul Cestari, GM of Veria Living, offers his view on what it really means to be a leader.

What was your 1st leadership position?
My first real leadership position was with Showtime Networks. There, I really learned the value of management skills and building trust within a team. I learned (and not so easily I might add) that just because you are given a leadership role, that does not really mean that you are a leader. A true leader must work with resources available and get the very best possible performance given the circumstances. Of course, a good leader must also find good talent, train them, and cultivate them to be good leaders. However, no matter where you are on that spectrum, you must always remain diligent in driving the business through human resources. And because the resources are indeed human, I also learned that it is important to have your ear trained to focus on real individual needs regarding your staff and their family’s health and wellness needs… a topic that comes up every day for me at Veria Living.

What was one of your first management challenges and how did you handle it?
One of my first challenges was when I had to address performance issues, especially being a new manager myself. Fortunately, I have always been able to keep in the forefront of my mind that every employee is an equal person and always deserves the utmost respect and compassion. That said, it is also my responsibility, as an agent for the organization that I work for, to manage as efficiently as possible. With that in mind, I do not have the luxury of not addressing a performance issue. I realized early on that it truly is more compassionate to deal with it immediately and directly. Some inexperienced managers shy away from this type of feedback, but I have found it best to engage early and often. I believe that, by doing this, it actually gives everyone the very best chance for success. I also believe that by far the majority of people truly want to do a good job. A little redirection in a timely manner actually allows your team to quickly develop and tackle the challenges at hand.

What do you know now about being a leader that you didn’t know early in your career?
I now know that, as a leader in today’s business world, you need to earn the respect of your team. Clearly, respect is not just given. A team that trusts its leader is capable of accomplishing amazing things. Consequently, each member is able to contribute freely and willing to make mistakes knowing that they are working in an environment that is collaborative. On the other hand, earlier in my career, I just expected that my team would trust in me and listen to my direction. The problem with just making that assumption is that you never get to a real level of trust. Accordingly, you might have compliance, but rarely will you have true commitment.

What do you look for in candidates during the interview process?
Obviously, trade skills are required depending on what the role is, but I think one of the most important elements that I look for is drive and initiative. As much as people can learn the skills of a particular job, drive really is an innate thing. As long as someone possesses drive, they can typically learn as they go – encountering and overcoming new circumstances and challenges along the way. People with those talents usually manage things well beyond just simply being directed… they are the ones that take ownership of problems and relish the process of finding and implementing creative solutions.
