Cynopsis: Classified Advantage
07.30.13

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, July 30, 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 Marc Etkind, General Manager, Destination America.

What was your first leadership position?
I ran my own production, Pinball Productions. We produced programs for Discovery, Animal Planet and others. We made some classic shows like “Rumrunners, Moonshiners and Bootlegger” and “Custer’s Last Stand” that, even 10 years later, are still airing. We also produced “The Future is Wild” which became the highest rated show in the history of Animal Planet at that time.

What did you learn about managing people when you were in that job?
I started the company when I was 30. I was basically a field producer and all of a sudden I had 30-40 people working for me. While I knew how to make television, I didn’t know much about managing people. I learned so many things the hard way — let’s just say I apologized a lot. Eventually I learned that managing is not the same thing as micro-managing.

What do you know now that you didn’t know then?
Hire good people and then give them the freedom and trust to do their jobs. Encourage everyone to start saving for retirement. And most importantly, wear comfortable shoes and take care of your feet.
