Cynopsis: Classified Advantage

Good morning. It’s Tuesday, November 12, 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, Gavin Harvey, CEO, Sportsman Channel.

What was your first leadership position?
I crossed the Rubicon from “brand/marketing guy” to President, Outdoor Life Network (later Versus) in 2004.

What do you wish you’d known then that you know now?
I wish I had known earlier in my career how much I would enjoy the responsibilities and role of being the chief executive of a business. Working with a board, and directing a well-coordinated, highly-competitive executive team is a great job.

What does being a leader mean to you?
I identify strongly with General David Petraeus’s 12 Rules for Leadership. In particular, I work hard to be a good listener – listening to customers, to associates, the board, my staff, our people in the trenches. Listening is not just respectful – it provides fuel for good decision-making, it pulls everybody into the action, and it unifies the team.

If you could be in a profession besides TV, what would it be?
TV saved me from a mediocre career on the professional bull-riding circuit. That being said, if I were to start over today, I would be working on innovative technology and programs that utilize media, content and interaction to help educate the increasing numbers of children with learning “disabilities.” There are so many kids who are really smart, have all the potential in the world, but do not respond well to “the standard curriculum.”

What advice do you give jobseekers?
No selfies. And  be confident – be focused – we want to know you will get the job done for us.
