I’ve been blessed throughout my long career in communications to learn from some of the best. What works & what doesn’t. What’s a good idea & what’s a bad idea. I’ve learned how to handle different types of personalities in the newsroom, reporting in the field, in business & in the public.
On the flip side, after several years in the business, I was able to pass on some of what I learned to young reporters, anchors, etc. This helped them develop their skills faster if they took the advice to heart, since they could avoid some of the mistakes I made early on in my career. It makes me so proud to see them move up in the business! I still hear from many of them to this day. It only makes sense that a lot of these traits also transfer over to business or whatever field someone chooses to enter. Over the next little while, I’ll post some of what I recognized to be the best traits found in the best!
