Supporting leaders that report to you
I’ve been a director in video games for a few years now. I have had my share of “learning opportunities” along the way (this is code for: I have made mistakes). In recent years I’ve found that one of my hardest struggles is supporting people who have to become leaders to succeed in their jobs.
It’s honestly much easier to lead a group of people directly. You get to collaborate with them, work together and establish rapport, tackle creative challenges together, and bring your creative vision directly to the people who will implement and build.
