Join the ONA Atlanta local chapter on Thursday, June 14 for a discussion on how to lead from anywhere with Samantha Ragland, Digital Strategy Manager for the Palm Beach Post.
Networking "happy hour" with food and drink will start at 6:30pm. Lecture and group activity will start at 7pm.
From Samantha Ragland, ONA 2017 speaker: "If there's one thing I've learned that I wish to share with the masses, it's this exact idea -- that you can lead from ANY position. Whether you're a student, an intern, a reporter, in revenue, in management, with direct reporters or without them... it doesn't matter. You can lead your colleagues from whatever position you hold. And yes, you can be an effective and valuable leader without ever being an editor or manager of people."
"We'll have a GIF-filled good time with this training that will breakdown three opportunities you have to lead -- with others, with your boss and with groups -- and will include writing, small group and pop-up exercises. So come ready to make new friends, to teach as the leader you are and to learn from the leaders around you. Bring an open and reflective mind because what you'll be taking away with you, I hope, is a better understanding of your leadership style and ability as well as practical ways to display both in your newsroom."
