Switching Leadership Styles in Game Development Practice

Stan Just  |  Producer, 11 bit studios S.A.


Location: Europasaal

Format: Lecture
Track: Production
Vault Recording: Video


Every game studio's senior staff have a way of addressing their employees. After getting some experience, most of us realize that there is no single style that would fit the various weird and uneasy situations we encounter while making a game. Sometimes you are happy to involve as many people as you can and sometimes you just need something done quickly, your way. So, we adopt, we try and we make mistakes. This session is aimed at helping out in such situations by showing which approaches tend to be most effective in various circumstances. These few tips are easy, intuitive and straightforward - and may turn out to be very useful to you in practice.

Takeaway

Attendees will be presented with a simple approach (based on leadership theories and real-life experiences) that strives to capture the most effective way of addressing employees in a game development environment.

Intended Audience

This presentation is targeted at seniors, leads, managers and producers who are responsible for the work of others. Regardless of the size of the organization, and whether you are a founder of a small start-up or a middle manager in a global corporation, you can use these tips if you feel that there is still room for improvement in the way you lead your people.
