ASNE trains next generation of news leaders in Chicago

ASNE trained a diverse class of 25 emerging news leaders this past weekend at the Emerging Leaders Institute at Loyola University Chicago. For two days, June 9-10, attendees assessed their strengths and challenges as a leader; learned different aspects of leadership, including things great bosses share, leaders' role in ethics and integrity in the digital age, basics of building and managing a budget and how design thinking helps; discussed how to tackle tough conversations; and set specific goals for becoming a better leader in six months and in one yearClick here to see a slide show of photos from the institute!
