Many creatives want to rise up the ladder, but few understand the role of a creative manager beyond the perception of power and increased pay. It’s important to help your team members understand what’s expected and required—the good and the hard. Talking through what it means to be a manager with them will help you better assess and guide the appropriate associates towards this next step in their career. In addition, a better understanding of a creative manager’s role will help associates self select out of a management track before they’ve committed to a role that may be out of synch with their career ambitions. Share this article with your team to help jump-start the conversation of what it means to be a manager within a creative environment.
“Rank does not confer privilege or give power.
It imposes responsibility.”
