Title: CEO

Industry: Entertainment

 

  • A president of a startup company and the executives, being higher level employees, need to have open and clear communication. The individual that fills the CEO role needs to implement and lead the communication policy. Communication moves a business forward and keeps the priority and directives going in a growth and upward direction. A team needs to understand expectations before a project can move forward. The leader needs to have knowledge of the delegated tasks and the ability to discuss expectations with the key executives, team, staff, and third party entities. A leader is only as good as a team that shows motivation. This is why communication needs to be positive but clear to the organization.

 

  • The leader needs to have full knowledge and the same education as a higher degree level entertainment business student before stepping into a role of this caliber so that the organization can maintain a factual reputation and ordered process. Company resources can be efficient with the business knowledge and achieve greater fiscal outcomes in a shorter period of time. The founder of All Consuming Film organization has polished and refined the company after being trained by Full Sail University. Therefore, the leader of a startup organization is to be expected to have the same level of education.

 

  • Ethics to the best possible ability will always bring an organization farther. A leader needs to uphold the best business practices for that organization. There are many companies that need to value ethical standards. A good leader will motivate and reward employees for following the same vision of ethics. All Consuming Film does and has valued ethical standards.

 

  • The leader needs to see the vision of the organization and strive to uphold that vision. The vision includes the direction of the company, policies, procedures, accolades, achievements, and mission statement.

 

  • The leader needs to be positive and create an environment that others want to be a part of and thrive in. The value of a motivated team is the output and conclusion of a driven and effective leader. The organization can thrive with smiling employees and a leader that strives for an even-keeled non-conflicted working environment. The CEO needs to ensure the conditioned atmosphere.
