Game Studio Leadership: You Can Do It


Being a leader at a game studio is terrifying. Most studio leaders have had no formal leadership training, and the training that exists often does not apply to game development. But there are simple principles of game studio leadership that can help anyone become a better leader, no matter how big or small the team. Examples from a wide variety of studios will illustrate several topics, including: what leadership means in a game studio, how to know if you are cut out for leadership, best practices for solving people problems, mission statements that make a difference, using Jedi powers on clients, how leadership changes when a studio grows, and what to do when everything goes wrong.
