To attract staffers for your publications, you have to understand the difference between soft and hard skills, recognize what motivates people and be able to apply these concepts to student media.
I asked Candace to join us after recognizing during a previous chat that student editors understood why they participated in student media, but they had a difficult time articulating it to others.
I heard Candace speak on the topic of leadership, motivation and recruitment during a conference some years back and still remembered key points from her presentation. As I suspected, she was the perfect cohost to engage intelligently on this topic.
Below is an overview of highlights from the chat.
Thank you, Candace, for cohosting. I appreciate your insight so much. And thanks as well to all of you who attended.
