“Many creative team leaders have received very little, if any, leadership and managerial training. Most were subject matter experts with an ability to take on informal leadership responsibilities until they were recognized by their managers as individuals capable of managing a team,” said Jackie Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Cella. “This leaves large gaps in needed expertise in areas including, finance, resourcing, project management and people management. The objective of the MIA Masters Summit is to provide a space where leaders can take a step back from their day-to-day activities and take a holistic view of their businesses, and to engage with other leaders and share challenges and solutions. We’re extremely proud that this program has been recognized by ASA, and believe it is empowering the leadership of Cella MIAs to be able to effectively lead their teams to continued success.”
