Have you ever struggled through a project with a sour team dynamic? Or have you ever delighted in teamwork with a group of people that strive for excellent team culture? We want to hear your experiences - the good, the bad, and the ugly - as we discuss the importance of modeling the way, inspiring a shared vision, challenging the process, enabling others to act, and encouraging the heart.

Hear three recent graduates of USC’s Game Program discuss our adventures in leadership over the course of a 16-month capstone project and how we applied lessons from Exemplary Leadership (Kouzes and Posner) to game development. We highlight specific applications of each of the 5 principles and how they foster healthy, productive team cultures, all the while relating our experiences as team leaders of art, design, and engineering disciplines.

Come participate in this lecture/discussion to learn practical ways to improve your current and future game projects!
