The Handbook of Non-Toxic Leadership in the Creative Industries
In an industry that favours excellent output and creative genius over almost anything, are we talking enough about HOW we do things? Vera-Maria Glahn, creative operations lead and strategist, and former director of an independent creative studio, thinks we don’t.
Her project The Handbook of Non-Toxic Leadership in the Creative Industries is a collaborative compendium of methods and mechanisms for founders, creative leaders and artists in the form of an online glossary, growing in real-time.
By curating learnings and strategies from a network of contributors from many corners of the creative industries, as well as applying notes from publications and interviews to the practice of design, digital, media and arts, the Handbook strives to provide inspiration, awareness and tangible advice for how to “create in collaboration” in a positive and supportive way, for a more equal and diverse work culture.
