Not only does it takes a team, it takes the RIGHT people on the team.

From the initial idea, to who do we know, to what skills are needed, and can we be really REAL with each other…there are a ton of moving parts. The right people on the team make the difference. Working together for years on different projects doesn’t remove headaches, problems, or friction. It’s about how we show up, how we support the end vision and each other. Jess Dewell visits with Scott Scowcroft and Iva Ignjatovic about what we’ve learned and what vision we are building toward.

Notable and Quotable:

Jess Dewell: When we talk freely we can learn from each other.

Scott Scowcroft: As a manager, it’s great to have another resource to [learn from].

Iva Ignjatovic: As a strategist, I’m always asking myself where are we going and what’s the point?

Iva Ignjatovic:  Our past guests have something smart to share.

Scott Scowcroft: The team surrounding #VBBRadio are not amateurs at this.

Jess Dewell: We use what we know for speed, and then as the team grows new technology emerges that build connection and efficiency.

Iva Ignjatovic: If it’s easy and logical, bring it on!

Jess Dewell: When we embrace the actions and how they fit in, the bigger picture emerges.

Jess Dewell: We can do all the tests we want, but until we go forward and open it up we don’t actually know what’s going to happen.

Iva Ignjatovic: During problems, we pull up our sleeves and work together.

Scott Scowcroft: The shows we produce are worthy of our audience.
