What is something you’ve learned in the Mike Curb MA in Creative Enterprise and Cultural Leadership program that will shape your future work?

Meeting highly successful leaders in the creative industries and hearing their unique stories has increased my awareness and ability to recognize and grow talent. As a leader, it has taught me to mentally step outside of my own mindset to become a constant observer.
