VIDEO: More highlights from Ragan’s Council Career Conversations series

Thoughts and lessons from some of the top minds in comms.

Ragan’s Council Career Conversations, launched earlier this year as a part of Ragan’s Communications Leadership Council, asks members of the council questions about their career paths and their takes on challenges they’ve encountered. 

In an interview with Kristin Hoose, senior director, external constituent communications at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, she emphasized how career challenges can help us grow into better communicators in the long run, and that the journey isn’t the same for everyone.

Catherine Hernandez-Blades, senior vice president of marketing and communications at SAIC, told us that all comms leaders need to take heed of the rise of generative AI in the coming years.

Jamie Wisniewski, communications director at VMware, said that one of the best qualities an up-and-coming leader can embrace is a sense of empathy with co-workers and reports.

The full Council Career Conversations series is available exclusively to members of the Communications Leadership Council. For more information on how to join and access additional resources, click here.
