This weekend WSJ Magazine has an insightful article on how Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider lead and manage a the highly successful and creative DreamWorks Studios. Leaders of cretaive groups will enjoy how they view each other and hence work well together.
"If you took our names off of our schedules, you would think that we were VPs of production," says Snider on a recent cool, gray day in Los Angeles. "Reading the scripts, taking story meetings, looking at the location-scout materials—there's just not a lot of hierarchy at the company. We're all production execs."
I can count on one hand the people I felt I had a creative brotherhood or sisterhood with. Stacey is one of those people. We do most everything together. There are no bosses here. We worry every thing to death and we hope everything to life.
