Leadership Unplugged

...is part of the reason I've been so SLACK on the blog.  All this week, the staff of CNN Student News has been working with 104 Atlanta-area high school students, shining up their leadership skills and showing them firsthand what takes place behind the scenes at CNN.

It's awesome.  We're covering everything that goes into television journalism, from digital media to marketing to the decisions we're faced with daily.  And as the MC, I've been working to moderate panels, ask questions, and try to stay out of trouble.

It's a chance to get out of the office, meet personally with students who watch our show, and try to give an example of effective leadership.  And it's really cool that I'm getting paid for this.

What have you been up to?

Carl Azuz, Anchor
