15-17 May 2023
European Youth Centre, Budapest, Hungary

Applications are now open for a new workshop “Leading Through Change at the EYC Budapest, Hungary.

How does the way you lead your team affect them and how successful they are? The move to digital means everything is fundamentally changing. But what does this mean for those responsible for leading teams producing the output? This 2-day workshop helps anyone managing a team to understand how their style of leadership impacts team members and how well they work.

What can participants expect?

You can expect a highly interactive workshop which offers practical tools as well as the chance to share experiences with colleagues from across European regional TV stations. It helps to build confidence and leadership know-how with discussion and self-reflection on 3 key themes:

 • Are you a manager or a leader? - What’s the difference and why does it matter when going through change? 
 • Clarity & Feedback - Does your team understand what’s expected of them? And how effective is your feedback so they know how to do better tomorrow?
 • Empowerment - Create leaders not followers. Why, and how can you do this?

Who’s this training designed for?

This training is suited to those new to the role of leading people as well as those who are more experienced. It doesn’t matter which platform you work on, whether you’re editorial or technical.

Who will lead the workshop?

The workshop is led by Mia Costello, a former BBC journalist and regular host of CIRCOM training events. Mia now runs the New Leader Programme at the BBC as well as training in culture change and communication with broadcasters around the world. Clients include Channel NewsAsia, SVT, the Press Association and BBC World Service.

Where and when?

The workshop will be held at the European Youth Center, Budapest, Hungary on Tuesday 16th to Wednesday 17th May 2023, with a working dinner on arrival at 1900hrs on the evening of Monday 15th May.
