What makes a great content director?

You are inquisitive, inspiring and imaginative—continually developing unique content ideas that grow from exploratory research and intuition about the connection between products, brands channels and human behavior. Specifically, your colleagues consider you a/an:

Strategic Partner. Independently running medium to large content projects, from editorial workflow and development to measurement and optimization! You are a critical thinker who likes to work alongside the team to develop points of view and surface solutions that can catalyze change.
Solid Communicator. You are articulate and persuasive, presenting information across a variety of sources clearly, and with conviction. Framing ides in simple language, building strong rationale for content recommendations, and crafting compelling stories are all practically second nature for you. And you present yourself with confidence, professionalism, authority and humility. You can capture a room without feeling the need to own it, creating a space for creativity and dialog.
Team Leader and Facilitator. You have a natural and proven ability to lead and inspire teams—to build consensus and work effectively within a cross-disciplinary team. You are comfortable designing and managing internal and client work sessions with multiple stakeholders, and drive to specific outcomes.

You are current and interested in trends, industry debates, technological and communication innovations, and are constantly applying your learning to push thinking. You are also resourceful—know where to go to understand the client’s business environment and strategy, and what it takes to conduct a comprehensive competitive analysis.

Opportunity Seeker. With one eye always on the future, you anticipate opportunities as outcomes from existing projects, and develop internal and client relationships that foster trust and promote the teams services and expertise to help capture new opportunities.
Creative Contributor. You value creativity and are excited about the creative process—comfortable with the fact that creativity is strange, intangible, and often hard to understand. From ideation to conceptually discussing an idea and how it can work in the marketplace, you are ready to roll up your sleeves and contribute to the process.
Focused, Multi-Tasker. You enjoy versatility and can handle multiple projects and re-prioritizations—all the while taking ownership of the quality of each of your own deliverables.
