Leadership is a learned skill, and one fascinating field where we can draw inspiration from as leaders is the film and TV industry.


In this minisode, Liz reflects on leadership lessons from the series Ozark. It’s an award-winning show with great storytelling and characters and an even greater tale behind the scenes. She talks about how the creators of the show turned an idea into a successful series by being open to feedback, building the right team, and cultivating a culture of professionalism and collaboration on set. There’s a lot to take from the show’s leaders, especially with how they brought value to the table, that we can apply to whatever area of business we are working on.



• “Are you approachable? Are you inviting feedback? And do you know what you're doing?” (5:31-5:37)

• “You have to surround yourself with smarter people and be open to the feedback.” (5:48-5:53)

• “We need to be meticulous in the sense of are you coming to your meetings? Are you coming to the project knowing what your role is?” (6:24-6:34)

• “There's always a time and a place to bring on new energy, new fresh eyes on things, and welcome those people.” (9:18-9:24)

• “Building a team comes back to leadership, and you're only as good as the leaders as well as the people on that team.” (9:34-9:42)

• “If they have nothing nice to say about you, I think that's actually a problem.” (10:11-10:14)
