I've fulfilled roles in which I've led content teams as large as 15 people in-house, along with additional interns, external freelancers and content partners. I am comfortable in delegating tasks, motivating a team, addressing team issues and conflict when necessary and facilitating team members' success at achieving goals, both on smaller and larger scales.
