Industry Insights: The Importance Of Learning To Respect Boundaries In Media Relationships
A few quick updates before I get into today's Industry Insights edition.
1 - I finished The Crown! And as I told my friend Kristin last night, I'm kind of disappointed in myself. It was FANTASTIC. (I especially loved episode 3 of this season for the historical contexts) - but I spent 3 days on a Crown bender and now...it's over. We actually binge Outlander together each year, and we make a concerted effort to stretch it out so we have more of it to enjoy. I'm going to have to try to do this more with my favorite shows in the future.
So, are you a binger or a savorer?
2 - Next weekend, I'll actually be in St. Martin, so your regularly scheduled industry insights for next week will possibly come at another time, probably as a supplemental edition either a weekday this week or early next. But I promise it will come!
And now today.....I thought this week's industry insights could touch on the issue of boundaries. Obviously, I love forming deep and long-lasting relationships among media and PR, but there ARE some boundaries we should respect on both sides.
I think the pandemic, for all its horrors, taught us to look at people and time in a different way, and appreciate humanity vs. overproduction as value. Being part of a community means giving and taking, not just taking. That's why transactional relationships will never work. Establishing that level of professional respect will actually allow all of our relationships to do better and flourish like never before.
