How Pam Kaufman Serves as “Chief Motivational Officer” at Viacom/Nickelodeon
Pam Kaufman is truly a rock star with the coolest job! Not only are all the businesses she leads very exciting, but as President of Viacom Nickelodeon Global Consumer Products, she notes her greatest responsibility is being the “Chief Motivational Officer” for her teams.
We met in NYC a couple of weeks ago to record this session in NBTV Studios. As she walked into the Studio, I immediately felt her incredible confidence. A confidence that comes from having led a fulfilling career and being grateful and energized every day in her role of helping others succeed.
We had so much fun in this session talking about all the cool products of Viacom and how she thinks about the “four screens”, from Jersey Shore Family Vacationon social media to SpongeBob SquarePants on Broadway to the “Pearl Jam for Preschoolers” Paw Patrol 90 city tour to pop culture star JoJo Siwa to Slime Festsand Slime Kits.
But, we spent most of the time, as she spends most of her time, talking about how to truly motivate teams, how to foster a collaborative and productive environment, how to give the greatest gift of feedback, and how to help individuals flourish.
Join us as we talk through some of the greatest leadership lessons and hear how Pam navigated her own career from looking for her first job to now being a dynamite leader, mother and mentor.
