Connect as a Servant Leader with Judi Terzotis, President of The Advocate/Times-Picayune: Episode 8 of The Seismic Shift Podcast with Michelle Johnston

“We rise by lifting others.” – Robert Ingersoll

Communication and connection are very different. Communication is transactional, getting information from A to B. Connection, on the other hand, is a shared experience.

When interacting, do your people feel seen, heard, valued, and appreciated? Are you interested in becoming more of a servant leader in 2023? Do you wonder how you can meaningfully connect with your people to get the results you need?

2022 Publisher of the Year and the President and Publisher of The Advocate/Times-Picayune, Judi Terzotis epitomizes servant leadership. In this episode, I speak with Judi who explains that by building a positive listening environment and disrupting the status quo, we can create a positive workplace where people feel connected.

Judi Terzotis was named president of The Advocate in February 2018, joining Georges Media Group from Gannett where she spent the majority of her 30-year career in the media business. She held many positions with the company including sales consultant, advertising director, general manager, and publisher. Most recently she was the president of the Gulf Region overseeing 8 markets in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. She was recognized by Gannett as a finalist for the 2012 Manager of the Year award.
