OPENING & WELCOME: Introductions, Checking-In, Reflection on Module 10, Progress Update, and Statistics on Individual Shows Podcasts from Podcast.Co
CONDUCT 29 - SET RULES and PRINCIPLES: Develop your own principles and rules for your show in line with COMETSA Values and Principles (copies are attached). Stick to your values and principles. Let your guests, listeners and other stakeholders know about them. Repeat them regularly at your show. That is what will build the culture and identity of your show.
CONDUCT 30 - HOLD BRIEFINGS: Do not fall into a trap of being too overconfident and underestimate the value of holding briefings with your guests, producers, co-hosts and performing dry runs before the show. You have nothing to lose but only gain from holding briefings and performing dry runs with few fellow colleagues or peer mentors and coaches. You will be surprised by the value you will extract from such practice. You will grow faster than you would have expected. Agree with your guests, production team, co-hosts, and support teams on the approach you are going to follow at your show.
CONDUCT 31 - READ and WATCH NEWS: There is nothing worse to handling a topic that is related to breaking news you have missed in the day. Your listeners will feel undermined and disrespected. It is enough to check the headlines, and trending hashtags to be relevant in facilitating the conversation. That is why it is important to have a chat with your guest speaker an hour before to check if there are any developments that may require adjustment of the plans for the show.
