EIC Debrief Email

Here's how to send a Sunday debrief email to your Odyssey CS.

235

The goal of a debrief email is for you as EIC to understand your own team and be able to verbalize those things to your CS. The best debrief emails help you not only take stock of your team on Sunday but as a touchbase throughout the following week.

  • In the first line: tell your CS how things went this weekend and how many articles are in
  • Body of email: give your CS a list of all the creators that have not submitted and next to their name, state why and when they will get it in! If they are MIA, note that!
  • In the last line: sum up how you are feeling about hitting the goal if you haven't already, and any other admin things you need to update me on (creators dropping, new people coming, tech problems, etc). Be positive here!
  • Conclusion: list the titles/article links to what you believe are your 3-4 best articles this week. When we say best, the pieces you believe have the most potential to gain traction. Remember, a piece can be written perfectly but without a great topic, headline or cover photo, it's gonna flop

Here's a great example:

Good morning!!

This week motivation was obviously low since it was spring break and everyone was away/busy/etc. A lot of people did make an effort to submit by Sunday night though so I really appreciated that! And I know that we'll be right back in the swing of things real soon! We have some awesome, relatable articles coming out this week so I still think we're gonna kill it nonetheless :)

Current count: 33 with possibly a few more coming in the afternoon


People who haven't submitted:

Emma - no answer

Brittany - said she would submit last night, hasn't yet

Emily - no answer

Katie - will be up by 5pm!

Ashley - texted Victoria that she has to leave the team for a bit

Anna - waiting for a reply

Updates:

-Lots of newbies coming in recently aka our CE's have been killing it w/ on boarding!

-Going to reach out to people individually to go over individual goals, match them up with article ideas that suit them, etc

-Looking into having team meeting soon

The father-daughter duo co-founded the brand and has since generated a passionate, dedicated community of women.

MaryEllen Reider

I was lucky enough to meet MaryEllen Reider over a decade ago as a fellow freshman in college. Since then, I had the luxury of being able to witness her evolution from the faithful companion I went to my first job fair with to the woman who is now a pioneer in destigmatizing the portrayal of women's reproductive health.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.

Ever since the current upheaval of societal silence happening in the country caused by the #BlackLivesMatter movement, there has been a bigger push for people to support Black-owned businesses.

Granted, there are a lot fo Black-owned businesses to support, it just takes time to find them. With that being said, fashion is a sector, just like any sector really, in a culture that still has people of color calling out for more diversity.

There are many different ways people overcome obstacles in their lives. Thankfully, the stigma surrounding therapy is slowly (but surely) slipping away and we're opening up about our problems and needs. For some, a good workout is just as relaxing.
