Stan Linhorst retired from Post-Standard in September 2017, but continues to write the weekly column Conversations on Leadership (

The series, which has run for six consecutive years, is widely followed.  Through interviews that cut to the heart of personal qualities and professional skill sets that build, motivate and engage great teams, Linhorst explores perspectives on positive leadership.  From infusing drive and passion, to building connections, creating a culture of transparency and trust, and operating with humility and creativity – what are the lessons learned from interviews with hundreds of leaders who have built great organizations and changed lives?  Linhorst has an inside view derived from conversations with his subjects that are remarkably intimate, touching on topics such as leading yourself, other individuals, groups, and communities.  Our Fireside chat with him will tease out the leadership lessons learned worth sharing.

Linhorst is also an innovator and thought leader.  He came to Syracuse from the San Diego Union-Tribune in 1984. He became Senior Managing Editor of The Post-Standard in 1999. Linhorst previously was the newspaper’s Director of New Media, launched in 1994, and is gratified to see how his startup succeeded.

He was president of the New York State Associated Press Association and the Syracuse Press Club. He is an emeritus member on the Board of Advisors of the Syracuse University School of Information Studies and is a member of Thursday Morning Roundtable. He has sat on the boards of the New York State Society of Newspaper Editors and the Interactive Newspaper Network.
