Designers increasingly find themselves in leadership roles. They are so passionate about the work they do, but are not always prepared for the leadership role that they find themselves in. The good thing is that we can learn the qualities of an awesome creative leader, and it is within our control to change our behaviour accordingly. My talk will be useful for in-house design teams, entrepreneurs in start-ups and design agencies. It will help them understand what qualities they should adopt if they want to support teams in design, development and delivery. I have tapped into Designit and Wipros global network of 15 studios and spoken to other subject experts.
