DA Workshop Tāmaki Makaurau | Elevating Design Leadership: From Maker to Mentor

DA WORKSHOP TĀMAKI MAKAURAU

Elevating Design Leadership: From Maker to Mentor
Do you manage people or lead a team in your role?

Design Assembly presents a workshop to support you to navigate the challenges and opportunities you face leading people in your work. We all can remember the best and the worst boss we ever had. If your job is only as good as your boss, how do we give our leaders the right skills to support their people well?

In a profession that thrives on innovation, collaboration, and pushing the boundaries of creativity, your role goes beyond just being a manager of people. It’s about becoming a coach, a mentor, and a catalyst for growth. If people grow, studios and the work grows. The ability to lead, inspire, and guide your people can make all the difference.

In this workshop, we will focus on practical strategies to help you transition from being a manager to a mentor and coach by giving you essential skills such as;

Setting clear expectations
Briefing designers effectively to get great results
Supporting your team with sensitivity. How do adapt your style to theirs to get the best from them
Tackling potential sticking points and overcoming problems
How to give constructive feedback to allow the design process and project to keep moving forward. The best managers set individualised expectations and give individualised feedback
Discover how to align your leadership approach with your team’s needs and aspirations, ensuring that you not only get the results you desire but also nurture a culture of growth and creativity
Join us on this transformation and get ready to unleash the true potential of your design leadership skill set.
