You know you’ve said it: We could do so much more if we got involved earlier… They think we’re just here to hit it with the pretty stick… Why doesn’t it get built as we design it? The list goes on. So how do we change our organizations–or perhaps our own behavior–to fix it? In this workshop, Kim will help you build skills in both change leadership and daily practice leadership. You'll leave with tools and concrete next steps to improve on your own leadership and make your teams more effective. These skills aren’t just for managers; designers at all levels can use them to get better design built.

Key takeaways:
  • Principles of effective leadership
  • Roles for practice leaders (of which management is only one)
  • The relationship between leadership and culture
  • Assessing your organization’s culture
  • Adapting your design and leadership approaches to your context
  • Determining how much your team should adapt to culture or try to change it
  • Helping key individuals through change: conversation tools
  • Planning your approach to wider change
