Leadership and Development of Design Teams: How to Guide the Maturity Process

This workshop will review the “Team Development Theory” that will help you identify the maturity phase of the team in which you work and will allow you to plan what you can do to accompany people in meeting their objectives and professional growth.
We know that management and leadership tools are not something we delve into in our design careers, but fear no more! Because this practical workshop will give you insights into how to advance as a leader and manage your team, from how to organize your feedback sessions, to how to collaborate and set goals.
It is a workshop designed for any designer who is leading teams or plans to exercise a manager role, but no previous experience is necessary to participate.
