Design Leadership Course

I’m building a live, cohort-based course on Design Leadership. I’ve led and managed UX teams at everything from startups to Fortune 500 companies like Google. Along the way I’ve coached and taught new and early career design managers and design leads. Now I’d love to teach you.

This course is designed for anyone who leads a design team or wants to in the future. I’m still putting final touches on the topics and I will adapt the course plan based on the needs of participants. Here are possible topics:

– The skills needed to become a successful leader

– How to build a world-class team

– How to turn UX strategy into results

– The 3 P’s – People, Process, Product

– Crafting a UX career ladder

– Using design principles to make sure your team delivers excellent design

– And much more!

Details are still being worked out but expect a mix of live instruction, community discussion, and self-paced material. You’ll also get templates and guides that you can reference after the course is over.
