About this Workshop

As UX and Product Design continues to evolve, so has the design leadership. It is no longer only about people management, but leading a function. Leadership also needs to be more inclusive than ever.

Before David Hoang ever ran his first design team, his group of seasoned mentors prepared him for what is about to come. In this workshop, he’ll share his experiences and facilitate an immersive conversation around the challenges of design leadership, rewards, and how to be the North Star for your team.

This workshop will cover:

  • If design leadership is indeed something you really want
  • challenges of a first-time design leader
  • creating your vision and purpose statement
  • running a smooth ship with operational frameworks that stem from the team vision
  • people management for both the rewarding and hard conversations

Whether you’re a seasoned design leader or hoping to make the switch to people management, this workshop will bound to be a hands-on and immersive workshop.
