Episode 45: Leadership Part 1

When you started your design business, leadership might not have been the first skill on your mind, but the truth is you are a leader from day one.

Whether you’re leading yourself or a whole team, the way you lead is important. In this episode, I’m joined by coach Valerie Priester to talk about what it takes for a designer to be a good leader.

We’re talking about things like having a growth mindset, learning from your failures without beating yourself up, building confidence, and how all these things define who you are as a leader.

If you want to brush up on your leadership skills, this is the episode for you. And the good news is, it’s only Part 1! Stick around for Part 2 for even more of Valerie’s expert advice.

Topics We Cover in This Episode: 

  • Looking for the lessons in your mistakes 
  • Why you need to be willing to be vulnerable
  • Recognizing your strengths and weaknesses
  • How to build confidence as a leader
  • The beauty of learning as you go 
  • The value of getting clear on your vision 
  • How to avoid comparing yourself to other designers and business owners

I hope you enjoy this episode about shifting your mindset and becoming an effective leader in your design business. This work isn’t always easy, but it is always worth it. I’m so excited to have Valerie on the podcast and can’t wait for you to hear what she has to share in Part 2.
