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.
