Grooming an Heir and a Spare

We spend so much time focused on doing what’s needed right now in service of great design: Take care of the day-to-day needs of the team. Hit quarterly milestones. Meet and exceed expectations all around. With so many decisions that need to be made hour by hour, how can you take the long-term view when you walk out of the office? Not just for your team, but for your life and career?

In this 30-minute talk as part of the Leading Design conference in London, we’ll focus on two questions that we hear regularly from design leaders, and that we’ve had to wrestle with ourselves: How do I start thinking about the long term, both for myself and my team? And how will I prepare my team to be successful if I’m not there?
