How to build a happy, productive design team

There are many articles and books out there that will give you great advice on leading and growing design teams. Some are theoretical, making the advice hard to put into action, others are very detailed but hard to refer to and use on a daily basis.

These are the key areas we’ll cover:

• Measuring and coaching happiness and productivity
• Psychological safety
• Company-wide culture
• Default frameworks and expectations
• Leadership principles
• G.R.O.W. individuals
• Hiring
