  • A guide. You know how to inspire and coordinate teams and work, knowing when and where to push while ensuring progress and meeting delivery expectations.
  • A leader and a doer when needed. You balance when to delegate and when to dive in. You lead by example but are constantly open to learning from your team. You understand that leadership is a way of interacting, not a job title, and most often relies more on listening than being heard.

  • A highly competent communicator. You have great spoken, written and visual communications skills. You love storytelling and understand that framing and narrative are as important to outcomes as the solutions being designed.
  • Leader in collaboration. You enjoy coaching designers who work with cross functional agile teams to collectively define the best solutions. You understand that its more important to get there together than to shine.
  • Passionate. You are driven to design beautiful experiences that impact peoples lives. You make it your business to know as much as you can about the people you are designing for and stay up-to-date on the latest design trends and techniques.
  • Have a can-do attitude. You display an infectious positivity that motivates those around you. Youre excited to both share and listen to ideas.
  • A successful juggler. You dont get overwhelmed or flustered easily. Youre able to keep track of multiple projects at once, manage your and the teams time efficiently, and keep in lock step with your co-leads.
