About Cooper U's Design Leadership Training in San Francisco, California
January 29 - 30, 2014
Ever had an innovative and beautiful idea that never saw the light of day? Feel like your organization believes in the value of design, but prioritizes deadlines over fully developed ideas? These are symptoms of unhealthy communication and collaboration. If you feel frustrated, alone, or powerless, we can introduce you to principles and practices that will give you more influence over the outcomes of your interactions with others.
In this intensive, two-day course you will learn from Cooper experts who’ve been coaching companies to deliver better products and services for 20 years. Learn how to diagnose the unique challenges your team or organization is facing and get to the root of the communication roadblocks. Get hands on experience with communications tools like storytelling to promote big ideas and get buy in. Use collaborative techniques that help you create an environment that invites participation. Afterwards, you’ll have the ability to guide the creation of products and services that are financially viable, technically feasible, and that your customers love. Most of all you’ll have the skills to become a leader in your organization.
P.S. If you're interested in doing a cultural assessment and developing new ways of working together as an organization, you should check out our Designing Culture Master Class on January 31 (right after this class!) Info here: www.dc0114.eventbrite.com
