Presented by Albert Poon, DoorDash

Overview

Budding leaders often come from technical backgrounds. They are the best designers or coders or project managers. Though technical skills are necessary, a new set of skills is required to harness the technical skills of other in a team to do big things.

Today, Albert wants to share a few lessons he’s learned about leading a team. In his case, designers, but this applies broadly to any team of actual human being. He didn’t learn these from a book, in a class, seminar, or even in the studio. He learned everything of practical value from wrangling young kids learning to play baseball.

Objective

If teams are the only way to achieve big, significant things, then it’s imperative that team leaders and budding leaders think about leadership and team-building. The purpose of this presentation is share ways of thinking about leadership that is suited to each person and each team’s strengths.

Target Audience

People who lead teams in projects. People who manage and build teams.

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn

Accepting and thriving with responsibility, but no control
Prioritizing the things that matter
Positioning your team so it can be valuable
Finding a way to succeed with the designers you have
Building a culture that outlasts your superstars
