About the session

Do you ever feel like you don’t know what you’re doing in your job? Or are you looking to make a major change in your career and feel nervous about it?

Lauren will share her lessons learned from transitioning to her first management role. 

You’ll come away realising that you are not alone if change worries you, and that it’s more than okay if you haven’t figured it all out yet.

Participant Takeaways:

  • How to plan an application and interview process that gauges the various skills a content designer needs and the difficulties in recruiting content designers
  • The mindset shift that happens while transitioning from practitioner to leader, and how to balance learning new skills yourself while trying to train staff new to your discipline
  • How regular reflection sessions help get the best out of your team
