“Being a boss” and delegating tasks is just micromanagement in disguise. In my experience, I learned that the inclusion of ideas - and empowerment of the people around me - really did produce better outcomes. Then again, how can one actually get to the promotion ladder of empowering people, when the promotion ladder is so hard to reach with nowaday's function of the corporate world? Obviously, it's easier to leave Senior Designers at their Senior positions, give them some leadership tasks and delay their promotions, until it's completely inevitable. Or so one might think.

I've struggled a lot with those, and not only, outcomes of the corporate design world and I've come to the conclusion that we all need a framework that we could use to combat micromanagement and corporate professional outcomes - a framework I'd like to call Purposeful Ignorance.

In this chat, I want you to walk away with:

  • Actionable steps you can take to combat the micromanager in you, but also the one that is allocated to you
  • Skills to hone if you’d like to get into management
  • Delegation strategies for managers and team members
