Managing Creatives workshops

Every manager wants to get the best out of the people who work for them. Although, as we all know, managing creatives has its very own nuances and challenges

Co-developed for the design and creative industry with learning experts Invisio (as seen at Design Leaders Conference 2024), our ‘Managing Creatives’ workshops provide Designers and Creative People Managers with the tools and knowledge they need to excel as managers of creative teams in dynamic and ever-changing work environments.

Whatever stage you are at in your career, whether going from zero to hero or from senior manager to leader, these workshops will support you in your current role as a people manager or creative business owner, help you level up to a more senior role in your organisation (if that is your goal) or simply excel in your current role and get the best out of your team in any environment or situation.



  • Develop Practical Coaching Skills that can be immediately applied in managing creative teams and even with clients 
  • Enhance your Managerial Impact with a fresh perspective and best practice 
  • Leverage Relevant Management Techniques tailored to the needs of creative teams, such as giving impactful feedback on design decisions, building effective teams and planning for successful project execution
  • Adapt to Changing Work Models to navigate and lead in evolving work environments, including hybrid or remote setups
  • Gain a deeper understanding of your creative teams and yourself as a manager to foster a more cohesive and productive work environment.

Each workshop offers ample opportunities for skills practice and feedback, ensuring that participants can apply what they learn effectively in their day-to-day work.
