I've worked hard to develop a talent strategy that delivers resilience.
Three dynamics I lean into: Creating a magnetic culture, changing the trajectory of designers' careers, and being explicit with paths for succession, promotion and mobility.
A magnetic culture is a function of building a highly-skilled, diverse team that raises the bar of accountability and values every voice and POV.
We change the trajectory of designers' careers with experiences designed push them from their comfort zone, build their network with cross-boundary assignments and accountability that transforms them as leaders and change agents.
We design succession and mobility into our organization so people feel empowered to ask for more - even if it's outside the boundaries of my team. People leaving is just as fun and exciting as when someone new starts.
These three dynamics create an "oxygenating" effect - like an aquarium pump - keeping the team fresh, challenged, and motivated.
