Leadership Trend: Function AND Design

Self-Leadership Trend #1 - Function AND Design

This is the first of six in a series of self-leadership trends adapted from Daniel Pink’s book A Whole New Mind.

Products, services and experiences need to be functional. That’s presumed. AND, today it’s crucial they also be beautifully designed to engage our emotions.

How to be a Designer

Here are five things you can do today to boost your design awareness…

  1. Keep A Design Notebook – Take notes on good and dodgy design – start to notice what is being designed around you!
  2. Design Your Own – Sit down with a designer and design something, like a piece of furniture or your business card.
  3. Visit A Design Museum – Most major cities have them or, better still, take a trip to a world famous one! Think MOMA.
  4. Buy Design – Buy something designer. Start with something special under $45 – design is affordable.
  5. Get A Makeover – Start to relate to yourself as a piece of art and design your appearance. Style speaks.
