Do you want to advance into leadership but are not sure if you're ready? 

Have you just landed that position or started that new venture that you've been working so hard for but it's harder than you anticipated?


Do you feel like you're not getting the best out of your creative team? 

Sometimes achieving that next career goal is both exciting and scary. Of course, you can do the work, but making the transition from maker to leader can provide its own set of challenges. Well, we're here to help! This class offers group and 1-on-1 training to help you navigate your leadership role with confidence and apply what you've learned. At the end of three months, you'll be able to lead dynamic teams in a way that is authentic, empowering and inspiring.

“Nakita is the absolute best. She delivered an empowering, thought-provoking talk for Atlanta's 2019 World Information Architecture Day (WIAD) conference–which, coincidentally, was Atlanta's largest UX event of the year, and the second largest WIAD conference in the world for 2019! She is an empathetic advocate and someone you definitely want in your corner by your side. She is all the good
things–professional, responsive, respectful... but also, very fun!"
