What kind of goals do you set to become a better designer?

    One of my goals for 2017 is to elevate the design competence of my team (7 engineers, 1 PM, 1 Product marketer). I want to do this because I think it's a good indicator of design leadership. To do this, I'm going to be putting them in front of customers using our products, having them conduct user testing sessions, getting them facilitating sketching and ideation sessions, etc. So far, it's going well. I'm measuring leading indicators (e.g., # of user tests/team member).

    My only advice is to talk to someone you trust who can help you develop your goals—maybe the person you report to or a colleague. Figure out what you'd like to get better at, how you will improve, and a way to measure it.
