Support users in becoming awesome.

If you understand the emotional motivations of your users, you develop empathy and gain insight into their lives. Use this empathy and insight to design a product that not only supports the task at hand but also the motivations behind it.

Team communication is reflected in your product.

Communication is at the heart of design, whether you are communicating to your team or to your users. Address any communication issues within the team and make good communication a top priority.

Understand the business.

Understand and empathize with the business no less than you do for your users. The more designers can move skillfully between the business and user conversation, the more they can design solutions that satisfy both.
