Workshop hos inUse: UX Leadership. Not Just for Managers
Datum: 04 april, 2014 Plats: Stockholm
Full day workshop with Kim Goodwin, Friday 4th of April, 2014
You know you’ve said it: We could do so much more if we got involved earlier… They think we’re just here to hit it with the pretty stick… Why doesn’t it get built as we design it? The list goes on. So how do we change our organizations–or perhaps our own behavior–to fix it?
In this full-day workshop, Kim will help you build skills in both change leadership and daily practice leadership. These skills aren’t just for managers; designers at all levels can use them to be more effective. We’ll cover:
Principles of effective leadership
Roles for practice leaders (of which management is only one)
Assessing and coaching others in design and collaboration skills
The relationship between leadership and culture
Assessing your organization’s culture
Adapting your design and leadership approaches to your context
Determining how much your team should adapt to culture or try to change it
Helping key individuals through change
Planning your approach to wider change
Come prepared to share some of your best (and worst) leadership moments, and to try some specific skills via role plays and other exercises.
