The design process will get you nowhere if you and your team are stuck in the wrong mindsets. Let’s get together to create an epic brain trust where we’ll explore ideas for overcoming all of the crap that comes at us each day and align ourselves for setting the foundation for the design process so we can actually gett some sh*t done. Let’s destroy some barriers together so we can shift from “we can’t” cultures into “bring it” mindsets by establishing value, knocking down barriers, and finding the right champions.
As X (experience) people, we get it, right? Put the people first, stay human-centric, focus on the user journey, and all of the rest of the same old stuff. If we’re serious about actually humanizing our work, though, our mission is much bigger. We have to bust out of our comfort zones and become explosive evangelists for the “C’s” and “U’s” that connect with our “X’s.” Let’s get beyond the hacks of just trying to get through another day and instead take a bold whack at disrupting our eco-systems in order to create cultures that revolve around real-life humans that breathe, hurt, celebrate, struggle, and triumph.
