I’m not out to prove to anyone that I’m right and they are wrong. I want people to discuss ideas and consider possibilities. That is the new perspective I’ve adopted on being creative, today.
The future has nothing to do with tech but people, critical thought and leadership. I gave a talk 8 years ago in Montréal where I suggested that the future for #UX would fall into five areas, if we were to see progress.
In 2018 I started another podcast; which I have since retired. I wanted to discuss solving problems, rather than simply fixing issues. One of the first episodes I launched was a discussion with the Amazon UK best selling author Gethin Nadin and his book “A World of Good – Lessons from Around the World in Improving Employee Experience”.

What if we considered disciplines like sociology to bridge the divide between customer experience and user experience? Imagine a space where the troubles of the customer are aligned with the issues facing users. Charles Wright Mills did just that … in 1959.
Considering an artists’ perspective on how to forget the name of the product we’re working on may help teams consider the importance of innovation. Especially in a world seemingly obsessed with simply getting to a state of “good enough” and “done”.
Raising confidence can be accomplished in many ways. I suggest we start by understanding that which sparks curiosity in employees.
What’s the level of psychological ownership in your organization today? What if the level of psychological ownership turns out not to be high enough to move ahead? In this story I share how I applied this theory in sharing research results with senior leaders, managers, and teams.
The information age has created somewhat of a paradox. While the world has access to the wisdom of several ages, we continue to work from a position of professional and individual absolutes.
In a world that argues for best practices and processes within each profession, what if we considered the actual construct Aristotle proposed nearly 2400 years ago? The whole is not the same as the sum of its parts.
In 2018 the Nobel Prizer winner in Economics was Paul Romer. His “New Growth” theory suggests that we need more ideas as the world’s population continues to decrease.
