Emptying Ourselves
self

Each day many of us fill our spare moments checking our phones, replying emails, catching up on social media updates or playing some mobile game. We tend to spend too much time occupied with tasks at hand and distracted by thoughts. However, to bring about meaningful changes, we have to seek transformation from within ourselves and that is a journey that starts from the realisation that we are empty of any inherent nature.

Individuals starting their careers in this profession often reach a plateau in their professional development and end up doing similar or routine things over a period of time, thus impacting their career development.

The framework in the workshop will help participants to self-reflect and introspect. It will focus on helping them understand their strengths, areas of development, and their strengths they would like to leverage. This sets participants up for success in their professional roles.

The second aspect of the workshop will cover how different types of organizations will support the individual to achieve their goals.They will come up with a plan about how to structure their User Experience teams or business units in the overall organizational structure.

Improv.e UX: Improve Your Soft Skills with Improv
self

As UX practitioners, we need to cultivate a number of soft skills on a daily basis. Amongst others: empathy and deep listening, the ability to work effectively within a group, lateral thinking and storytelling.

In improv theatre, actors need to manage the unexpected, working together to create a show without a script. The techniques they use are very valuable for tackling some of the skills we need to improve.

During the workshop, you will learn by doing, improving while experimenting through games and practical exercises.
