A Socio-Cybernetic Model for Designer Leadership in the User Experience Community

Amazing presentation from Will EvensA Socio-Cybernetic Model for Designer Leadership in the User Experience Community

Here are some of the highlights:

What traits does an UX Leader need to succeed?

  • A great leader possesses vision.
  • Determination in the face of fear
  • Strong Emotional Intelligence
  • UX Leaders must understand and practice critique
  • Be able to listen effectively.
  • Realize that many great designers are freaks
  • Leadership is a dance, not a fight.
  • Balance Passion with Reason

Questions to ask yourself:

  • Personal SWOT. What are my personal Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats?
  • What additional domains must I learn?
  • What character flows stand in my way?
  • What aspects of Emotion Intelligence do I lack?

Four things you should focus on:

  • How to re-frame difficult problem spaces
  • How to articulate your passion
  • How to inspire a team of creatives
  • How to communicate effectively

Treat your career or your role in an organization as the problem space.

Stay focused on the vision.
