Director of Research, Shoulder to Cry on, Wanderer
When was the last time you took a dare?
I try to push myself out of my comfort zone when I travel, especially culturally: can I be in a place where I don't speak the language or don’t know the customs? I like to force myself to do bigger, daring things.
How would you like to see the world evolve with technology?
I want to see technology enable active curiosity. Iterative process becomes part of curiosity
How do you stay positive?
I try not to carry things over from day to day, but to start from a clean slate so that I don’t carry the weight of things from the previous day. It’s important to let things go and start fresh when you can.
Activating Your Inner Listener
Listening is an essential part of becoming a designer, leader, partner, or communicator. Become a better listener by recognizing what type of listening you are employing: selective, active, or empathetic.
