There is no playbook: Leader as coach during challenging times

Managing others is hard work. If you struggle at times to engage effectively with your direct reports, or if you want to amplify your ability to support them on their professional journey, taking a coaching approach can help. Coaching is a mutually empowered and collaborative way to guide individual growth. It is fundamentally discovery-driven, not expertise-driven, so “there is no playbook”.

Session participants will gain an understanding of how coaching differs from mentoring or advising and explore a set of basic coaching tools for improving communications, results, and accountability with their direct reports. They may also discover that these very skills can also improve engagement with peers and clients.

Warming the User Experience: Lessons from America’s first and most radical human-centered designers

The Shakers exemplified both the principles and the courage to practice design in a manner that looked after the human experience of life on earth. We’ll look behind the famous Shaker objects that inspired Dieter Rams and Jonathan Ives to appreciate the Shakers’ most important contribution to the American design canon; a transcendent user experience (ZX) warmed by principles of connectivity that we humans need in order to thrive. This talk is intended to remind designers who shape our experiences today that without this warmth the modern world grows cold around us.

One of the benefits of the Rosenfeld Community is finding other like-minded UXers with similar interests. In the Rosenfeld Community, we have interest groups that take place via Slack. These groups allow Community members to gather together and converse around one topic and are often the point of inception for many of our community videoconference calls. View our current interest groups below. Itching to start a new one? Let us know.
