This is week 4 of the Soft-Skills mini-series where Uncle Mikey (Michael Curtis) and I dive into the intangible skills that give designers an edge in the journey. Our focus today is on facilitation. Nearly every moment of my day is found in meetings, many of them which I am running or coordinating. Prior to a management role, I'd still say over half my day was in UX focused meetings. With that in mind, it's no wonder designers need to become masters of facilitation.
Over the next few weeks, listen along and ask yourself the hard questions. Figure out where it is you can make improvements. I bet we will talk about it. At the end of each episode, we will leave you with a challenge. Our hope is that after taking the challenge, you can report back on what you learned or experience. Feel free to drop us a line and share your story. Messages can be received on LinkedIn or Instagram, or via DM on the Designed Today slack channel. We hope to hear from ya.
