Design as a link to the future: Navigating a storm (?) of uncertainty

Have you wondered if Design Thinking is losing its shine? We believe that, on the contrary, it is being reborn. Over the years, it has made organizations worldwide re-think, question and improve the way they do things, which continues to contribute to promoting a culture of collaboration and innovation in our teams. Even more so in our current apocalyptic context: layoffs, political and environmental crises, and the arrival of new technologies.

In this practical workshop with the 2 Ale’s, we will:
– Team up to explore how our role as designers influences our leadership and the demands of the business
– We will present 2 real situations so that you can question, in a safe space, your actions and skills as designers facing the future

By the end of the workshop, you will have developed and reflected on key skills (such as empathetic emotional intelligence, the ability to trust, transparent and assertive communication, and having a future focus) that you must have to successfully function in a senior role, and start to be a radical optimist in your organization.

Action, reflection and execution. Who can stop you after this transformative experience?
