Closing Speaker

Got Leadership? Principles and examples of authentic UX leadership

Applying the lessons of leadership can be challenging. There is no simple formula and there are many potential pitfalls. For UX practitioners, the challenge of leadership is complicated by factors such as institutional culture, situational complexities, and organizational position. To provide a framework to address these challenges I’ll discuss someof principles of the heroic leadership and contrast heroic leadership with inauthentic, self-centered leadership. I’ll also illustrate these principles by examples from leaders I have worked with. My goal will be to provide you with both a framework for thinking about leadership and some practical guidance that you can apply to the choices you face in your work and career.
