Thinking about leadership and how the role of leaders and how we define them is changing. As Seth mentions, no longer are you required to be charismatic or charming. Rather, he suggests, that you become a leader and the charisma follows. I find this empowering and resonating with the role of a user experience designer; your job is to lead change, or at least provide all the tools and persuasion to get people moving in the right direction, towards an impactful change. You need not fit the typical mental model of a “leader”, but rather can lead by being informational and committed to honest research. Leading a non-threatening disruption, driven by well-developed insights rather than hot-headedness.
