CM 182: Lisa Feldman Barrett On How Our Brains Work
I'll admit it. I'm a sucker for brain science. I love learning new things about how our brains work and how to get the most out of this amazing organ. That means I'm always scanning for my next book on the topic. And, when I find it, I'm usually placing an order before I've made it through the table of contents. With this week's guest, I barely glanced at her book's title before I clicked "buy." That's because the author is the incredible neuroscientist, Lisa Feldman Barrett. Last time she was on the show, we talked about her mind-blowing book, How Emotions are Made. I learned how her research has led to a complete rethinking of, well, how emotions are made. In this conversation, we talk about her newest book, Seven and a Half Lessons about the Brain. At first glance, you might think, what does this have to do with my work? The short answer is . . . everything. What you'll learn about your brain will change how you structure your day and, on an even bigger scale, how you interact with other people. This is a book to savor. It's enlightening. Insightful. And it's downright enjoyable. In fact, you may want to read it in bite-size chunks, like one chapter at a time, because it's a book you may not want to finish too quickly. It's just too good. Lisa Feldman Barrett is an award-winning Professor of Neuroscience at Northeastern University. She has appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. I'm thrilled to have her back on the show. One quick ask before the interview - if you enjoy the podcast, I'd be grateful if you'd take a moment to rate and review the show on iTunes or wherever you subscribe. The team works hard to produce the podcast - and to keep it commercial free -- and it means a lot for us to know that you enjoy it. Speaking of brain science - a positive rating or review gives us the dopamine hits we need to keep on going.

The Chris Voss Show Podcast – The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You: Follow Your Own Path, Discover Your Own Journey by Simone Knego
The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You: Follow Your Own Path, Discover Your Own Journey by Simone Knego Do you wake up every day feeling like you're going through the motions, that the hundreds of choices you make have almost no impact on the people around you? Many motivational books will tell you that in order to better the world, you must first better yourself. But you really only need to change the way you see yourself and the world around you will change. What you do every day matters and inspires others. By sharing your story, you can motivate and encourage those around you--and in doing so, change the world. Everyone has a story, and in The Extraordinary UnOrdinary You, Simone Knego takes you inside her unique journey and the extraordinary moments which have shaped her life and defined her mission. Sharing the lessons she's learned from life's ups, downs, and laugh-out-loud moments, you'll be inspired to discover your own journey, and to go out into the world and be the good. The world is waiting for the Extraordinary UnOrdinary You, and you already have everything you need to get started, simply by being you. About Simone Knego A former CPA, turned equestrian entrepreneur, turned teacher who's the mother of 6 -- 3 adopted from S. Korea & Ethiopia -- Simone Knego has the uncanny ability to both motivate and inspire others to be the good in the world. An international leader and keynote speaker who recently scaled Mount Kilamanjaro -- a dormant volcano in Tanzania, it's the highest mountain in Africa -- she believes that changing the way you see yourself can help the world around you change. In her new bestselling book, Simone shares her real-world and highly actionable insights via stories of her own life's both humorous and moving everyday moments -- and how others can similarly discover they too are Unordinary...in the best possible way.

Micro Course: How to Conduct Listening Sessions with Indi Young — DT101 E64
In this episode, Indi Young joins me to deliver a micro-course on listening sessions. I’m experimenting with new ways to learn on the podcast. Listeners will learn from Indi as we talk about listening sessions, what they are, how to do them, why they matter, and how to get the most out of them. Let me know what you think of the micro-course format, and if I should do more of them. Cheers, Dawan, Your Design Thinking 101 Podcast Host Listen to learn more about: * What listening sessions are and why they matter * How to structure a good listening session * Getting the most out of listening sessions * The two questions that are always asked during a listening session * Do’s and Don’ts of listening sessions Our Guest’s Bio Indi Young is a researcher who coaches, writes, and teaches about inclusive product strategy. Her work is rooted in the problem space where the focus is on people, not users. Indi pioneered opportunity, maps, mental model diagrams, and thinking styles. She was one of the founders of Adaptive Path, the pioneering user experience agency. Her way of approaching the problem allows teams to truly pay attention to people without letting cognitive bias and assumptions creep in. She has written two books, Practical Empathy, and Mental Models, and is working on a third, Assumptions Aside, which will cover thinking styles. Indi builds knowledge and community via a series of online advanced courses about design research and the importance of pushing the boundaries of your perspective. Show Highlights [02:54] Listening is different from interviewing. [03:22] Listening is qualitative research. [04:35] Indi describes the knowledge creation / data collection template she uses. [05:05] Problem spaces and solution spaces. [06:57] In the solution space, much of the research is either generative or evaluative. [08:07] In the problem space, the research is neither generative nor evaluative. [08:54] The problem space is interested in the person and how they achieve their purpose. [09:19] A listening session asks the person what they were thinking as they were achieving their purpose. [11:25] Organizations are often only concerned with solution spaces; problem spaces tend to get ignored. [12:03] Why study problem spaces? [12:56] One solution does not fit all – there is no such thing as an “average user.” [13:50] Thinking styles vs. personas, and designing for archetypes. [15:03] An example from work Indi did for the University of Buffalo. [15:33] The benefits of using thinking styles over personas. [16:25] The bias problem in research. [17:10] Listening sessions must be framed by a purpose, and must have depth. [17:39] Surface vs. depth. [18:59] Depth is how we develop cognitive empathy with people. [19:34] The good stuff in a listening session is the inner thinking, the emotional reactions. [21:13] Indi describes the Mental Model Diagram. [23:27] Listening sessions start with a germinal question. [24:28] Listening sessions are audio-only. [26:49] The challenges that can come up in listening sessions. [28:47] The structure of a listening session. [30:27] Indi shares snippets of some listening sessions as examples of how to begin a listening session. [34:37] How Indi works with the results of a listening session. [35:14] Techniques used during listening sessions. [36:13] Listening session examples demonstrating techniques Listeners can use to build trust and rapport with the Speaker. [38:05] The importance of silence. [41:29] Listening session examples demonstrating how to encourage Speakers to open up and share their inner thoughts and emotions. [45:38] Indi talks about micro-reflections and shares some examples from listening sessions. [49:57] Why Indi likes the word “because.” [50:43] Listening session examples where the Listeners used time and place to help the Speakers dig deeper. [Note from Indi at 51:44] - “I forgot to explain that the grocery store example was because the Speaker got flustered and forgot her restaurant experiences. The Listener took her back to the grocery store she had mentioned so that the Speaker could be in familiar territory and relax. After that she remembered some more of her restaurant experiences.” [55:34] Indi talks about ways to simply encourage Speakers to continue talking. [57:12] Things not to do during listening sessions. [57:18] Avoid asking leading questions. [58:37] Avoid asking surface level questions. [1:01:08] Avoid conjecture. [1:01:51] Examples of conjecture from Indi’s listening sessions. [1:08:32] Avoiding complex reflection. [1:10:33] Indi talks about normal things that can occur during listening sessions. [1:12:13] Discovering your own verbal habits when reviewing your listening sessions. [1:13:35] Winding down listening sessions, and some examples of that from Indi. [1:13:53] The one closing question you should always ask. [1:16:40] Indi offers advice to those wanting to improve their listening skills and perhaps try using listening sessions. [1:19:44] Indi talks about some of the courses she offers. Links Here are the diagrams and transcripts we discuss in the episode.

Netflix's Steve Johnson and Rochelle King: Making great stories accessible
If you’re anything like us, you’ve been watching more than your fair share of Netflix this past year. And with such great original content, from The Queen’s Gambit to more obscure shows like Midnight Diner, we were curious what it takes from a product design perspective to create and deliver these shows to a massive audience, in a way that’s accessible not only to audiences here in the US, but all around the world. So we sat down to chat with Steve Johnson, Vice President of Design, and Rochelle King, Vice President of Creative Production at Netflix, to talk about how they approach inclusive design for a global audience, how they use a data-informed rather than data-driven product strategy, and why looking for passion rather than for credentials might be the key to your next great hire. This is the last episode of Season Five of the Design Better Podcast. But don’t worry, Season Six is just around the corner, where we’ll be sharing interviews with guests like bestselling author Dan Pink, who will teach us how to use persuasion to be better at our jobs, and Professor Sara Seager, an astrophysicist and planetary scientist whose research on exoplanets can shed light on how we can be better collaborators here on Earth. Also, in-between seasons we’re going to do a bonus Q&A show, where you’ll have a chance to record your questions about design, creativity, leadership, or any of the topics we cover here on the show and we’ll do our best to answer them. Just head over to http://dbtr.co/ama and fill out the short survey there to submit your question. Takeaways: * Learn about the ROI for inclusive design * Hear how the design team at Netflix approaches the power dynamics between product and design * Understand how to prioritize and say no to work that won’t impact the business

Throughout, I share stories and examples of how travel has helped me gain a broader perspective, taught me valuable lessons, and expanded my mind (along with my network of friends). TOPICS DISCUSSED/WHAT YOU’LL LEARN: * How travel unlocks and stimulates your senses * Why you become more present and mindful when experiencing a new place * Endless options for fun + Seeing every part of life as an adventure * Increasing your drive to meet new people and to meet people of diverse cultures * The inevitable personal growth and development you go through while traveling * Travel as the best form of education * How living abroad boosts confidence and resilience * Developing a keen eye for BS and scams (aka becoming street smart) * Having a deeper connection to humanity and planet Earth + The impacts of climate change * Becoming aware of how history repeats itself * More quality, memorable time with friends and family * The benefits of living and studying abroad when applying for a job + Integrating travel experience with your work * Opportunities for sharing your knowledge and stories with other people * Less stuff = more happiness!
