There are many great books about the design process, tools and methods. One missing aspect, almost in an ironic twist, is what it takes to be the person who is actually doing the designing. This Human is about that person—you.
If you are curious, open-minded and are seeking to become masterful in your craft of leading and designing meaningful change, this book will empower you to maximise the impact of your work.
This Human is about self leadership. It's about how to make sense of your observations in a way that isn’t biased by your own world views. About how to deal with complex, intangible situations in ways that are easy to make sense of and communicate. This Human is about how to learn more about yourself and how to be successful in your leadership or design practice—to grasp all that is going on inside you to positively influence your work.
This Human sets out a comprehensive framework of mindsets, tools, competencies and practices that Melis has developed, implemented and proven as significant enablers of change within great leaders and designers. With insights from her own leadership in corporations and her own design firm, plus proven tools from her executive coaching practice, This Human offers a solid foundation for your practice that you can return to time and time again.
You can get your copy of This Human from all sorts of places globally. Please let me know if you can't get one in your part of the world.
