Episode 044 • 48 min
How can futures thinking be used as a tool to change today?
In this episode, Sam chats with Nedret Sahin, a Senior Experience Designer at Mad*Pow, on the way that some human problems can be addressed by design thinking. They are joined by Liz Possee Corthell, an Experience Strategist at Mad*Pow, to discuss futures thinking and how it can prevent burnout. Earlier in the pandemic, Nedret and Liz were faced with the question, “how do you safely bring people back into their offices?” What they uncovered were the tools to build personal resilience while working remotely. Together, they chat about the use of mental models, equity in design and the way burnout manifests.
