We cover topics like leadership by example, dealing with organizational politics, and managing team (members’) performance. Enjoy! 🙏🏼

In some ways, this is an exciting time to be alive. Joost and Brian speak with Reinout Bosman, trainer, speaker, and opera tenor currently living in Florence, Italy. Together, we explore the idea that crisis brings change – we can either shut down or step up and follow new opportunities.

 

We discuss best practices for conducting classes or workshops online, social rituals like ‘Whatsapperitivo’ to stay in touch with friends, and how we can enrich our lives by confronting our confining convictions. Our journey passes along purpose, ventures into vulnerability, and careens around courage, creativity, connection, and love. 🙏🏼❤️

Health insurers, like a.s.r. Vitality, are using data from wearables like Fitbit and Apple Watch to give healthier people discounts. This makes a lot of sense: if you’re healthier, you’re less likely to need medical care, which means an insurance company is less likely to have to pay medical bills.

But what could go wrong? In this episode, Joost talks about his life with a.s.r. Vitality and discusses with Brian the benefits and potential pitfalls with gamified health. We discuss privacy, ethical design, and behavior change, pondering the influence of economics on service design & how we can help systems like these work the way we intend them to.

Key Topics

Health, insurance, digital personhood, data ethics, consent, behavior change, behavioral design, Agile development, wearables, mobile apps, privacy, security, information design

In this episode Brian and Joost talk about why empathy is important, how empathy can be applied in design and how it would work in a workshop format. In October 2019, Joost is hosting a workshop at Design Thinking Conference, so they’ve taken an ‘Open Kitchen’ approach and used this podcast to lay the foundation of that workshop.

Brian is our Empathic Design Guru, and takes us on a deep dive in this episode. Tune in to hear how that goes and learn the truths of empathy in design. For example, did you know there is more than 1 type of empathy?

In this episode Brian, Joost, and Tom share their recent life lessons. Things they’ve taken to heart and have enriched themselves with. For example, are you aware of the Netherlands’ ranking when it comes to sustainability? We are pretty low on the list, but apparently there are some (good) reasons that explain that ranking a bit better than you would assume initially. That’s one of Joost’s recent lessons learned: there is always another perspective to be heard and learned from. Brian tells us how dealing with assumptions makes him a better communicator and professional, and Tom shares how he’s following his heart more closely now.

We also talk about a lot of books! Tune in to find out if they are the type of book for you.
