Are You Designing Your Professional Relationships?

I would like to introduce Alla Zollers, a UX consultant with 8 years of experience helping companies improve their entire design process. Alla will be sharing exercises, scripts, and questions that you can use to:

  • Identify your core values so that you are able to communicate your needs to others and request the same in return
  • Vet the next job or project to make sure that its the right fit for you
  • Design a relationship with every person on your team – from manager to co-worker – to ensure that you are empowered to do your job and set yourself up for success.


The event will be hosted at RightScale. Pizza will be provided. Please review this map for directions and parking instructions.

    Explicitly designing the relationship at the beginning of a project saves time, energy and money. Fantastic presentation Alla!

    Thanks Alla, you were great! Very nice techniques to identify how we are thinking, how to shift into more creative and productive thinking, and my favorite (for vetting clients): "What is your vision for my role?"

    Will definitely "BE" doing the Positive Intelligence assessments soon!

    Meetups are about connecting with people, and this meetup was all about how to take initiative to connect with the things that really matter most in your professional relationships.
    Well done!

    This should be interesting. An old friend (he made it to 95 years) lived by the motto, "Never say 'No' to an invitation".
