People in the field of user experience are taught that empathy for the end-user is the holy grail. We believe that, by studying your fellow project team members and identifying their needs, you can develop another type of empathy, one that may prove to be more important for business success.
We will explain the concept of communication styles, help you identify your own style and that of co-workers. By walking you through the extended user experience design process and introducing stereotypes of the people you will meet on the way, we will show you how to adapt your style to others, to ensure you will be heard during the process.

  • From Process to People• UX Process is more than user-centered design• UCD’s “empathy for the end-user” is not enough• We should develop empathy for all characters that live in the world of User Experience• For that, we need to learn to communicate with all kinds of people
  • Communication is influenced by
  • observable behavior ( verbal, vocal & visual clues)
  • The Social Style Model The Social Style Model is Trademark of the Tracom Group
  • The Social Style ModelDavid Merrill found that people display consistent observable behaviors,and that others consistently agree on words to describe each behavior. The Social Style Model is Trademark of the Tracom Group
  • What are Social Styles?• Behavioral patterns that others can observe• Based on the "outside" of a person (verbal, vocal, visual)• Social Styles do not try to interpret what the intentions are: the "inside" of a person (thoughts, character or personality assessment)
  • What can you learn fromSocial Styles?• Get to know your personal style & gain an understanding of how you are perceived by others• Learn about different styles & their behavior• Learn to optimize your communication & understand why people talk to us the way they do• Learn to not let your typical behavioral preferences lead to a failure in communication• Learn to appreciate the value of the different styles with their strengths & qualities

  • How to communicate with aSocializer• Show appreciation for what they have done• Be supportive of their ideas• Never ignore them• Be positive and show energy• Help them to stay on track
  • How to communicate with aDirector• Provide options and show benefits• Provide executive summary upfront• Be clear and precise• Don’t talk about personal topics• Get to the point fast, don’t irritate by being inefficient and indecisive
  • How to communicate with aThinker• Provide a lot of information for them to be able to discover patterns and factual relationships• Provide thoughtful arguments and facts• Give time to process• Provide plans with deadlines to set expectations• Inform early about potential changes• Dont misinterpret lack of shown enthusiasm with disinterest
  • No style is better than another
  • We all display some aspects of each of the Social Styles.But we have one dominant style.
