The knowledge of craft and processes does little to help in the day-to-day relationship with teams and clients. That's because the actual practical skills are just part of the game: there are competences that go beyond that: soft skills, sensibility, empathy, relational abilities, proactivity, etc. All of these are rarely highlighted or taught, and even less often they are used in specific tasks such as team growth or hiring.
The Hybrid Traits is an effective model to frame these additional skills, allowing us to focus on them and embed them in our professional life. It's not easy however, because everything starts from the individual's desire to practice introspection.

This is an excerpt from the talk and workshop done at UXHK 2015.
