295: Lisa Perrine—Clever, Creative Ways To Enhance And Amplify Workplace Communications

Learn a new way of thinking for new types of solutions

Have you ever really wanted to know how to think about a problem in a new way? Maybe you need to improve your company’s communications and conversations. Or your employees’ motivation and productivity. Perhaps a Design Thinker could help you step back and objectively observe what the problem is and how you could conceptualize different ways to resolve it. Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Lisa Perrine. We have known each other for quite some time, and I am endlessly amazed at what she brings to our audience. Please listen, learn and share!

Using Design Thinking to solve workplace problems in new ways

Lisa and her colleagues focus on the human elements of communication: the interplay between workplace culture and communication, how people experience media, and how individuals interact with technology. As an anthropologist, I am particularly interested in the ROI of Design Thinking, in part because Design Thinkers have embraced ethnographic research and bring different types of observational thinking into their designs, much like we do at SAMC in our work with clients. During my interview with Lisa, you will learn a great deal about:

  • Media Synchronicity for Virtual Meetings
  • Psychological Safety in Workplace Teams
  • The ROI of Design Thinking
