Grow & Connect

Have you ever noticed how valuable it is to hear the perspective of someone who is not your colleague, friend or partner? To talk with someone you do not know but who has relevant experience and ideas to share?

“Sometimes a fresh perspective is all you need to see your challenges in a new light.”

What is the story behind Grow & Connect? 

In previous leadership roles I often encountered unknown territory where there were loads of things to figure out. Being the only research leader inside the company made me seek inspiration from outside. 

Talking to other research leaders helped tremendously, but making these connections was not always easy. Asking for someone’s help, time and attention is not easy. Even if we all have something to gain from asking and giving advice. Right?

This is why I started hosting conversations with user researchers from around the world. We meet in small groups and discuss the aspects of our work that we find challenging. Participants make new connections and work on their personal development together. This initiative is called ‘Grow & Connect’.
