The skill every UXR should learn

The skill every UXR should learn

Spring is in full swing already! As days go longer and warmer, many things start to bloom. New conferences, events and ideas all over the place! So much going on this month!


I'm delighted to announce the launch of the From Finders to Builders Discord Community!

After months of toying with the idea, I decided to take the leap and get started with the first community for first UXRs and UXR teams-of-one! This is a place to get together, exchange tips, ideas, anecdotes and even vent!

Plus, this is the companion community for the F2B podcast so they will both be deeply interwined. Live episode recordings, events and more!

The 50 free tickets are gone, but you can still get your seat!

Facilitation: the skill every UXR should learn

Ever feel some projects simply get stuck? Yeap, been there too. That's why, on the latest episode of From Finders to Builders, I was pumped to share my story about how workshop facilitation totally changed my game.

Let me tell you, this facilitation thing wasn't just a secret weapon, it helped me immensely in the transition from product management to UX! It turns out, even a few basic facilitation skills can supercharge teamwork and unlock collaboration.

Workshops are crazy versatile, they can cover from kicking off projects to looking back on what worked (and what didn't!), to figuring out the big picture strategy. Workshops get everyone on the same page, fast, and make those "aha!" moments stick. Check out the whole episode here:

When you're the only UXR or your team is rather small, you must be deliberate when deciding your role for a study.

In this article, Dawn Ta explores how you should best use your UXR resources.
