How would you define HX and why it is important to your life’s work?
To me, HX is about recognizing and prioritizing the impact humans have on one another’s successes. My life’s work has focused on helping people understand people in order to achieve their personal and professional goals. Logos don’t sell services. Titles don’t lead initiatives. Project plans don’t inspire change. Resumes don’t get you hired. People do these things. And the most successful of them do it by understanding how to create human experiences that align with other people’s hearts, minds, interests and desires.
