About The Experience Designers
A podcast about designing experiences for humans
We talk a lot about how to create a meaningful life and strong connections and relationships, to increase our quality of life, but what happens to our needs and preferences when they are pushed to their extreme? When we know we are about to die do we choose any differently? With Carina, we explore her observations of people’s last wishes in palliative care and how we can lead, plan and communicate in order to connect with others to create moments that matter - at any point in their life journey.
The experience of work and life have long been treated as two separate experiences, but what happens when we think about work the same way we think about life? With Aga we dive into what corporate cultures look like that make space for us to be human and what is needed for a workplace to send positive ripples into our lives.
Time to give up organizational charts, KPI’s, control and let go! Organize your company like a planetary system of circles. Let these circles self-organize and run the company. No hierarchy! Whilst your people play roles in these circles – your career doesn't go "up", it's about jumping through circles to constantly learn, contribute and grow.
Feedback has become a core component of work-life and the way we collaborate, but from a growth- and advancement-perspective it might not be hitting the mark. With Eva Hamboldt we explore how our brains react to feedback, why it might not be the best solution and how we could choose to do feedback instead.
We discuss the shifts and trends impacting the HR industry. The opportunities created both during and post COVID for the function itself. What prompted SAP to create a new HR model, how they've approached this redesign in order to add value to the organization in new ways.
Self-leadership has made a name for itself during the transition into hybrid work, and not always in the best way. With Mia and Malin we explore what self-leadership is and how it can be a tool for us to “bring our full selves to work”. And we talk about misconceptions around self-leadership - what it is NOT - and how we as leaders and co-workers to help each other out in being more authentic in our common workspaces.
We know the brain is made for survival, but are we good at using its potential to grow and change? With Maria, we lean in to explore how we can help our brains create new pathways and change both our own capabilities, self-awareness and even how we experience life.
With the current exploration and re-definition of work, a lot of deeply engrained concepts around hierarchy, collaboration and culture are up for question. Imran Rehman offers an angle of community and leadership that can help us create a true sense of diversity and belonging.

Fact or fiction. One thing is for sure. People won’t forget.
