Episode 15 – Aga Szóstek
Listen to our sparkling new episode of the #21for21 podcast 🚀 🌏 with Aga Szóstek, strategic designer, author of The Umami Strategy and co-host of the podcast The Next Wave.
Aga talks with Marco and Carola about transformation, going beyond human centeredness and the umami strategy.
- 🎤 Instead of teaching others about transformation we should teach them the skills to keep on changing.
🎤 A transformation in itself is a process with a consequence, there is a continuation after.
🎤 Is human-centered a correct way of thinking? And I even think, perhaps there should not even be a center?
🎤 We have to keep asking ourselves “what does it taste like?” We have to discover the ‘umami’ strategy.
🎤 Dear Future, I am ready to follow your guidance into helping the world, not only survive, but thrive!
