“At the time I needed a mentor I was unclear what I was looking for but I understood as a one-woman-design-team that I needed guidance. Dr Morrison unpacked the challenges and concerns I had and reaffirmed my value as a designer, helping me manage work dynamics, timelines and design debt.

“Dr Gyles Morrison is an absolutely great mentor, coach and excellent leader. My package of UX mentoring and coaching was very detailed and organized. I was really pleased with the quality of the sessions, as well as the pace, supplied content and good use of theories and practicals used to solve problems in my current workplace. I learnt a lot on this course, how to structure my work properly as a clinical UX designer, how to work within a team effectively and how to present my work. I also learn how clinical UX positively contributes to the lives of the patients and clinicians. The knowledge and skills from my sessions has been really invaluable and has prepared me to be an excellent clinical UX professional. I am so happy I chose to work with Dr Gyles and I will absolutely recommend his services for anyone who would like to improve and develop clinical UX skills.

Effective mentoring and coaching applies a similar approach to semi structured interviewing; the sessions have structure tied to a specific goal, but there is flexibility and a willingness to adapt in order to reach said goal.

Furthermore, a variety of exercise, frameworks and training materials are provided. This includes:

  • UX clerking for starting new project briefs and making an initial assessment
  • The 7 T’s for onboarding on to new projects, teams or organisations
  • Research auditing to support effective research planning
  • UX maturity assessments to identify opportunities for improvement and the specific strategies required to make that opportunity a reality.
  • Professional Development Planning, used to define a career trajectory and the steps that need to be taken.
  • Critique sessions where structured and constructive feedback is provided on ideas and work in progress

and much more
