How to Earn Trust as a New UX Designer

three-legged-stool-Eng

As a UX designer, every time you start working for a new company, or a new team, you need to earn trust from your manager and peers, by answering the following questions:

  • What could you bring us as a UX designer?
  • Do you have knowledge or expertise in this field (that the product belongs to), and why are you capable of leading the design directions?
  • What are your work styles?

Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise. John Tukey
