Just what is the Future of Work about ? Is it about new technology, or is it about how we work with people? We’re seeing amazing new technologies: collaboration platforms, analytics, and deep learning.

Where Are You Headed? What's Your Narrative and Purpose?

John Hagel

In my last blog post , I explored the distinction between purpose and narrative in the context of institutions. I’m going to shift here to explore how these concepts operate at the level of the individual. There are some similarities, but there are also some differences. For those who haven't read my previous posts, let me start with some definitions. I’ve been exploring narrative for years, but I have a very specific meaning for the word.

As those of you who have read any of my posts will know, I have a firm belief that if we work out how to make the best use of the amazing communication technology we have at your fingertips, learn the skills of civil exchange, and work out how to use these skills to achieve productive collective effect, then we will be able to deal with the significant challenges we currently face. This is at a time when we watch the old, hierarchical, institutional world collapsing around us.

Dave Snowden

As many of us in the norther hemisphere are preparing to take a break during our summer, our friends in the southern hemisphere are working through their winter. Later in August I get the opportunity to quickly switch from summer to winter (well a NZ / Australian winter!) and visit colleagues and friends in Wellington and Melbourne. Our training programme does not break for too long regardless of season and we have a rich menu of training options available for the next two quarters.

Focus Feminists, Focus

Nine Shift

Third-wave feminists, those who like Gloria Steinem think boys should be raised like girls and girls like boys, are all out of focus. My brilliant co-author Julie Coates says the only thing women should be concerned about is gender pay equity in the workplace.

Last night I had a very different response to the film Dunkirk from many of my friends and I have enjoyed the resulting conversations about why.
