TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT IS LIKE AN ACCELERATING UNSTOPPABLE WAVE
Technology is developing faster and faster and it is not likely to slow down. This will have a tremendous impact on society, organizations and individuals. It is fundamentally changing how we work, live and interact. One can argue that technological development has been going on for all of humanity – so what’s new? Technological advancements used to take generations to change society, jobs and companies, but this time is shortening fast and you cannot expect to learn something once and then work with that for the rest of your life. The same goes for companies which will not thrive by only being innovative in the beginning.
“ROBOTS ARE TAKING OUR JOBS” OR “THERE HAS NEVER BEEN MORE OPPORTUNITIES THAN NOW”
There is a lot of discussions that AI will take all our jobs, and we are seeing many signs that this is happening across all different kinds of industries, from drivers to doctors and lawyers to accountants.
At the same time there has never, in the history of humankind, been as many opportunities out there as today . There is capital, easily accessible advanced technology and you can reach out to the whole world more efficiently than ever.
Independently of which scenario you believe in, you will need to continuously adopt to change to thrive and remain relevant as an individual and as an organization.
As an individual you need to become an active lifelong learner – just relying that your education will be enough to keep you employed for the rest of your career is naïve
As an organization, you will need to be innovative, use other's innovations and best practices to ensure you leverage the new emerging possibilities. Innovative ideas are born out of curiosity, learning new things and a bank of accumulated knowledge of the individuals in the organization. For this reason, RADICAL LEARNING needs to be the foundation of your culture.
RADICAL LEARNING NEEDS TO BE AN INTRINSIC PART OF THE CULTURE
As individuals and organizations we have been trained to focus on efficiency. This has been reinforced throughout the era of industrialization. Today focus on knowledge and learning needs to be a part of your organizational habits for companies and individuals to thrive in the 21st century.
Is your team engaged and have a clear “why” for going to work each day in your team?
How do you ensure you keep evolving based on facts, leverage best practices, new technology and ideas even those coming from outside your organization - and not opinions?
Which books, podcast, blogs are read, shared and discussed at your workplace to help you reach your “WHY”?
Honestly, does your organization learn from mistakes or does successful projects get more focus?
Is it OK to tell someone how they can improve in the organization, and are you humble enough to admit when you don’t know?
What is your habit to learn?
We help companies on their journey to creating a culture and habits that accelerate innovation and engagement. We do this through a framework including lectures, workshops, discussions with management teams, smaller groups and individual team members and leaders - tailored to your organization’s stage. It is about upgrading your organization’s HI (Human Intelligence).
