The world of work is changing at an alarming rate and will continue to do so into the future.
The type of work people do and how they do it is constantly changing. One of the emerging “hot topics” is that of how computers, machines, machine learning, robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality are going to replace humans and take over the world. Many reports paint doomsday scenarios of the future.
However, many new opportunities are opening up and new directions are possible for everyone to consider. Leaders will need to respond to these changes by re-tooling and re-configuring their skills set. To embrace these opportunities leaders will need to face their fears and be open to new possibilities
Leaders will have to be Curious – they will have to develop their curiosity. To seize opportunities, to create and innovate in a world where leaders may fear uncertainty, ambiguity and competing with machines, Curiosity becomes a critical skill for the future. Curiosity is something everyone has to some degree and it can be fostered and nurtured.
