A Human’s Place in the Future of Work*
Voice-powered personal assistants. Suggestive searches. Driverless cars. These are just a few examples of how technology is already infiltrating and fundamentally changing our daily lives – and it’s just the beginning. Research suggests that automation and technological advances will impact every job and displace more than 800 million jobs by 2030. What does this mean for us? What will our “role” as humans be at work in the age of automation? This session will focus on the increasing importance of understanding and appreciating human dynamics – the inner differences in people that affect how we interact with each other, leverage technology, learn, communicate, process information and experiences, and much more. In this keynote, Brett will share practical ways in which individuals and leaders can reach their full potential and continue to add value in the future of work.

Cornerstone Client Panel
Listen to the stories of Cornerstone clients in multiple industries as they share their experiences and best practices learned while utilizing various products.

Adam Savage Video - TED Talk on Curiosity + Cornerstone-led TED Talks on “The Human Problems of the Day.” Topics include:

  • Agility & Productivity
    Agile ways of working are not just for technology anymore. This concept and competency is transforming how organizations hire, develop and manage their workforce. Over 90% of HR managers in 2018 say they are adopting agile talent strategies. But what exactly does this mean for the organization, for managers, for HR, for teams and for individuals? Could agility have a negative side too? In this session and discussion we will explore the connection between agility and various outcomes and both the benefits and risks this emerging concept can have throughout your organization.
  • Resilience/Adaptability
    As we all know, the 4th Industrial Revolution is seemingly changing everything required to succeed in the New Economy. So what do companies need and what capabilities and skills do their workers need to succeed? Should we be “Gumby” or “Optimus Prime”?! Gumby’s resilient – a bendy little guy – or Optimus – adapts to almost any situation. Maybe it’s not an “or”, but, rather, an “and” situation. Well explore some the of the challenges and work towards how individual workers can prepare themselves to be GOptimus Prime.
  • Diversity and Inclusion
    Diversity and inclusion have become a hot button for most organizations. This is in part driven by not only the risks but also the huge benefits, having a diverse workforce and inclusive culture can have. According to McKinsey research; companies that are more gender diverse are 21% more likely to outperform others, and those who are ethnically diverse are 33% more likely to outperform others. Even with these benefits organizations still, struggle to understand and implement effective solutions. In this session, we will challenge the status quo, and discuss how we build a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
