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, Jeff will share practical ways in which individuals and leaders can reach their full potential and continue to add value in the future of work.
