The Future of Work?
THIS week's webinar "The Future of Work?" - Friday January 29nd 4:00PM MST
Our webinar this week is an introduction to a series of weekly seminars on "the future of work". Join us: share and network, discover and learn.
Work, think, create? In our pursuit of happiness, there are few activities that are as meaningful as what we refer to as our "work". In fact for many what we do - our work, our job, is what gives meaning to our lives. When it is gone we feel a profound life-changing loss - rejection! Unemployment insurance, a pension, even a guaranteed income, cannot replace the void. That having been said, imagine the angst, recall yours, when faced with the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" or how did you react when learning that your work was disappearing, relocated to China and/or displaced by technology. Consider - is work itself and the associated economies changing from working/muscle/effort to thinking/brain/know to creating/mind/imagine?
Last week we explored "A New Beginning?" expecting to consider how the pandemic, the "loss" of Trump and "win" of Biden, Brexit, and emerging technologies, are changing expectations. The discussion led quickly to insights on the creation of work and the rise of "entrepreneurship", and associated viewpoints on whether entrepreneurs are born or made, the ingredients for success, and emerging opportunities. Jacquie offered to assemble this week's webinar on "The Future of Work?". The question mark conveys our uncertainty about the future and even the meaning of work.

I invite you to share your perspective HERE Many are rushing into the future with extraordinary faith in technology for good. Others see technology as an existential threat to mankind. And yet others see an apocalypse and invoke a religious perspective that all of mankind will experience a revelation and with it salvation. Is the near future the beginning of a new beginning or ?
