I spend much of my time inside big business. As a keynote speaker and coach for leaders I’m very familiar with the ways large organisations operate and the universal challenges that they face against a backdrop of a world changing faster than ever before.
For years I’ve been trying to help those organisations and their leaders to change. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they find it impossible. It’s always painful. Change hurts!
As part of my mission to understand why and how we change and where we might want to focus our attentions in order to create a better blend between work and the rest of life I wanted to talk to today’s guest.
Mark Williams is CMO at People First, an HR consultancy, with a special interest in the future of work. I’m very curious about how the workplace is changing and how we, as the workers, will need to change in order to adapt. In this conversation we talk about coming trends, what human qualities will be required in order to be employable in the future and how fundamentally we need to rethink work and the part business plays in the world in the light of such dramatic changes.
It’s a big topic and one people like Mark, and me, are grappling with. There are no guaranteed answers. But I think you’ll enjoy listening to this conversation and considering what it might mean for you, your colleagues and the next generation.
