the future of work and working

Work will change more in the next 10 years, than anything we have seen before. 

15-70% of computer-based work can now be automated, and in 5 years, 44% of all skills across industries will be irrelevant, according to the World Economic Forum.

AI is set to redefine the value of knowledge work and revolutionize our ways of working in record time. Today, AI already has "a 1000 x more general knowledge than a human" professor Geoffrey Hinton elaborates - and this is the starting point, so what does this mean for knowledge work, our businesses, and how we navigate this transition in the next few years?

Core topics:

  • Generative AI and the new skillset: AI will change what we value as work - and which skills are on the rise and in demand. Here we dive into the skills on the rise and discuss how AI will impact daily work tasks as well as job functions. We will establish a discussion about automation of work and which tasks and skills that will be replaced, co-produced and what work of higher value and greater meaning this will open up for.  

  • Digital work cultures: Today work is characterized by constant distractions, multitasking and task switching, that makes it impossible for us to engage in deep thinking, learning, and innovation - the top skills of the AI era. We are loosing up to 40% of our daily productivity when we work in this way according to Professor Cal Newport - and besides impacting our brains negatively and increasing stress - we are at risk for not staying relevant, if we don´t rethink how we work and utilise our highest thinking.

  • Strategies for Redesigning Work: What are the states of mind where you are 700% more creative, 500% better at solving complex problems and where your learning is up by 490%? We will look into practical strategies that unlocks higher cognitive function and makes your work future-proof. You will have the Science, the methods and the tools to start redesigning work tomorrow. They include corporate strategies, team efforts and individual training for optimal performance.

  • Want to add a deepening in your session? Great! Let´s talk about these topics:  What is creativity from a brain standpoint? When are you most creative? Circadian Science and daily rhythms. Boosting your creative thinking though movement and exercise. The Science of rest and it´s impact on profoundly creative thinking. Digital cultures, distractions and attention span. Shallow vs deep work and the design of a workday. Work rhythms and rituals from the world's most innovative companies
