Renaissance 2.0: envisioning humanity in the future of work

4 EPISODES   |  LANGUAGE: ENGLISH

Series Overview

As algorithms, robots and other technologies are taking over the high-volume, high-routine tasks, we can finally focus on being human and adding value through the very things that make us human: making decisions in paradoxical situations, deriving creativity and innovation from absurdity, taking advantage of serendipity, caring for one another and our communities, gaining strength from our emotions, just to mention a few.

This shift cannot happen without intentionality, without the acknowledgement that we will be free of the 9 to 5 mental constraints and we will need to discover and engage in activities that add value following a different route.

We are currently learning to use technology as a tool. For some it becomes a right hand, even an additional brain, but as the change is rapid, for a lot of us using technology feels like writing with our left foot. What will the future bring? Will machines take over? Will we witness a merge between humans and technology? What will jobs look like? What should we be weary of and what should we look forward to?

Considering the scientific, intellectual, creative, economical & geographical developments, we are at the brink of a renaissance era, but we are the ones that need to make it happen.

The aim of this series is to take you on a journey through the different landscapes of the evolution of work. At the end, this journey will help each one of us answer the question: “How can I have a life and career which are relevant in the future of work but will also accomplish my needs of happiness-health-success?”

In November 2019, frustrated by the false directions given by the facilitator of a paid workshop, where we were discussing the skills needed in the future of work, I decided to put my knowledge and that of my guests in the service of the public - free of charge. “Skills for Mars", my video-podcast series was born from a frustration but also from a deep belief in education, collaboration and co-creation. Once a week, I host thought leaders, experts, academia and other amazing individuals and, step-by-step, we try to decipher the future and what success will look like for us as individuals, communities and society.

This C4 series aims to bring together the learnings so far, ask questions left unanswered and facilitate the further sharing of viewpoints and concrete ideas.

Who should join us

  • Those passionate in the future of work, debating ideas and sharing diverse perspectives.

 

  • Those whose careers are affected or will be affected by technological developments.

 

  • HR, Business Leaders, consultants who want to prepare their employees or clients for the Future of Work.

EPISODE 2

What’s in a job?

I ask myself and others questions like: What is work? Why is this “work” important to us? Will we keep working in the future where robots will provide for us? What will we do and why? The focus of the 2nd episode is to understand all this using research. This is an overview of the topics that will be discussed: 

  • Why is work important for us and why “sitting on the couch” and becoming useless is not an option. 
  • Sharing of studies/research.
  • What is “valuable” as far as work is concerned.
