The Future of Work is Learning

The Future of Work is learning – what does that mean?

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’m all about staying relevant and keeping up with the ever-changing world of the way in which we work and live.

The thing is, those changes are coming at us fast and many of the trends we see happening in the future of work are already here.

Robots and AI are already being used to automate and streamline jobs, and it’s predicated by the OECD that 14-30% of jobs as we know them will not even exist in the next 5 years.

So it’s more important than ever that we figure out how to ramp up our skills, particularly our uniquely human-centered skills, to stay relevant and be irreplaceable!

The good news is around 70% of new jobs will be created, most of which we can’t even predict yet. Crazy right?

That means by continuing to learn new skills and gain more experience, we have more chance of thriving in the future of work, rather than just surviving.

On today’s episode of Untapped, I’m sharing a recording of the talk I gave at an Inspire Group, an online learning and leadership company.

The purpose of this event was to inform our clients about what’s about to head their way and what they need to start thinking about when it comes to learning solutions for the future.

It was also a great way to showcase all the trends that are coming up and how the Future of Work IS learning.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What the Future of Work actually is
  • How automation can and will benefit us
  • How we can collaborate effectively with the robots
  • What changes and trends have already started to happen

How to Tap Into the Future of Work

Imagine the future of work, what do you see? And more importantly how do you want to show up in it?

The way in which we work and the type of work we will be doing in the next few years is already shifting right before our eyes, and I personally see more opportunity than ever.

But a lot of people are scared and that’s because the workplace of tomorrow is an uncertain place.

We live in a rapidly changing world, and design innovations such as artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and big data are rapidly changing the fundamental nature of how we live and work.

What’s more these technologies are evolving at an exponential rate  – and as more jobs and work gets automated, you can see why there’s a fear of being replaced by robots!

Actually that is going to happen with some work, especially around data, that is expected to be more machine-powered.

But there will also be a proliferation of new work and jobs created that will require human skills in areas like problem solving, communication, listening, interpretation and design.

One thing is for sure, it’s becoming critical to understand how this future of work movement is going to impact you, your profession or business and understand how to design a secure future amidst this disruption.

What can you get paid to do and be, what skills will you need to learn and master to ensure you remain relevant and in demand for the foreseeable future?

The future of work is us – people.

We think creatively, we use our emotional intelligence, we teach, communicate, value judgements and share wisdom. We must reconsider how jobs are designed and work to adapt and learn for future growth.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • What exactly is the future of work?
  • How is it going to impact you and what can you do to tap into it?
  • The new culture needed to future proof your business or career*
  • A great tool to figure out where your interests and competencies lie
  • How to turn yourself into a LifeLong Learning Lab to remain relevant
