Learning to Unlearn - Operating from First Principles

Alvin Toffler said, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” The concept of unlearning and relearning has never been more relevant.

To put it simply, what got you here, won’t get you there. By continuously challenging your own best thinking and finding new ways of doing things, you can make smarter decisions and navigate uncharted territories.

Most innovators use first principles thinking to break the situation down to the fundamentals. It helps in bypassing various obstacles and creating a more effective solution. Are your people equipped with the necessary skills to learn, unlearn and relearn? Do you have a culture that inspires your people to operate from the first principles?

Distributed Leadership and the Future of Work

If you look carefully at the current organizational mix, you will see an exciting emerging trend. Most companies now have at least three different generations in their employee mix. It is interesting because these generations look at management principles and leadership quite differently.

So, the question is, with such a wide mix of talent, ideologies, thinking, and operating styles, how do you ensure high-speed innovation?

Dealing with uncertainty demands diversity and courage in teams. You need people bringing different perspectives and showing strong bias for action. Decision-making points are the major bottlenecks. They impede agility. If your business fails to remove these bottlenecks quickly and efficiently, survival could be a challenge soon.

Distributed leadership fundamentally differs from its traditional counterpart by focusing on collaboration and resource sharing versus resource allocation or distribution. It is interactive and peer-to-peer versus being siloed. Therefore, it can offer adequate checks and balances for decision-making. Distributed leadership relies on people who lead with a definite purpose, intent, and knowledge. This new leadership model has immense potential to improve business agility and help build a culture of diversity.

Technology Ethics - Making Tech Responsible Again

In this technology-centric world, tech-ethics has a vital role in our sustainability and security. From sustainability concerns to personal data and metadata issues, this keynote explores how to move from information asymmetry and vulnerability to information symmetry and safety.

Technology can be a force for good. But we need more people with the right mindset for using it.

Guidelines do not address the root causes of issues that are the results of AI. We have several ways to make AI ethics practical. There is an easy way, and there is the right way. The government and policy route seems more comfortable, but it is lengthy, less potent, and less practical. Businesses taking ownership seems more plausible, but ultimately, creators and teams will have to drive the change.

Shifting from Customers’ Problems to Customers’ Intents

We all have heard amazing customer experience stories from the past, and it’s a good thing. But how do you design better future stories by being intentional? How can you create a better future customer experience instead of recreating the same from a good past?

Innovation is less about selling and more about solving. When innovating, you do not want to be blinded by customers’ problems. Instead, you want something better and bigger that can give you solid leverage to innovate better and use that innovation to get to or maintain your market-leading position.

If you want to create your customers’ journey, you do not need to focus on their problems. Instead, you need to focus on their intents. Invest in positive intentions, take positive actions and be bold and create positive experience patterns.

Humanizing Work – Stepping Into the Human Age

Over the past years, work focus has moved from process and efficiency (industrial age) to technology and disruption (digital age) to purpose, meaning, and belonging (human age).

Although organizations have started to embrace ideas such as servant leadership, empathy, diversity, and work-life balance, many are still far behind in their attempts to humanize work. The world has changed, and so has our workforce. The focus now is on making work more fit for our people and our people more capable of prospering in continuously changing environments.

Step into the human age, where we’ll be talking about servant leadership, empathy, resilience, remote work, culture, education, new skills, curiosity, creativity, new work structures, and how technology can help us serve new needs.

The future belongs to those with a different kind of mindset and different skills than ever before. This keynote will expose you to a provocative and crucial new way of thinking about a future that’s already here.
