This week’s combination of resources and articles offers insights and practical resources to help you equip yourself with the skills required in these disruptive times, as well as for the Future of Work.


Gartner’s Future of Work Trends.

If you didn’t see Gartner’s list of 9 key trends that are shaping work right now, it’s worth reading this summary: 9 Future of Work Trends for 2024 | Gartner.

Each of the trends is critical to navigating talent challenges and aligns with one of four themes: managing the shift in the employee value proposition (EVP), augmenting critical skills for managers, evolving career assumptions, and experimenting with and implementing artificial intelligence.


7 Overlooked Trends that Could Transform Your Business.

In the modern business landscape, the future isn’t just a horizon to approach, it’s a canvas to co-create. And one of the things you can do as a futurist is to look for the big, disruptive forces that are somewhere on the horizon and are going to change everything.

10 Ways to Get Started in AI — Without Being Technical by Jodie Cook from Forbes.

The advances in technology mean that every aspect of business is now digital in some way, but that doesn’t mean that technology will replace people.

With artificial intelligence, most people are starting to feel like they are being left behind. So many early adopters make a lot of noise about AI, which creates one of three responses:

1. It gets those enthusiastic about technology excited to explore.
2. It gets those who are skeptical to dig in their heels and proclaim “fad!” or “gimmick!”
3. It makes the undecided feel overwhelmed and wonder if there’s any point in getting involved.

Regardless of where you are on this scale, the truth is that the future is going to be more bionic. AI will not necessarily replace people in the job market, but people using AI will most certainly replace those not using AI. Read more in this article here.


Being an explorer leader – Dean van Leeuwen.

Building a bionic organisation is about giving your workforce superhuman capabilities and using technology to augment and empower your workforce. We’re living in a transformative age – through a moment in time where we’ve never been before. We don’t know everything that’s going to happen, which is why it’s so important to build experimentation and exploration into the culture of our organisations.

Watch Dean’s podcast snippet here.
