What does the future want from us?

 

A thought provoking short film from Nic Askew of Soul Biographies. This short explores the “competencies” necessary for tomorrow’s workplace. Interesting if you have children and/or you plan to be in the workplace in the next 10 -15 years!

Build A Tower, Build A Team

The Marshmallow Challenge is a fun and instructive design exercise that encourages teams to experience simple but profound lessons in collaboration, innovation and creativity. In our experience of leading experiential management challenges, certain groups of corporate employees typically do better than others! These secrets can be found in Tom Wujec’s TED talk

Learning from dirty jobs

Are we following a diet of bad advice? has our collective consciousness been infected by poor wisdom which we follow blindly, such as ‘work smart not hard’ and ‘follow your passion’! According to Mike Rowe, “People with dirty jobs are happier than you think. As a group, they’re the happiest people I know.” This TED talk is witty, compelling, uncomfortable, informative and thought provoking. If you haven’t seen it then do watch this. Thanks TED for recirculating it in 2013.

This prompted a revisit to Eddie Obeng’s fast paced and thought provoking TED talk and a watch of the World After Midnight, both of which are posted here for you:
