Podcast 006: Geoff Colvin

With technology poised to eliminate millions of jobs in every imaginable industry, we’re left to wonder what kind of work will remain and what skills will be most highly valued in the future workplace.

To answer these serious questions, few people in the world today have a better grasp of what this future looks like than Fortune Magazine editor, Geoff Colvin. With uncommon access to the thinking of global CEOs, academics and economists, Colvin performed his own research before writing his highly acclaimed book, “Humans Are Underrated: What High Achievers Know The Brilliant Machines Never Will.” And if his title doesn’t make it entirely clear, Colvin is fully certain that human skills will hold the highest value in a world that’s rapidly being automated by artificial intelligence and robots.

“Ask employers which skills they’ll need in the next 5-10 years, Colvin writes, “and answers that come back do not include business acumen, analysis or P&L management — left brain thinking skills. Instead, the top priorities will be relationship building, teaming, co-creativity, brainstorming, cultural sensitivity and the ability to manage diverse employees — right brain activities.”

Whether you’re wondering what could happen to your own career, or how to help prepare your business or team for the technological tsunami heading our way, Geoff shares plenty of invaluable insights that will leave you well informed and fully prepared to start taking action. It also happens to be one truly delightful conversation you’re guaranteed to enjoy.

They build safety, share vulnerability and establish purpose.
