The Accelerator Effect
Templosion describes the fact that the biggest of things and the biggest of events are happening in shorter and shorter periods of time. Everything from corporate lifespans to financial planning cycles to the way in which we communicate is becoming more abbreviated. And technological innovation is happening at breakneck speed. Time is being truncated, and our experience of time is in overdrive.
- How can businesses engage in truly long-term thinking?
- How can business reward structures be redesigned for long-term (vs. short-term) results?
- How can you speed up product innovations from concept to market in a fraction of the time?
Generative AI and Human-Centricity
Unlike previous technologies, generative AI is reliant upon human input, curiosity, and critical thinking. Human elements such as intuition, empathy, sense-making and lived experience will become more valued than ever before. The best strategy for getting the most out of generative AI is to tap even deeper into our most human cognitive abilities. For all the talk about generative AI becoming more creative, perhaps the opposite is true – perhaps it will force us to rethink traditional notions of creativity and make us more creative in the process.
- How do we educate the next generation of thinkers?
- How can we equip ourselves to deal with uncertainty more effectively?
- How do we nurture new minds to solve the big, existential issues/threats of the future?
The Future of Work
One of the lasting trends to come out of Covid was the move to distributed and hybridized work. As leaders navigate an evolving new work landscape, the one critical piece ripe for redefinition is culture. Another critical piece is futureproofing. To ensure that we have the thinking required to solve the big issues that will arise in the future, competitiveness will rely on the creation of an entirely new skills and competencies framework.
- How can you design and execute the conditions for truly effective culture in a hybridized environment?
- How do you create new metrics to measure human output?
- How can you reimagine human capital (and human value creation)?
Generations have long been grouped in birth year cohorts of 15-20 years. But generations are now seemingly refreshing every 2-3 years. Technology is changing so rapidly that kids only a few years apart struggle to have the same cultural and technological frames of reference. Understanding what makes this generation tick is critical for talent management, marketing, education/learning, etc.
- What do shifting values and attitudes mean for recruitment and retention?
- What are the intergenerational tension points internally?
- What will the future of education and learning look like?
Erica’s lively, engaging delivery was a great way to energize our first session.
Erica came beautifully prepared and discussed the importance of examining topics from a fresh and innovative perspective. She was creative, articulate, astute and was able to give the students examples that they could readily relate to. I would definitely use Erica again.
Erica’s talk was a hit. It really had our attendees thinking about the many possibilities ahead, and the talk sent them off to their professional development sessions with “eyes wide open”. She had a great command of the content and the research-based information earned our audience’s respect and attention right from the start. It worked out splendidly!
