Fast forward to the future workplace, it is certain that:

  • simple automation will replace many routine human jobs.

It is highly probable that:

  • the traditional hierarchy will be replaced by wirearchy (networks) & workforce structures will change dramatically.

It is even possible that:

  • organisations will be leaderless and work will be all self-directed by employees.

So what does all this mean?

From an employee perspective, the competencies that got you here, won’t necessarily take you into the future. Whilst it is imperative that all employees develop their digital skills to keep up with the rapid speed of evolving technology, the human skills will be, just as, if not even more essential, in the future workplace.

It will be a workplace where relationships trump rank.

Individuals who master connect-ability, the skill of understanding the science behind human connection to intentionally build meaningful relationships, will win in the workplace of the future.

Connect-ability is the skill of co-connecting, utilising artificial and human interactions to build stronger relationships. The future will not be AI/Robots vs Humans. It does not need to be an either/or thing.

Technology is the vehicle, but it will always be the humans who are behind the wheel.

In the workplace of the future, where teams will disband as quickly as they form, individuals must build trust and form new, meaningful relationships quicker and deeper than ever before.

Understanding how the human brain is wired is imperative to be able to strategically build relationships and influence others in the artificial world. Understanding our own humanness, tapping into it and combining this with the wonders of technology will enable greater connection than ever before.

And the good news is, connect-ability is the most human skill of all!

Keep smiling, keep connecting
