Successfully developing, embedding and sustaining one’s organisational culture is a feat within itself, seeking good business culture examples and learning from them can offer us a fresh and different perspective.
Wha t is this Culture thing a nd why is everyone talking about it? I’ve been involved in Culture work for over 12 years and it seems in the last 2 - 3 it’s become the buzz word of the moment, along with Future of Work, Gig Economy, Flexible Working and Employee Experience!
I felt extremely humbled and privileged to be invited as a judge to the 2017 Employee Experience Awards. I’ve been lucky enough to have done this kind of thing in the past and have always found the experience very rewarding and eye opening. Therefore the decision wasn’t a tough one, especially as this is a topic very close to my heart.
- The Digital Age
- Artificial Intelligence
- Cognitive Computing
- Ageing Populations
- Power shifts from Employer to Employee and from Organisation to Customer…
Recognise any of these?
I love the term ‘Futurist! How cool would it be to have a title like that?!
“So what do you do Mr./Ms. Futurist?”
“I study the future in order to help people understand, anticipate, prepare for and gain advantage from coming changes…” as defined by the Association of Professional Futurists.
I heard a futurist speak at a conference recently and was instantly both mesmerised (on behalf of the positive, confident and rational grown woman in me) and petrified (on behalf of the inner scared little girl).
I have recently become fascinated with the world of Cryptocurrencies and Blockchains. In it’s simplest form, cryptocurrency is an encrypted digital currency, transferred peer to peer and managed by a decentralised public ledger (a blockchain), without the need for a central institution, e.g. a bank. The most well known cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. “Speak English’ I hear you cry! I hear you, I'm still baffled by it on a daily basis but nevertheless, it has captured my imagination.
More recently I explored how transactions work in this world and was intrigued by the unfamiliar and confronting rules by which it is governed.
