Workshop (*With Breakout Rooms)

A Radical Purpose for a Radical Time: A revolutionary approach to rethinking organizations

You voted for this
Massive changes are coming our way in the Future of Work.  We cannot escape the impending insurmountable economic, human, and ecological impacts from the technological wave and the existing broken system of work.
It’s time to stop waiting for it all to happen to us and let things just “work themselves out.” For far too long, ideologies and systems have impacted us rather than the other way around. Now it is time for us as individuals and collectively to start designing the future we want — a future that benefits nature and ALL of humanity.
This workshop will bring to light the human-based reasons why work is not meeting people’s needs. We will explore how to bring a new perspective on what it means to work, own, and do business. Experience the insights that will radically change how you see work and give you the tools to make it different.
You will learn to evaluate the current situation from an interdependence and radical purpose perspective. And how to use this new perspective to design a better environment for yourself, your colleagues, and your organization.
