From the Inside Flap
Nobody can really be sure what tomorrow will bringwhat game-changing technology, history-shaping demographic shifts, or unanticipated market forces will emerge, or how they'll impact the way we work and lead. But what we do know for certain is that the future will be different from what we've known; it's already taking shape right before our eyes, and if we don't prepare for it now, we can surrender any hope of our organizations surviving or thriving tomorrow.
A rousing wake-up call and an essential survival guide, The Future-Proof Workplace is the distillation of award-winning leadership and organizational consultants and thought leaders Linda Sharkey's and Morag Barrett's extensive work with Fortune 500 organizations and CEOs around the world. Drawing upon their first-hand experiences, as well as the latest research, it offers you a proven formula for assessing, retooling, and reshaping your organization for tomorrow's challenges, today.
Packed with compelling real-world case studies and examples, it fills you in on the six critical factors that must be addressed if you hope to remain competitive in an increasingly turbulent, global marketplace: Leadership, Culture, Organizing Principles, Relationships, Diversity and Inclusion, and Technology. You'll also discover how emerging technologies and advances in neuroscience research are toppling twentieth-century organizational paradigms and transforming the way we work. And you'll find out how yesterday's biases are being replaced by tomorrow's values, culture, and relationships.
In addition, you will learn to look deep into the heart of your company to determine if it's ready and willing to adapt to the purpose-driven business paradigm of the future. You'll gain powerful insights into the new organizational models that are coming into being at the most successful, forward-thinking companies, worldwide. And you'll learn to identify and seize the bold, new opportunities that twenty-first-century organizational structures will offer.
With The Future-Proof Workplace as your guide, you'll be prepared to meet new challenges head-on and to grow your organization the day after tomorrow and beyond.
