Lightning Strikes: How AI is Revolutionizing the Future of Work

Say goodbye to the old ways and embrace the power of AI in the future of work.

Three bullet point summary:
  1. AI is transforming the way we work, from cold calling to decision-making.
  2. Companies that embrace AI will have a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining top talent.
  3. The gamer culture has skills critical for success in today's fast-paced business environment.

One never knows when lightning strikes, or where inspiration springs and so it happened to me this morning.  Each Wednesday, I click into a web session hosted by West and Ed (Level Up)on a plethora of different subjects and guests.  This week  Bob Johanson, who just wrote his 13th book, "Office Shock" was on to talk about the great changes we've been experiencing and the changes we are and will experience.  I can't recommend this 29-minute session enough - so good to hear somebody else on the same page.

After The Fire - what people want now.

The fear of Covid initiated many different movements; social, and political, especially in redefining how we view the importance of work and what environments we work in.  Bob talked about what the new work ethic involves, from the employee's vantage:
  • Purpose in work
  • Flexibility in how and where you work from and for
  • Gamer Culture is how we learn, communicate and grow
Here's a closer look at the three points,

Purpose in work: 

In the past, work was often seen as a means to an end, a way to pay the bills and put food on the table. But as the world changes, employees are looking for more from their jobs. They want to feel that their work has a purpose and that they are making a difference in the world. Employers who provide their employees with a sense of purpose and meaning in their work have a significant advantage in attracting and retaining top talent.

Flexibility in how and where you work from and for: 

One of the most significant changes in the workplace over the past year has been the shift to remote work. Many employees have found that they prefer working from home or from other non-traditional locations. This trend is will continue, and employers who offer their employees flexibility in terms of where and how they work possess a competitive advantage. Employees are looking for greater work-life balance, and flexibility can help to achieve this balance.

Gamer Culture is how we learn, communicate, and grow: 

Gamers are known for their ability to learn quickly and adapt to new situations, skills that are important in today's fast-paced business environment. Additionally, gamers are collaborative and communicate effectively with others, skills that are critical for success in many jobs. Employers who embrace the gamer culture and leverage the skills of gamers are well-positioned for success in the years to come.

This is not hyperbole (an Ocean I love to swim)  Augmented Intelligence is changing your world right now.  The Office and All the technology needed to support the act of 'work' is changing, this very second.  

This isn't like the move from mainframes to PCs, from the C: prompt to the mouse, or from spinning hard drives to the clouds - this is the Big One.  And not in 10 or 3 years - or Q4/24, companies you haven't heard of yet, are being funded and bringing AI programs to market today.

What sort of apps you ask?   There are companies out there that you've never even heard of that are bringing AI programs to market today. Think about all the daily activities you do - from cold calling, spreadsheets, and online meetings to note-taking and decision-making.

These are revolutionized by AI.

Keep selling copiers and hit that quota - BUT. For your future, get into AI today, on your own.  Don't wait for an 'expert' to come to you or for your dealership to hire some guru, seek mentors out today.

This is the Big One, and it's happening right now.

Song Recommendation:
"The Power of Goodbye" by Madonna is a song that talks about letting go of the past and moving on to a better future. It's about the strength that comes with saying goodbye, even though it might be difficult. This message could be relevant to the theme of embracing the changes brought about by AI in the workplace. It might be hard to let go of old ways of doing things, but it's necessary to move forward and embrace the future.
