Description of the session

Over the past year, enormous changes have taken place in the organization of work that, even before the pandemic, seemed a rather distant future. Accelerated digital transformation, mass transition to home office or hybrid work, accelerated digital transformation and a change in the approach to work with work-life balance towards work-life integration.

Leadership models are not indifferent to these changes, but evolve with them. So in what direction is the future of work going? Will technological advances make certain professions cease to exist or be redefined? How will our understanding of work change from the perspective of both the leader and the employees?

In this session you will learn:

How will the fourth industrial revolution affect our world: work, education, future management and economic models?
Will the development of artificial intelligence and ubiquitous automation make a large part of today's workforce redundant?
The history of humanity's relationship with work - from everyday survival to a deep connection with our psyche and self-image
The impact of industrialization and each subsequent "revolution" from the perspective of women - conclusions for all leaders
