Did you hear?
Wherever you turn these days, it seems we are running out of time.
Judge for yourself.
In the next 20 years or so, about 47% of all jobs are at risk of automation, with some (think para-legal assistant, loan officer, taxi driver) are at 95% chance of going to the robot.
In the next 10 years, 50% of all S&P 500 companies – the Titans of today’s’ business – will disappear.
A decade is about the same time that we have left to prevent catastrophic climate change – that most likely will force many of us to relocate, lose jobs, and face food disruptions.
In the next 5 years, we are set to experience the kind of economic recession we have never seen before.
Is it me, or is it beginning to smell like Armageddon Now?
There is no question that disruption is coming, fast and furious.
The only question is what are going to do about it?
And here is where reinvention comes in.
Whatever country, industry, profession, or reality you come from, the only way to prepare for the unclear and the uncertain is to learn how to reinvent your way out of ANY disaster.
To help you with that, we have put together a buffet of resources.
If you have 4 weeks, take our Breakthrough Reinvention online course (coming back for a second round on September 30th).
If you only have a few days, read our living book, “Titanic Syndrome: Why Companies Sink and How to Reinvent Your Way Out of Any Business Disaster.” (YES, same tools can apply to your personal reinvention!)
But if you only have one hour, I have a new podcast for you that can get you started as you prepare to face the world of volatility, uncertainty, and rapid disruption.
Listen now – or download it for a car/train/plane ride later:
I hope this hour gives you new ideas on how to make your company and your career future-fit.
And next week we plan to turn to a more concrete issue – how to keep your best people ;).
P.S. I have a HUGE request.
Every 2 years Thinkers50 collects nominations for management thinkers with breakthrough ideas. The nominations are closing soon and I am in the running.
After decades of management ideas (embedded sustainability, Overfished Ocean Strategy, Chief Reinvention Officer, Titanic Syndrome), it’s time to take these concepts to a greater number of people so that they can prepare for disruptions to come.
SO I NEED YOUR HELP.
Please, go to this page and nominate me in two areas:
1. General rankings
2. I’m going for the Breakthrough Idea Awards for Titanic Syndrome – so your vote there would be deeply appreciated – along with any comments.
P.P.S. If you do vote, let me know, so I can thank you profusely and send you 1000+ good karma points )))))
