The One Thing That Technology Can Never Take Away From Us

The AI and automation discussion is a constant one. Although it has quieted down a bit while we focus on dealing with the current COVID-19 pandemic, it will eventually pick back up. But over the past few months I’ve been glad to see so many stories and examples of leaders and people in general who are being…human. This is something we cannot forget!

We must always remember that business…work…is still fundamentally a human thing. Of course, we can’t turn a blind eye to the dramatic impact that technology will have on our professional and personal lives which means we must ask, “what is going to be the role of humans in the future of work?

For over the past decade I’ve been fortunate to travel the world speaking at conferences, advising leaders, and meeting interesting people from all walks of life. Now more than ever, I’m convinced that our main role as humans is to be…human. We must focus on things like empathy, communication, connecting with one another, building relationships, coaching and mentoring, being vulnerable, and doing and being all of the things that make us who we are.

Technology will never be able to take away the humanity that each and every one of us possesses.
