On this final episode of Digital Outliers Season 1, my dear friend Stowe Boyd joins to discuss the “humanities of it all.” Stowe is futurist and editor-in-chief at Work Futures. He believes (and my research shows) that companies are often missing the mark on digital transformation by thinking about it from an industrial approach instead of a humanities-based approach.
In a wide-ranging discussion, Boyd shares his thoughts on the inherent bias in social media and how we have to do more than being aware to counteract it. He also shares how orgs can capitalize on the groundswell created by change agents, no matter where they sit in the organization, and move from an industrialization mindset into a future of work mindset.
Please listen and share!
