We are living in a world defined by the laws of the industrial age. A world in which schools prepare us to work as a human robot in an office. A world in which political parties in our democracies are divided between labor (left) and capital (right) and in which hospitals care for us only after our bodies fail. It is a world in which work gives meaning to life and in which full employment for all seems a realistic endeavor.
This world will cease to exist. Our youth will experience that digitalization and automation replaces most human jobs, while new tasks are executed through and by artificial intelligence. Digitalization affects all fundaments of our society: the purpose and meaning of employment, the organization of education and healthcare and even democracy. This transition will not occur smoothly; a societal revolution is on the way.
What is the Future Leadership Dialogue
We do not want to start this revolution unprepared, thereby avoiding to develop a new society only after having forcefully held on to existing interests and thoughts. No sticking our heads in the sand, we need a platform to start the conversation about what the society of the future should look like. This way, we can start imagining and shaping a desirable future that benefits all.
The Future Leadership Dialogue aims to do exactly that: to mobilize current and future leaders to help shape our future. The youth is the future, and hence they have an important role in this movement. They offer fresh and innovative insights and are motivated to contribute to the world they willsomeday have to lead and direct. Current leaders havethe knowledge, networks, experience and organizational power. A constructive dialogue between both brings the best of both worlds together.
A dialogue is based on listening and constructively building upon the arguments of others. A wide diversity of dialogue partners, young professionals, conventional leaders and innovative experts, are invited to imagine the future of every major sector. Moreover, a platform allows others to participate, sharing ideas and raising the necessary question. This way anyone can help mitigate the unpredictability of the upcoming societal revolution.
Why do we take this initiative?
The digital transformation raises questions that are out of reach of a consulting firm, like Strategy Works. However, our insights, competences and experience in participative processes are more useful now than ever and quick action is necessary. Consequently, we have started a non-profit movement, that evokes people to take responsibility in the upcoming societal revolution.
We are currently looking for (financial) partners to help set our initiative in motion. Are you interested? Read our brochure or contact Rinske Breuer (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
