Digital disruption: Futurologist and professor Dr. Stefan Gröner on leading through rapid change
- 7:35 - You need data analysts, you need software engineers, people like that in order to setup AI, but I’m pretty sure that in a couple of years, you will need another type of employee. People who have a broader interdisciplinary knowledge for instance or who are more creative in order to think ahead, in order to think about new markets.
- 12:45 - You have to lead by trust and not buy hierarchy, that’s super important. First, to attract more creative people and on the other side as well in order to be competitive in the future. Trust and flexibility are probably the most important leadership skills in the future.
- 16:33 - I’m pretty sure that we’ll have a much more flexible and a much more satisfying work life in the future. We’ll get rid of routine jobs. Work is definitely going to be more interesting and more satisfying.
