Brett King will be on Glenn Beck to discuss AI, Robotics, Bitcoin and the Future

On Tuesday, December 12, 2017  Brett King will be a guest on Glenn Beck Radio to discuss the exponential growth of Artificial Intelligence,  the coming of the Robots, and the incredible growth of Bitcoin.

In Brett’s most recent book,  Augmented Life in the Smart Lane,  he outlines four key disruptive technologies that will reform the way we live:  Artificial Intelligence, Experience Design,  Smart Infrastructure, and HealthTec.   Each one of these will augment the way we live in our homes, interact with our money,  get to where we want to go, and even extend our lives.

Brett will be discussing this, and the new book he is working on “Bank 4.0”. on  Glenn Beck Live Radio  or on WVNJAM 1160.  Tune In Tomorrow!

Drones in the Home of the Future By Jessica Stoner

“Drones in the Home of the Future” – this weeks episode of The Future of Real Estate radio show with Real Estate Futurist Jessica Stoner.

How fun are Drones!? Now that we’re finally embarking on the future with the exponential growth of drones and drone technology, what can we expect from these little guys, in and around our homes, neighborhoods and cities? As we are very much on the precipice of the drone revolution, it’s difficult to really grasp the uses we can put them towards. Just like we could not guess the sheer number of apps and the many uses we put them towards on our mobile device when the iPhone first came out, similarly we can’t yet get the full picture of how many ways we’ll use these newly opened up 3 dimensions now available to us. Today’s show is going to be an exploration of where we know we are going with Drone technology, where we think and where we hope it will go, and how all it may affect your home and community of the future.

Employability in the 21st Century: How to Prepare for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet By Hemda Mizrahi and Christopher Bishop

Now on his eighth career, Christopher Bishop speaks, writes, and consults on the topic of “improvising careers.” He joined me on “Turn the Page” to provide guidance on how you can prepare for jobs that don’t exist yet. Chris stresses the importance of devoting time now to work toward what you’ll be doing next—your employability depends on it!

He suggests:

1. “In the next 30 years, we will experience breakthroughs in education, mobility, communication, healthcare and energy to name a few – they will seem like *magic* to us sitting here in 2016. Get ready!”

2. “The new job landscape will be driven by the intersection of historically unrelated disciplines – take nanopharmacology as a concrete example; lunar tour guide if you want a more far-fetched postulation.”

3. “Given the rate and pace at which business and global economics is evolving – you must be prepared to learn new skills but understand that you also need to UNLEARN and RELEARN – to stay viable and employable.”

4. “Fortunately, there are many more options for obtaining new skills than ever before – lots of publicly available learning assets including MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), SPOCs (Small Private Online Courses), TED talks, insightful blogs, e-books, and Meet Ups.”

5. “I know that increasing AMBIGUITY can be scary and off-putting – but try to learn to embrace it! We have no other choice.”

6. “Stay ahead of the curve in terms of TECH and BUSINESS – chase the maelstrom and be always at the edge – then you will be viewed as a valuable contributor.”

7. “Access tactical advice on how to apply my Three Secret Ingredients – Antenna, Voice and Mesh – through the presentation I delivered at the World Future Society annual conference in DC last July. Here is a link. It is called *How to Succeed at Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet.”

8. The key to innovation is connecting unlikely dots – check out my post on LinkedIn – “The Maxwell Approach: connecting unlikely dots to drive innovation”

9. “Share the guidance and historical perspective I provide for recent graduates who have landed jobs at big companies – “6 Tips for GenZs at dinosaurs”

10. “Check out Cambridge professor Carlotta Perez’s book “Technological Revolutions and Financial Capital” for more insight into the cycles of innovation, and adoption that have been occurring for the past 350 years.”

11. “Read this great piece in the NY Times by Steven Rattner called “Fear Not the Coming of the Robots,” in which he cites Queen Elizabeth refusing a patent for an automated knitting machine in 1589 for fear it would put her poor subjects out of work.”

Keep up with Chris’s insights and guidance by following him on Twitter @chrisbishop, visiting his website, www.improvisingcareers.com , and inviting him to speak at your event on the topic of *How to Succeed at Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet!”

Listen to my conversation with Chris to learn more about how the landscape of work is being reinvented and what that means for you!

Leadership 2050 – Four Key Trends and Their Impact On Leadership

Leadership 2050 – Four Key Trends and Their Impact On Leadership

Link to future cc blmoregon

As we prepare for the inaugural broadcast of the Voice America Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations, we wanted to share a bit of what you might hear in the first show focusing on Leadership 2050.

Susan Cannon, renowned futurist, university faculty member, consultant and author, shares some of the competing trends we might expect to see. One thing that is clear from all of her work is the movement toward complexification and its connection to leadership, and the clear conclusion that leaders need to update their leadership “operating system” to respond multiple concurrent changes that will impact leaders and the businesses they run for the rest of most of their careers.

So, here is a preview of some of the trends Susan will talk about and what she has taken away from what she has seen.

1.Let’s start with the fact that the next 30- to 35 years is going to be even more dramatically different than the last. This is difficult to fathom because the past nearly half a century has been rife with monumental changes in technology. Susan has been watching inventor Ray Kurzweil for the last 20 years because he has been incredibly accurate in his technology forecasts. Now he’s director of engineering at Google, and he predicts that at the comparative rate for technological change based on 2001, the twenty-first century will experience 20,000 times more change than the twentieth century. So that’s a lot to be adapting to—and technology is just one sector of change.

2.Scanning the current literature in futures and foresight studies, professional scenarios, and government-sponsored research on global trends, is pretty sobering. Among the more likely trends are systemic change drivers such as abrupt climate change and sudden global financial disruption—those are biggies. Also, we see the possibility of unsustainable levels of production and consumption reaching a tipping point that rapidly deteriorates the biosphere. Likewise, runaway pandemics are a threat. We could see an even greater surge of armed conflict/failing states/terrorism potentially with weapons of mass destruction, and catastrophic water shortages over large parts of the earth.[i] Any of these trends have the potential of driving secondary trends.

3.Positive trends that came out of Susan’s doctoral research focusing on 2020, included a trend toward the feminine values. Its continued growth indicates that it will be a long-term trend. She also concluded that two of the most powerful levers of change toward a positive future would be the changes in the institution of business (especially as conscious or enlightened capitalism continues to emerge) and a greater emphasis on developing and promoting women leaders.

4.Former Vice President Al Gore, who is clearly a prescient guy, recently wrote a well-researched book called Six Drivers of Global Change. He concluded that “there is no prior period of change that remotely resembles what humanity is about to experience.” Gore talks about a “vacuum of leadership” and clearly supports the view that we need a radical new plan in leadership development.

The bottom line is that there is overwhelming evidence that we are already in a perfect storm of increasing complexity, accelerating change, and near constant uncertainty that exceed the mental and emotional capacities of most leaders. If leaders are overwhelmed by complexity, change, and uncertainty now, how will they cope in the future?

This isn’t intended to create fear; it’s actually good news. Historically, whenever the pressure of life conditions threatens our existence as a race, a new and more complex stage of consciousness—you can call it a mindset with a corresponding culture—has emerged. In a sense we are forced to evolve, forced to innovate and transform ourselves for our own good! There is a strong mandate for leaders to innovate and transform themselves so they can drive thriving organizations.

Even more promising is that through the study of how humans and cultures evolve over time, we know that already there is a small but increasing percentage of the population who has the mindset and capacities with the complexity and nuance that will be needed for 2050. They offer a blueprint we want to encourage.

Please tune in to the show to hear more directly from Susan about the trends, and from Mike Morrow-Fox about the leadership mindset and how to develop it.

Note: This post is drawn from a much more in-depth analysis conducted by Susan in a chapter co-authored by Susan Cannon, Mike Morrow-Fox and Maureen Metcalf in the upcoming International Leadership Association Book Leadership 2050: Critical Challenges, Key Contexts, and Emerging Trends (Emerald Group Publishing, 2015). This chapter includes a more comprehensive analysis as well as thorough referencing of all trends.”
