Are You Living A Linear Life In An Exponentially Changing World?
Are You Living A Linear Life In An Exponentially Changing World?

Could it be that the reason why we are collectively burning out is not the result of physical, mental and spiritual exhaustion, but the result of us living a linear life in an exponentially changing world? What if our disengagement at work is not a byproduct of overwork, but a symptom of the tug of war between our fear of missing out and our ingrained need...

Success Is What You Attract By The Person You Become

Changing our behaviour is a challenge with few equals. 80% of all New Year's resolutions fail by February. Only 2 out of 10 change initiatives succeed. Long-term, sustained change (not short-run bursts that sputter out before real shift happens) is one of the hardest things any of us will ever try to accomplish. Whether the change involves diet, exercise, habits, personal development or anything else, changing behaviour...

I came in when things that used to work, no longer worked and intervention was needed. I was the interface...

The future of work?
The future of work?

History as a predictor of future outcomes? Cliodynamics may be a new discipline, but drawing on data that describes what happened in the past to anticipate what will happen next is not exactly novel. From risk management, to medical sciences the past often serves as a reliable predictor of future. Five years ago I started applying this transdisciplinary approach to an area to which we dedicate about a...

When employees have an opinion, fire them
When employees have an opinion, fire them

Just as Google engineer James Damore was getting sacked this month for a controversial memo he wrote 3 1/2 years ago, I was finalizing a controversial book I started writing at approximately the same time. Damore’s memo expressed critical views of the company's diversity efforts. In response to social media’s uprising about freedom of speech, echoed by a handful of female engineers, Sundar Pichai, Google’s CEO,...
