One year into the pandemic, it’s a certified fact that the way we work is changing — dramatically. Some of the most notable changes include the growth of remote work, globalization of distributed teams, flatter structures, more focus on gender and racial equity, shifting everything to the cloud, and rising expectations for greater transparency.

The Future of Work, hosted by Jacob Morgan, provides a map to navigating this rapidly changing business landscape through interviews with senior leaders from many sectors who are thinking deeply about how the changes impact individuals and organizations.

Some my favorite episodes include:

Kate Johnson, CEO of Microsoft, USA who shares what it means to lead a 10,000-person division with empathy and courage. Kate reflects on why weaving empathy into a corporate culture matters and how she is approaching this challenge.

Host Jacob Morgan describing his 14 Principles for the Future of Work. These are principles that inform how we will work, organize, and lead in the future if we are to thrive.

Rita McGrath, Columbia Business School Professor and author of Seeing Around Corners: How to Spot Inflection Points in Business Before They Happen. McGrath gives real-life examples of how companies like Nike and Best Buy have successfully identified inflection points and avoided crisis.

These days we spend so much time in front of screens. So, every so often it’s nice to close one’s eyes, turn on a podcast like The Future of Work, and gain a bit of new insight and inspiration.
