38. How COVID-19 is acting as a Catalyst to Accelerate the Future of Work with Heather McGowan

COVID-19 is changing our world irrevocably. First and foremost it is a health crisis, people are getting sick, families are losing loved ones and the virus is going to be with us for the foreseeable future.

In the words of this week's guest, Coronavirus might also be the great catalyst for business transformation. What previously was expected to develop over the course of several years is instead unfolding before our very eyes in the course of a few months. If the Future of Work requires restructured workplaces, redefined roles, rapid learning and reserves of trust, and it does, organisations are being challenged to do all that and more as they address the Coronavirus pandemic. Those are the words of this week's guest, Future of Work strategist, Heather McGowan, whose new book, The Adaptation Advantage, co-authored with Chris Shipley, has just been released.

In our conversation Heather and I discuss:

  • Why COVID-19 is acting as the catalyst for business transformation and the Future of Work
  • The pivotal role of culture and how leadership styles will adapt in the Future of Work.
  • How we need to embrace and absorb new skills and let go of old ones
  • Why our old measure of potential success, IQ has given way to EQ and is now shifting yet again to AQ or adaptability quotient
  • Why the role of HR needs to evolve and what HR leaders need to do differently
