Why Do We Need a Digital Way of Being?
The world and workplace are looking for people who can keep up with the ever changing landscape brought about by advancements in technology, society and business. It has been estimated that 35 percent of current jobs in the UK are at high risk of computerisation over the next 20 years. The future is likely to mean humans must focus more on creativity and collaboration skills.
These skill sets aren’t ones that can be taught solely through theory and literature. They are skill sets that need to be developed through practice, through learning from failure and through developing an intentional way of being.
Moreover, companies want to ‘do’ digital. When we think about digital, we tend to think of technology and the end products or services produced by digital tech. But what we are starting to see is that digital is much more than technology itself – digital in our world now is a constant state. We interact with digital in almost all touchpoints in our life: in the spaces we use, the relationships we build and the movement of information around the world. We can see that digital now is not just a momentary point. It is constant, it is a way of life.
