Veranderingen van 'werk' en individuele rollen

February 10, 2019

The future looks promising but same time worrying. The present feels exciting but might also be exhausting. The past seems fruitful but sometimes regrettable. Fears and courage are co-existing variables in each of our steps. Looking into a future requires reflection on our history, present, and our identity.

In this talk, I will take a causation-but-effectuation approach to discuss the nature of our identity and our hopes for one of the possible positive future settings. I will argue there won’t be a concept of ‘job’ in the future, but there will be a concept of a singularity identity. We will not have to struggle in so-called ‘(un)employment’ and ‘job-less innovations’, but accordingly we have an (r)evolution, for the positive change in institutions, education, selection, and evaluation system.

Finally, I will discuss with our audience a few things that we should immediately do to achieve those mentioned above at different levels, as an individual, as an organization, and as an institution.
