Conference: <br>Technology. Human capacity. Awareness. - KUMU, Tallinn, Estonia

Technology. Human capacity. Awareness. - KUMU, Tallinn, Estonia

03. May 2018

In their new report, McKinsey Global Institute found that up to 800 million global workers will lose their jobs by 2030 and be replaced by robotic automation. The change will be huge as up to one-fifth of the global workforce will be affected.  

Robots, machine learning (AI) and virtual reality (VR) are here to stay. With new technology becoming so much faster and rapidly advancing, the need for new perspectives on human capacity is paramount. We as humans often run on autopilot by default, not thinking or questioning our own automated internal processes. We need to become more aware of what, how and why we as humans do the things we do. To maintain our own competitive advantage, we  — as humans — need to upgrade our own skills. We need to switch from slow processes of thinking to awareness-based skills (like intuition, insight, and creativity).

Estonians are driven, entrepreneurial and forward-thinking people. A lot of startup companies have grown out of our tiny country and are now very successful  Skype, TransferWise, Pipedrive, Click & Grow, GrabCAD, Erply, etc. We live in a society where technology has changed our lives. We have mobile-parking, we do e-banking, we declare our taxes online, we talk with distant friends and family over Skype and we vote via e-voting. ID-card and mobile ID have been with us longer than anywhere else in the world. This makes our Tallinn event the perfect place to ask questions like:

  1. How can we as humans and companies be winners from new technical solutions? 
  2. What are the new human challenges in this tech world? 
  3. What are the future success skills – why do awareness/consciousness and ethics matter now even more than ever?

“What brought us here, will not take us forward” Toomas Hendrik Ilves, The President of Estonia

Let’s bring the focus to the ability to notice – to being aware – the cornerstone of intellectual capacity.

Creativity, innovation and insight – these are the fundamentals of noticing and taking a different path, differing greatly from memory-based activity, where one only adjusts and copies what is already known. Being aware means to have the most up-to-date and firsthand contact with the real-time events. Things are in constant change, never quite as we remember them to be. A previously effective solution may not be the best one any more.  Burnout, information overflow, attention deficit… the way we work does not work anymore.

Why follow and copy others, if we can be the pathfinders, leaders?

“Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower”.

 Steve Jobs founder of Apple, visionary

Conference: <br>Workplace. Wellbeing. Performance. - Tallinn, Estonia

Workplace. Wellbeing. Performance. - Tallinn, Estonia

05. May 2016

How about more engaged employees, higher productivity, fewer claims and sick time?

Can you imagine a team of inspired people who are creative, dedicated and, aware of what they do? Such a team can push the boundaries of what’s possible! What separates a top expert and successful leader from the rest is the mastery of intrapersonal skills (how to manage emotions, thoughts, get insights, etc). What separates a great team from the rest is the ability to co-operate in any given situation. What separates great companies from the rest is their work culture and ethics! Our next Tallinn conference aims to redefine workplace, wellbeing, and productivity based on the aware approach.
In the 21st century, the key to success for any organization is the intellectual capacity of its PEOPLE. The wellbeing of each employee is now recognized as a key determinant of performance – providing productivity and quality in what the company aims to do.  

“When you care for your people, you have people who care for your company”

Sir. Richard Branson

Since a healthy workforce is a productive workforce, let's create a culture of wellbeing based on intrapersonal skills mastery that can be translated into productivity and sales. Workplace wellbeing is much more than things - sleep-pods, gym or special features. Rather it is about employee mind-set and skills, a strategy to engage and keep the brightest heads of your company.

Burnout, stress, information overflow, hyper-connectivity, attention deficit, disengagement, and depression … these are the challenges workplaces today face. We regard it our mission to positively disrupt this unsustainable pattern.

“My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they’re having a meaningful impact and are more contributing to the good of society. As a world, we’re doing a better job at that. My job is to lead in that.”

Larry Page, CEO and Co-founder of Google
