Imagine if we lived in space and sent Greta Thunberg to take man’s first steps on planet Earth. Recently I attended on an event on the theme of space – the above thought was raised, maybe you can help me answer some questions that are now spinning like a satellite in my skull:
- What would the uninhabited planet Earth (Tellus) look like today?
- Space as a market is valued at 1,000 billion dollars per year in 2040*. What would a virgin land be valued at today?
- Which animal species would be dominant in number? On land, air and in the water?
- Would we consider the earth a paradise with respect or a big e-commerce site to shop resources from?
- Would we understand that the earth’s resources are limited?
- Had we become part of nature this time?
- Would Greta’s generation get to create the future they desire?
- What would we take with us from space?
- How would you use your knowledge on the uninhabited planet?
- What satellite/question is now spinning in your head?
Thanks for the inspiration Alexandra, Polina, Preslav and speakers at the event at Carrus Network.
We posed that question to talents in sports and business. The answers pointed to three different speeds that radically affect the result for both the individual and the organization.
The answers they provided Stefan showed a clear pattern. The talents knew about their speed yet they did not see the connection between their speed, their development, and well-being.
Understimulated -Leads to them not developing. Which is a negative for their well-being and performance. The organization risks the person not moving on.
Challenged and stimulated -Within the framework of a speed they can handle. Positive for well-being and performance.
The organization sees the talent and gives the individual more to handle than they are ready for. Examples are projects that go beyond their experience and competence. Increases stress/burnout and reduces performance.
Both too slow and too fast speeds lead to the organization risking losing its talent (under- or over-stimulated leads to the same result).
Within which of the above speeds are you and your colleagues?
Now that AI (the chatbot Chat GPT) can do the ordinary work, our unique abilities are becoming increasingly important in workgroups.
All major technological advances present challenges. Yet we choose to look at opportunities instead. It’s about using AI optimally to create value. As all organizations gain access to AI like Chat GPT, our unique capabilities are needed more than ever to keep up. People who use their talents, diagnosis, and characteristics can, in cooperation with Chat GPT, increase competitiveness.
Four success factors between AI and humans:
1. The ability to ask great questions is invaluable.
2. Raising social competence and creating belonging.
3. Reviewing recruitment so more people with unique abilities have the opportunity for employment.
4. Allowing everyone to unleash their abilities in an accepting company culture.
