Let’s usher in the age of Wisdom

Many people are pessimistic about the state of the world today. Many challenges come to the surface and the story of naive progress we inherited from the Industrial Age is falling apart. Yet, I hope that this is just the first step on our journey of becoming more aware.

What’s next? I dream of the age of Wisdom, about progress that’s measured not in the number of factories built but in the impact on the community and the environment. The age where we’d be able to process the hurt and live both for ourselves and for others not only trying to fill in the eternal lack in ourselves.

Just as individuals can embody wisdom, organizations too must embrace this transformative journey. Functional institutions are critical to our survival. Founders that disrupt industries are rare, and disruptions are costly. Wise organisations are those that can adapt to the new requirements of the changing world. For example, construction companies that transition to sustainable practices and lean construction. Construction is an especially poignant example because global labor-productivity growth in construction has averaged only 1 percent a year over the past two decades, compared with growth of 2.8 percent for the total world economy and 3.6 percent in manufacturing.

My mission is developing a tool that can help - AI coaching. Adapt, don’t become history.
