How we can flourish in the new high-tech world of longer living
London Business School professor Lynda Gratton has been a fixture on the Thinkers50 ranking of the world’s leading management thinkers for more than a decade. She is the bestselling author of Hot Spots, Glow and The 100-Year Life (with Andrew Scott).
In her latest book (again co-authored with Andrew Scott) The New Long Life, she presents a compelling framework for flourishing in a changing world. Smart new technologies. Longer, healthier lives. Human progress has risen to great heights, but at the same time it has prompted anxiety about where we’re heading. Are our jobs under threat? If we live to 100, will we ever really stop working? And how will this change the way we love, manage and learn from others?
One thing is clear: advances in technology and longevity have not been matched by supporting innovations in our social structures. We haven’t yet discovered new ways of living and working and that is creating a growing tension between our traditional patterns of behavior and the world in which we live.
This uniquely interactive webinar will explore the contents of Lynda Gratton’s new book and its implications for re-shaping the world in the post-Covid age.
