Future-Proof Workplace: Disruption and the Digital Revolution

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!
The digital revolution is upon us opening up new possibilities and careers that didn’t exist only decades ago, and disrupting traditional businesses. Half of Fortune 500 organizations have been wiped out since 2000. If it wasn’t already obvious, we’re all in the technology business, resistance is futile.
A recent headline stated “In an age of robots, we are teaching our children to be obsolete.” Our approach to education has barely changed in millennia. However teaching from the lectern, rote learning is not keeping pace with the rapid change in business and the workplace.
Join us as we talk with Marquess Lewis from Unicon, a leading provider of technology consulting, services, and support for the education industry. Marquess Lewis is currently CTO with Unicon, Inc. with involvement in learning systems architecture for various clients, operations, architecture, and IT Security and as a member of the Unicon executive team.  Mr. Lewis has over 25 years of experience in complex systems development and operations, delivering SaaS platforms and services supporting millions of customers.  A majority of this experience is in Education, Higher Ed and K12 in the US and in global markets as well.

Asking the More Beautiful Question

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

Part of learning to be a problem solver is being able to ask questions. As Peter Drucker famously said, “The leader of the past knew how to tell. The leader of the future will know how to ask.“ But just asking questions can be misleading because some questions can be controlling and leading others to the answers that the asker wants, and really not used for inquiry. We have found that there is a great link between open non-judgmental questioning and innovation. Our guest this week is Warren Berger, best selling author, speaker and innovator, who takes questioning to a new level.  We will talk about how the power of questioning can ignite change in our companies, careers, and daily lives.  This is a must listen show!
