On curiosity and skills development

What matters to me is the curiosity I have and develop for emerging technologies, their usages, the emerging mindsets, behaviours and skillset for co-creating, collaborating and cooperating and learning in our augmented and automated world. @rotanarotana


“As individuals and as organisations, we are continually charting new territory, whether it is new technology, business practices, markets, or environments – nothing is static anymore. To successfully navigate this rapidly changing world, leaders need new skills; top among these for me is critical thinking, the ability to run experiments, empathy and comfort with ambiguity. However, there is one trait that underpins them all – a sense of constant curiosity.” @timkastelle


“It’s about looking for creative approaches to solving the most pressing problems we face, not only as companies but also as communities. It’s about always asking why and why not, and not accepting things the way they are or have always been.” In Praise of the Incurably Curious Leader by Douglas A. Ready


“Here’s what Steve Blank suggested: “I think innovation and entrepreneurship will become the liberal arts of the 21st century. With the nature of work changing, the core skills entrepreneurs need to know to become practitioners are actually core skills that everybody will need to know to get a job: creativity, agility, resilience, tenacity, curiosity.” Overcoming Challenges Through Continuous Learning by Janet Sernack


“Empathy and Imagination: This is an area leveraged though their diversity of interests, but also supplemented by their intense desire for purpose. They look to anticipate needs, and often sense shifts before they happen, as a result of their tendency to scan.” Mieke Byerley


On the next economy and organizations

“An effective organization is a community of human beings, not a collection of human resources…” — Henry Mintzberg 


“Shift from “forced hierarchy” to “natural hierarchy” — Natural hierarchy emerges in an organizational setting when individuals are free to collaborate and contribute as per their capability, experience, and passion. This is not driven from the top but is an organically emergent process within a community of diverse, differently-talented, and passionate individuals. This kind of hierarchy doesn’t operate from positional power or through control. It’s an ever-evolving process, dynamically shifting and unfolding, including everyone in its emergence.” — @sahana2802


“This is much more than mere digital transformation of the current workplace. It’s up to globally connected citizens to create the next economy that values human talent: curiosity, creativity, empathy, passion, and humour.” — @hjarche
