Six Takeaways From My Day-to-day Work
I thought you might be interested to hear about what I’m focused on day-to-day and the Key Take-Aways for each.
I spend my days advising, coaching, and investing at the intersection of tech and human transformation.
My mission is to amplify human intelligence, unlock our individual and collective potential, and usher in a brighter future for everyone through the power of exponential tech.
I spend my time peering into the future and offering practical leadership advice for transforming products, individuals, teams, and companies.
- Key Take-Away 1: Exponential tech is here to stay. Understand how to leverage it to amplify your potential.
- Key Take-Away 2: Digital transformation requires human transformation. Understand how to capture both.
- Key Take-Away 3: Define and leverage the Metaverse without leaving your humanity behind.
- Key Take-Away 4: Learn how to shift from fear to curiosity during difficult times.
- Key Take-Away 5: Learn design considerations for products and yourself when building human potential technologies.
- Key Take-Away 6: Expand your definition of cognition. Learn to leverage sensory tech and flow to enhance your performance.
My thinking falls into two main areas outlined below, seeing the future or creating the future:
- See the Future with Vision
Becoming Deep Human in the Exponential Age: Technology, Trends, and the Human Factor.
We are at a unique point in human history where our technologies can exponentially improve and disrupt our societies, especially in the foundation sectors of information, food, energy, transportation, and materials.
At the same time, we are faced with more stress, disengagement, and anxiety than ever.
On the surface, it appears that technology is a big part of the problem. But what if the opposite were true?
Key Take-Away: Exponential tech is here to stay. Understand how to leverage it to amplify your potential.
Endless Innovation: Leveraging Wellbeing to Create and Disrupt.
There has never been a more exciting time to be an innovator.
The world has been turned upside down, and our needs and priorities have shifted.
Now is the time to advance human wellbeing.
Will you flourish or become disrupted by the change?
I believe that wellness and wellbeing tech—tech that helps us get healthier, smarter, and happier—will be one of our most powerful tools.
Creativity, originality, and authenticity are needed now more than ever.
I believe that you must re-prioritize your health and happiness as a means to innovation.
Key Take-Away: Digital transformation requires human transformation. Understand how to capture both.
The Betterverse: Building a Human-Centered Metaverse.
The coming of the metaverse, where we will play, work and eventually live much of our lives, inspires excitement and fear at the same time—and for good reason.
Currently dominated by video games, the metaverse will ultimately revolutionize everything from education to retail, and the stakes are high for companies, brands, and society to get it right.
The first task for leveraging any new technology is to understand it.
I believe that the metaverse, as a tool of transformation, can become an amplifier of human intelligence
Key Take-Away: Define and leverage the Metaverse without leaving your humanity behind.
2. Create the Future with Practical Leadership.
Love and the Crucible: Leadership, Connection, and Curiosity in Challenging Times
That the economy is slowing down is a fact, but how you choose to use this time, to shape your company and yourself, is a choice.
Over the next two years, you can come from fear – and run yourself and your team from panic, adrenaline, and cortisol alone.
Or you can learn growth practices that give you both the curiosity to innovate and the discipline to survive.
Learn how to come from love – and grow, plan, layoff, merge, or pivot from a place that unlocks you and your team’s optimal path.
Learn tools and discover technologies to help develop your inner executive athleticism and become the kind of leader you always dreamt you’d be. Crucibles break rocks and polish diamonds.
Be a Diamond.
Key Take-Away: Learn how to shift from fear to curiosity during difficult times.
Leadership, Technology and Ethics in an Exponential World.
Technology has the potential to help shift the mindsets of billions, but it comes with risks and challenges.
At its best, human potential tech can help humans heal, grow and expand their minds, resulting in whole and healthy humans capable of building a bright future throughout the world.
It can also savage privacy, drive anxiety generating hypervigilance, and reduce the ineffable to “data.”
We have arrived at a pivotal moment in the development of technology.
Recognizing that the tech we build is a reflection of ourselves, we must develop as people while we design.
Outline a personal development plan to ensure that your personal capacity matches the power of your creations.
Key Take-Away: Learn design considerations for products and yourself when building human potential technologies.
Boosted: Amplifying Human Intelligence and Performance in the Exponential Age.
Human cognition is much more than we’ve been taught.
Our minds extend into our bodies, spaces and networks.
The human senses allow our brains to perceive and communicate with the world in ways that are under-leveraged by existing technology.
Embodied and extended cognition will help us to “catch-up” our minds and embedded pro-social behaviors to counteract, and then solve, our current existential crises.
Understand how to create a team and an environment that ignites creativity while modulating stimulation for flow.
Key Take-Away: Expand your definition of cognition. Learn to leverage sensory tech and flow to enhance your performance.
