Work Part 1

Working From Home, but for Whom?

Free Agency For The Win?

Organizing and re-organizing The Workplace was already a topic of discussion and many published books before 2020. In a world where those who were able to Work From Home to better avoid becoming infected and possibly spreading infection, the return to the workplace is now the topic of the day, as the Delta and perhaps the Lambda variants (and perhaps others?) throw a spanner in the works.

Here are the two books mentioned in this episode:

Holacracy by Brian J Robertson (link leads to books page)

The Alliance by Reid Hoffman, Ben Casnocha, and Chris Yeh

Upcoming Episodes on Work

If all goes to plan, this initial entry into the Work topic arc will look something like this:

  1. Knowledge workers, new managerial paradigms, and free agency

  2. Essential Workers and workplace ethics

  3. Essential Knowledge Workers caught in the middle

  4. The future, automation, fulfillment

As usual, these early episodes without guests are intended to plant seeds for future discussion. Most people have opinions and direct experience with one or all of these facets of Work, as The Future of automation, robots, and other replacement strategies is already here for many.
