    The Future of Work (ft. Future Forum)

    The Future of Work (ft. Future Forum)

    Future Forum is a consortium launched by Slack focused on building a way of working that is flexible, inclusive, and connected. They conduct research and convene executives to design a people-centered and digital-first workplace. You might be familiar with their quarterly Future Forum Pulse survey of 10,000+ knowledge workers around the globe. They also produce playbooks to help decision-makers tackle real-world challenges like how to measure the success of digital-first teams, how to make hybrid work work, and how to build for diversity, equity, and inclusion
    Today we have the Future Forum’s leadership in the house: Brian Elliott, Sheela Subramanian, and Helen Kupp.  They’re here to discuss, among other things, their new book: “How the Future Works” —which was such an audacious title, it intrigued the heck out of me, and having read an advance copy, I’m happy to say it delivers.

    Spotify, Disney, Ukraine, and Deep Purpose (ft. Ranjay Gulati)

    Spotify, Disney, Ukraine, and Deep Purpose (ft. Ranjay Gulati)

    The term “purpose” has been hijacked. The vast majority of companies today deploy corporate purpose superficially as a promotional vehicle to makes themselves appear virtuous to the outside world or to rally employees. But purpose—if used correctly—can be a transformative way of doing business. In his book, distinguished Harvard Business School professor Ranjay Gulati argues that companies must embed purpose much more deeply than they currently do, treating it as a radically new operating system for the enterprise.

    Barry J. Nalebuff is the Milton Steinbach Professor at the Yale School of Management. Nalebuff applies game theory to business strategy and is the co-founder of one of America's fastest-growing companies, Honest Tea.

    The Shame Industrial Complex (ft. data scientist & author Cathy O' Neil)

    The Shame Industrial Complex (ft. data scientist & author Cathy O' Neil)

    Cathy O'Neil is a mathematician, data scientist, and author. She’s written books on data science, including the New York Times best-seller Weapons of Math Destruction, which is an influential source for the Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence community—and where I first started following her work. 
    She’s now the author of The Shame Machine: Who Profits in the New Age of Humiliation, which just came out a week or two back, and I’m excited to talk to her all about it, including what exactly a shame machine is, what’s the difference between punching up and punching down, and even if shame can be a good think and lead to societal growth.

    Disruption Through Smart Growth (ft. Whitney Johnson)

    Disruption Through Smart Growth (ft. Whitney Johnson)

    One of the things we discuss on this show often is what the future will look like. Another key theme we keep coming back to is how individuals and companies can increase their impact so they can build the future they’re looking to create.
    To that end, there was a book that came out right at the beginning of the year you might’ve missed, and I sure hope you didn’t. The book is SMART GROWTH: How to Grow Your People to Grow Your Company, and it’s by Whitney Johnson, who’s CEO of Disruption Advisors, #8 on the Thinkers50 list of leading business thinkers in the world, and host of the popular Disrupt Yourself podcast. I talk to her about the concept of Smart Growth, how individuals and companies take stock of where they are now in order to help figure out where they ought to go next, how the Great Resignation is tied into the ideas she discusses in her book, and much more.

Fun, unexpected, and absorbing

Future Proof is fun, enlightening, and thought provoking. Jeremy Goldman explains it all with insightful humor, intelligent questions and fascinating guests. I like the way he weaves the personal experience, future focused technology, and different ways of thinking into one podcast after another. Never boring, always fun, I feel smarter for listening.
