The Future of Work has arrived. And it's powered by empathy.
We are in a period of change. We need to think and act differently. The new world of work is significantly more digitized and decentralized than before--a transformation accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis. We need to orient ourselves differently to be successful, shifting from transactional to human-centric management, mindsets, and methods to deal with the faster pace of business developments, continuing uncertainties, more complex issues, and an increase in multidimensional projects.
