Session Focus:
  1. The New Lawyer developing new mindset, skills and values for professional future of work capabilities
  2. bWell the Baker McKenzie global approach to mental and physical health and wellbeing in a high stress profession
Over the last two years ELE has been sharpening our point of view on the future of work and more recently with Alex Levit, author of Humanity Works: Merging Technologies and People for the Workforce of the Future, where she identifies New Job Categories--Trainers, Explainers & Sustainers. As AI technology evolves in the workplace, adopting an agile learning mindset enables each one of us to increase productivity while enhancing the control of our future career.


Workshop activities and an interactive peer-discussion will dig deeper on envisioning the future workplace such as:
  • How would you describe a typical organizational culture today? What changes could make it more competitive mid-21st-century workplace?
  • Does employee training available today hone in on skills like creativity, judgement and intuition? How might we adjust it to better incorporate these?
  • How can digital assistants & machine participation enhance and advance the purpose of how an organization works? For instance, could the role of trainers teach AI systems and how they should perform?
