Automation is transforming the landscape of work and the tasks that we perform. This 4th industrial revolution requires individuals, teams, and organizations develop new skills and new ways of working.

This is a digital transformation underpinned by fast and frequently changing technology to solve the problems and complete tasks previously performed by people. And this digital transformation demands another transformation. A talent transformation. A transformation that will enable individuals to understand the future and the needs for reskilling and upskilling.

We are navigating uncharted territory. Successful organizations will transform in ways that resonate with their vision, business model, and people while leveraging the benefits of automation. Others will fail.

Providing leadership during times of change demands a deep understanding of the issues. What is going to change? How will it change? Who will do what?

That’s where the Talent Transformation Guild comes in.

The Talent Transformation Guild is an agile community of like-minded people looking to be a part of the solution.

The Guild connects human resources professionals, personal coaches, and consultants with each other.

It stimulates conversation by providing webinars, articles, conferences, and a framework known as the Talent Transformation Pyramid. This framework is licensed under creative commons and provides a vocabulary to enable conversations and interventions to prepare for talent transformations.

About the Future of Work

According to the World Economic Forum, new and emerging technologies are affecting our lives in ways that indicate we are at the beginning of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. This new era will build and extend the impact of digitization in new and unimaginable ways. The Fourth Industrial Revolution can be described as the advent of “cyber-physical systems” involving new capabilities for people and machines. This will see new ways for technology to become embedded within societies and even our bodies.

With process automation, robotic automation, the internet of things the nature of work will change. Some analysts predict that more than 40% of tasks currently performed by humans will be delegated to machines. This does not mean that 40% of people will be put out of work but it does mean that most workers will have to upskill. HR experts are predicting this will dramatically change the landscape of our workforce.
