For today’s talk from our 6-week-long Summer Series: 25 minute daily talks all throughout June, we had a session with Douglas Board, Founder, Maslow’s Attic.

The HR Boxset: Time to Change the Scriptwriters

Douglas’ talk was a big picture diagnosis of disappointment fuelling a campaigning call for a different approach – so that in our lifetime HR rises, at last, at the eleventh hour, as we are about to get trampled by robots and AI, to the challenge of shaping organisations to be inspiring workplaces: and more specifically, places (organisations, systems, communities) of extraordinary achievement in which ordinary lives matter.

Douglas spoke about:

  • The big mistake that has trapped the HR function – and our workplaces – in a painful place
  • Three steps to a very different, much more inspiring, future
  • and more

If you would like to get in touch with Douglas, contact him on twitter @BoardWryter.

The book which Douglas refers to in the talk is his latest, ‘Elites: can you rise to the top without losing your soul?’
