Organizational Transformation: IBM Cuts Teleworking to Boost Effective Collaboration in the Workplace

By: Tony D'Amelio
May 30th, 2017

THE FUTURE OF WORK AT IBM When I read the news about IBM's decision to have most teleworkers return to their offices I knew it was something Fortune magazine's GEOFF COLVIN would be following closely.  His last book, Humans are Underrated, focused on where humans fit in and add value in a workplace that is increasingly dominated by robots and smart technology of every sort.  What did IBM's move mean for the future of work?  Will this organizational transformation really increase effective collaboration in the workplace as IBM hopes?  Geoff's concise essay on IBM's decision is below.  He will be following it closely and will weigh in down the road with the impact this change makes for the company and the ramifications more broadly in the workplace.  What do YOU think?  Feel free to comment at the end of this article.

Katty Kay: 2017 International Women’s Day and The Confidence Code

By: Tony D'Amelio
March 8th, 2017

Today is International Women's Day, a day set aside to celebrate globally women and their economic, political, and social achievements around the world. It is also a time to focus on places and situations where women's rights, equality, health, and safety still have a long way to go. The work of BBC World News’ KATTY KAY is a perfect fit for the mission of International Women’s Day. Katty has had the privilege of speaking at many IWD events over the years. Interest was first driven by her bestselling book Womenomics and most recently by the groundbreaking work on confidence she and co-author Claire Shipman did for their bestselling book, The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know. International Women's Day provides a great opportunity to focus a bit on confidence, since it’s such a vital ingredient for the issues that are the focus of this day.
