In his presentation, Robert will be investigating the changing face of our relationship with technology, particularly the impact that it’s increasing cognitive capacity is having on our competitiveness in the workplace, the choices that we can make in response and their implications. The last half of the presentation will focus on how we can develop stronger thinking skills to better meet the challenges of the changing workplace by applying the dialectical thinking approach of prominent post-Jungian Wolfgang Giegerich.
Robert will to bring this pivotal idea of Giegerich’s to life in a practical way that should mainly appeal to three audiences…
People with a general interest in models of thinking, particularly dialectics.
Jungians who are interested in learning about Wolfgang Giegerich’s ideas on Soul, Technology and Thinking,
Professionals who need to lift their game with thinking and are looking to develop a new approach which will give them greater flexibility and creativity. Particularly I have two groups in mind here, technical analysts who are entering the workforce and need to expand their thinking skills beyond their current toolset before it overtakes them and also older managers who have been chased out of legacy industries by agile work processes and need to reboot their careers.
We may not be able to beat the machines, but if we strive to understand the challenges we face psychologically and apply the best methods available, then we can at least give it a good go.
