Why AI will result in MORE JOBS. Myth of global job destruction from AI due to net job creation. How will AI impact the workplace and work itself? Extract from Chapter 3 - new book: How AI will Change Your Life - by Patrick Dixon, AI keynote speaker

FOR TWO DECADES we heard apocalyptic warnings about ‘The End of Work’. The theme is always the same. A new industrial revolution will bring large-scale automation. As a result, most unskilled jobs won’t be needed, and most middle management will disappear, creating massive job losses.

Some have claimed that 80% of existing jobs will be destroyed by AI in a decade. One tech investor made headlines recently by predicting that 1 billion robots would be walking around our workplaces in twenty years.

Let me explain why I am certain that such forecasts for job destruction are complete nonsense, even taking a view as far ahead as 2060.

WHILE WORKPLACE WIPEOUTS from AI will be less dramatic than some fear, it is still true that in most industries the impact of AI at work will be profound, progressive, powerful. So what will all this mean for management and for leadership, for desk-based work?

AI will be revolutionary for all those who use computers every day. The greatest impact of AI will be to make lives easier for individual workers as they discover new tools. AI will remove day-today drudgery. 

Endless frustrations with badly designed software will (hopefully) disappear, and many people will find that they are able to do things that were almost impossible before. 

For example, creating a unique, high-definition AI photo for a marketing campaign, by typing in a phrase or two. Or designing a graph showing sales per product type, on Excel, just by speaking a brief instruction.

AI means more leadership and less management

For twenty years I have taught on many leadership programmes at business schools....

Back to Work! Face to Face Meetings Win New Business, Accelerate Innovation, Increase Agility, Implement Change. Future Offices, Future of Work and Workplace in world of AI. Working from Home (WFH). Artificial Intelligence impact on Work

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace, HR, WFH - Keynotes

A lot of nonsense was talked by many HR leaders during COVID Lockdown about the end of offices and permanent massive shift to working at home. Just as a lot of other nonsense was talked about how millions of people would never go to a physical food shop again, having got used to ordering online.

At first sight 100% virtual working looked great: less cost, less commuting time and so on. But then the problems gradually became more obvious - just as I had predicted many times. The fact is that most companies that tolerate 80-100% home working for most of their teams will lose out to competitors in the longer term.

Senior executives who actually get on the plane and turn up at a potential client's office, take them out to dinner and so on, are FAR more likely to close their first big deal than their main competitor who wants to save on air fare and travel time and just do a sales pitch on Teams. Especially in emerging markets like Middle East or Asia...

And in the meantime, expect those working from home to be particularly at risk from AI / Artificial Intelligence systems.

Interview with InBusiness Magazine in Turkey:

What major HR trends do you see at the moment? This is a very confusing time for business leaders and HR directors, with chaos in energy markets related to Russia, disruptions in supply chains, huge inflation, ongoing impact of COVID, impact of AI / Artificial Intelligence on jobs and many other factors. What will all this mean for the future of people management, talent acquisition, leadership development, workplace motivation, home working, virtual teams and career development? In my book The Future of Almost Everything, I warned in 2019 about a possible new viral pandemic, about the risk of Russia taking military action in response to fears of NATO expansion, and wrote that oil prices could reach $145. I always say that the world can change faster than you can hold a board meeting, so HR leaders need more than one strategy.  We need to have backup plans for all important things in the business. This is fundamental to risk management and agility, especially in Human Resource Management....

Interview for Oksigen newspaper Turkey on future of Human Resources - September 2022

What changes will we see in working habits?  We will see continuation of many long-term workplace trends, especially amongst workers under the age of 45.  

COVID just accelerated a few of them.  So we need to go far beyond virtual teams or hybrid working

For example: a growing focus on better work-life balance, more flexible hours, permission to work at home at least two days a week.

But these things will not be enough.  We will also see a greater focus on corporate purpose, helping each team member understand how they make a difference at work....

At the same time, AI / Artificial Intelligence will transform the daily routines of huge numbers of people doing office-type jobs.

Future of Work and Impact on Business. How will people want to work after COVID?  Most of my global clients need to know the Future of Work and how their teams will operate in future.  What will happen to future career choices, commuting, team meetings, office occupancy?  

Will home working continue, or will too much virtual working destroy the future of the business?  What trends will we see in future business travel? Will large offices become redundant?

I've been predicting global trends for 30 years - and here's a few forecasts for future of work over the next decade...(and yes I also warned repeatedly in books, keynotes at conferences and in media broadcasts about global risks from new pandemics like COVID).

ALL OF LIFE is a voyage to the future, carrying us beyond distant horizons, blown by the prevailing wind to which we set our sails.

"Many people will relate to this narrative....I commend this book."  Yachting Monthly

6 page feature published in Yachting World

You can read an extract on Google

Life Beyond COVID - millions of people are rethinking their own personal futures, what is important to them, careers, relationships and so on.

Seven years ago, as a pair of empty-nesters, Sheila and I embarked on a somewhat impulsive sailing odyssey, after more than three decades living in the same part of London. I was working at a frenetic pace, flying all over the world, advising global corporations on future trends, while Sheila was running our company, working as a magistrate, supporting a range of community projects, and holding everything else together. We were both very fulfilled, but exhausted.

We were looking to slow down a bit, develop new skills together, kickstart new business ideas, re-invent our future, broaden our minds, see if we could live more simply, and be rejuvenated. We hoped that what we learned at sea might help us sail better through life. But could we really take off into the sunset without wrecking our bank balances, neglecting family, weakening wider relationships, damaging our business, and risking many other things that really matter......?

Seize the day – or your future will take hold of you.

Future of offices after COVID? Why physical meetings will still matter, face-to-face deal-making and change management, impact on office occupancy, workplace redesign, future of virtual teams and global events. Companies need to MEET to THRIVE

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace, HR, WFH - Keynotes

What will happen to the workplace beyond COVID? Over the past few months / years I have delivered a large number of virtual keynotes for global corporations, with up to 800,000 on a single live event  - and everyone is now asking about the same thing.  

What is the future of offices?  Do we still need the same office capacity? Will teams go back to commuting to work, or remain virtual working most of the time?  How much office space will we really need post-COVID?  And what will happen to corporate events?

I have been forecasting global trends for over 25 years now, working with hundreds of the world's largest corporations, who invest billions of dollars each year in offices and expensive HQs. History shows that most major historic events almost always turn out to have smaller long term significance than people usually think at the time.

Most debates about the future in board meetings are NOT about what is going to happen, which is usually obvious to those in a particular industry, but are issues of timing - by when. COVID has accelerated many pungent term workplace trends.

So what does all this mean for workplace management, human resources, leadership development, change management, virtual working, distance learning, agile decision-making?

Happynomics - business, wealth and happiness - connecting with purpose and passion at work. Future of Leadership and Human Resources Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future of Work, Workplace, HR, WFH - Keynotes

Happynomics is about the link between wealth and happiness.

Everyone wants to be happy – most advertisers try to persuade us that the secret of happiness is the next thing we will buy. But we know that long lasting happiness usually depends on many deeper things: friendship, strong family relationships, good health, personal fulfilment and so on.

It is hard to be happy if you have many worries about money, too little or too much. In fact great wealth brings many pressures of its own. Happynomics is about the economics of happiness. Contentment can be measured not only in individuals but also in communities, or indeed across entire nations, looking at a national sense of well-being.

On a national level, Happynomics surveys show that happyness is enhanced to varying degrees by wealth, education, peaceful government and trust, but weakened by things like corruption, insecurity and unemployment. Happiness is a dominant concept in marketing, customer loyalty, product design and workplace motivation.
