About the book

Humanity Works shows you how to lead the organizations of the future. The professional landscape is poised on the brink of transformation and the only way to have a sustainable competitive advantage in this constantly evolving, virtual, global and automated world is by maximizing the unique human skills of your workforce. Bestselling author, global workplace consultant, and futurist Alexandra Levit provides a guide on how to make the most of the human traits of creativity, judgement, problem solving and interpersonal sensitivity. She studies what the 'robot takeover' will really look like, how talent and machines can work side-by-side and how organizational structures need to change to become more agile and innovation-focused.

Humanity Works doesn't just explain the fascinating trends of the future of work, it gives you practical guidance on what you can do about the future right now. Cutting edge academic and business thinking is condensed into actionable strategies that leaders can start implementing straight away. Original real life case studies (including Nestle, The Washington Post, Deloitte, and Pepsi), exercises and workplace tools will equip you for staying innovative and ensuring commercial success in the wake of major workplace disruption. Everything hinges on capturing the human edge in your organization.
