This week I am thrilled to welcome Mike Walsh to the show. Mike is the CEO of Tomorrow, a global consultancy on designing companies for the 21st century. A global nomad, futurist, and author of the bestselling book, The Algorithmic Leader, he advises some of the world’s biggest organizations on digital transformation and disruptive innovation in this new era of machine intelligence. Mike is also a prolific writer and commentator, whose views have appeared in a wide range of international publications including the Harvard Business Review, Inc. Magazine, BusinessWeek, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal.
Each week he interviews provocative thinkers, innovators, and troublemakers on his podcast, Between Worlds, and his latest book, The Algorithmic Leader: How to be smart when machines are smarter than you, offers a hopeful and practical guide for reinventing leadership and organizations. Mike's other books include Futuretainment (winner of the design award by the Art Director’s Club in New York), published by Phaidon, and The Dictionary Of Dangerous Ideas.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… individuals, innovators, leaders, start-ups, organizations, and brands.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Mike talks about innovation, disruption, and the algorithms of leadership. He also expounds on the inherent biases in algorithms, the far-reaching implications of critical design-choices, the necessity of granularity in data anthropology, the future of automation, and what it is that drives decision-making and should drive it moving forward. It is a riveting and future-facing conversation that is incredibly timely as we live through a civilization-scale, disrupting event that has touched virtually every part of the globe.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… his ability to use stories to share future use cases of technology.
