Cognizant Future of Work Stage

11:00

From/To: Everything you wanted to know about the future of your work but were afraid to ask

  • Aleksandrs Radčenko, CRM & Digital department head, Cognizant Latvia

Futures are always a reaction to the present; tomorrow is always a judgment on today. By training a microscope on how we work now, we can try to figure out how we’re going to work when this day is done. Though the future of work will always be in the future, the future of your work has never been closer. The rise of robots, machine intelligence, distributed ledgers, quantum physics, “gig” labor, the unexaggerated death of privacy, a world eaten alive by software — all these trends point to a new world that’s shaping up quite differently from anything we’ve ever seen, or worked in, before.

Emotional Intelligence – The Secret to Leadership Success

  • Marko Lepik, Mindfulness Coach, SIY Certified Teacher, Founder, EQversity.com

Emotional Intelligence, EQ or EI, is one of the top skills expected of an effective modern leader. According to research, with IQ and other traits being equal, EQ accounts up to 90% of star performance. Leaders with high EQ understand, use and manage emotions to guide to thinking, behavior and decision making in ways that benefit themselves and those around. The good news is, like any other mental skill, it can be trained. To get a taste of the field, we will be looking at introductory concepts from the Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence program developed at Google under the name SIY by leading experts in neuroscience, business and psychology.

Why attentive team members are the most important resource?

  • Sandra Krisberga-Sinigoi, Founder, Illume / PhD researcher, Cranfield University (UK)

There are no completed things; there are only things in making (James, 1909). World around us is rapidly evolving and becoming more complex. As a consequence, organisations apply into new methods of working in dynamic teams, and Agile is one of those. But, is it enough? Do team members matter? An experimental research recently conducted and its indicative results suggest that teams of people with higher level of mindfulness do perform better and deliver better results. Yet, I avoid using term “mindfulness”, as it instantly is being associated with meditation. Of course, meditation might be a way to it, yet there is more into it. Thus, in my presentation I would like to speak about awareness / attentiveness at modern working place, how it leads to creativity and improved performance. Most importantly will suggest ways how everyone can improve attentiveness in simple and… enjoyable ways.

14:00

Creativity changes culture – the corporate evolution

  • Jürgen Salenbacher, brand strategist, business design thinking coach and innovation facilitator

The increasing flood of information requires new capacities: the ability to filter the information, interpret it and the clarity of vision. That always requires creativity and new emotional qualities, as it impacts human not only intellectually, but also emotionally. It impacts organizations in terms or new structures and work design and eventually, taking into consideration the increasing diversity this new culture brings with it, it impacts the whole society. The challenge is to turn creativity into reality and to facilitate organizational transformation through competence building to become progressive workplaces with engaged workforces. This is a visual journey of first-hand stories into the change of culture and creativity and competence building as key drivers for business impact.

15:00

Happy workplace with biohacking tools

  • Artūrs Bernovskis, Founder, employee productivity platform Efectio.com

In the new era of industrialization, companies are automating their daily routine, which is why the role of employees in the company is changing. Technology replaces people in many places, but it also creates new jobs and jobs where new skills and the work environment play a huge role. For a company to compete in the labor market today, it needs to create a happy job for every employee. Creating a happy workplace with biohacking tools is a prerequisite for successful long-term collaboration between the company and the employee.

  • Boomer Anderson, Partner and Performance Advisor, Decoding Superhuman

Learn the steps needed to personalize your performance.

The Freelance Revolution: why freelancing is the future of work

  • Andris Akmentins, Senior project manager, Toptal

The rise of technology has enabled more people to create their life around their work. A ‘life-first’ attitude is prevalent among millennials and this is quickly impacting all generations as human beings seek to have a fulfilled life, not a ‘work-filled life’. Firms such as Upwork, Freelancer and others are growing at exponential rates as more freelancers join and book projects. Moreover more and more business are looking at building long-term relationships with freelancers who serve as integral and trusted member of in-house teams. Within the next five years, it is predicted that the global workforce will comprise nearly 50% freelancers.

How to stay ahead of AI and automation?

  • Anta Praņēviča, Member of the Board & Head of Research Group, Fontes

Technological advances, government policies, and employee expectations are reshaping what we know as work, while the pace of change continues to accelerate. As artificial intelligence (AI) and automation infuse into everyday life, the opportunities for how people will work and live are significant. But how do we stay ahead? In an age defined by the intersection of artificial and human intelligence, it is more vital than ever that we focus on achieving an equitable, productive, and sustainable future for all. Some of the answers are provided in the Mercer Talents Trend 2019 study. Insights of the report will be provided as well as trends in Latvia will be highlighted. Which of global trends we already feel, which we are most likely going to feel in near future?

How expensive is a cheap chair? Office interior – what kind of investment pays off?

  • Aigars Zelmenis, CEO, Krassky

A study from the University of Edinburgh shows that “office workers spend more time sitting than retirees”, which significantly affects people’s well-being and undermines productivity. In the office of the new generation, the employer is brought to the forefront. Let’s talk about the changing work environment trends, office ergonomics, and investment that definitely pays off.

Authenticity and the power of personality today

  • Linda Saulīte, Leadership Coach and Head, Media Agency VIZEUM

Development Experts mention the authenticity of the 21st century leader as the core competence in the TOP 10 of competencies – the gold standard in effective leadership. What does it mean for authentic leadership? What are the key aspects and benefits of authentic leadership? Why authentic leadership and empathy is defined as one of the most valuable managerial skills today in the technology age? The strength of our authenticity is our personality – our falls, values, abilities, talents, created for you and others. It is not always easy and it requires courage. How to talk to yourself and understand your own values, what is truly important and real. How to understand your strengths and development needs. How to develop courage not to be perfect and why mistakes are needed to make a successful professional and personal development.

How speaking less and listening more can improve communication and decrease negative emotions at the workplace?

  • Krišjānis Ozols, Communication & Partnerships Director & Co-founder, Asya
  • Ēvalds Urtāns, AI researcher & Co-founder, Asya

Words have the power to harm or heal, to inspire or criticize. Mindful communication is about being aware of the choices we are making and of our thinking and reasoning. It’s about developing strong listening skills that lead to empathy and improving the structure of our thoughts to say things with simplicity. It’s also about being in control of our emotions and using them in a thoughtful way. As a result, every word has more impact on our own lives and on the people we talk to. As we grow in the art of mindful communication we become more charismatic and develop great success with people in our daily lives and at work. At asya.ai we are building AI that understands emotional intelligence, helps to develop communication skills in face-to-face conversations, and helps to develop better relationships in real life.

  • Edgards Spuravs , CEO, Riga Coding School

Why colleague degree does not guarantee a job? Why ability to learn is more valued than instant knowledge and experience? What skills are necessary to commit to continuous learning? How intensive courses and individual lectures can help with the life long learning? Riga Coding School will answer to all the why’s & how’s, with a touch of personal experience.
