Episode #1285
September 2nd, 2020
COVID-19 has been and remains a major adaptive challenge for every person and organization. It has illuminated how hard it is for us to adapt our routines, our ways of being and our ways of working — emotionally, cognitively and behaviorally. Ed Hess argues that with the advancement of technology, the need for humans to excel at adaptation will not go away when COVID-19 is contained. Quite to the contrary, human adaptation will be imperative. Workers will be forced to become “hyper-learners” (a person who excels at learning, unlearning and relearning at the pace of change). Hess spent more than 20 years in the business world as a senior executive and in 2007, joined the faculty of the Darden Business School as the first Batten Executive-in-Residence. He’s been featured in Forbes, the Financial Times, Wired, The Washington Post and more.
