Radical has been developing a Radical Purpose Workshop for over a year. The Workshop aims to introduce people to how work can be different if we stop working from the current paradigm of force and start co-creating work to suit human needs.
For far too long, our society has been using force on younger generations. With each generation, the amount of force has continued to increase. We now see force as a way of life and work. It seems natural for us to use force on others — after all, it is used on us.
Many people are working on what we call the future of work, a movement towards making work better. This movement has taken many different shapes. Some have instituted organizational frameworks that operate on the basis of a constitution. Others have created principles of flat, decentralized, or networked organizations. Others still have developed numerous practices to be used by would-be self-managed organizations.
We have learned a lot from these groups, and many have strong followings. However, we feel that a key aspect of the future of work is missing in most, if not all, of these offerings. We believe that the future of how we work does not start with adopting a new constitution or new practices but shifting our view of humanity. We believe that work should not be something that people are forced to do in ways others want but should meet the needs of those who are doing the work.
The Summer Series is a 4 week series of workshops held on Thursdays at 10 am. Each session is focused on an aspect of the Future of Work.
Join us and tell a friend. We promise you have never seen anything like this before. It’s a fresh new look at how the future of work will come about. We will introduce new concepts that will help frame your current situation and how shifting your frame will make the switch more easier and viable.
