4 ways to build a human company in the age of machines

HiAll,

Got to watch a beautiful TED talk on “4 ways to build a human company in the age of machines”. So am sharing it here. Do watch it.

To maintain our humanity in the this second Machine Age, we may have no other choice than to create beauty. Beauty is an elusive concept. For the writer Stendhal it was the promise of happiness. For me it’s a goal by Lionel Messi.So bear with me as I am proposing four admittedly very subjective principles that you can use to build a beautiful organization.
First: do the unnecessary.

The second principle: create intimacy.

Third: The risk to be ugly.Be UglyTo be authentic is to be ugly.

Fourth: Remain Incomplete

So to do the unnecessary, to create intimacy, to be ugly, to remain incomplete — these are not only the qualities of beautiful organizations, these are inherently human characteristics. And these are also the qualities of what we call home. And as we disrupt, and are disrupted, the least we can do is to ensure that we still feel at home in our organizations, and that we use our organizations to create that feeling for others.
