What’s new 12/5/07: Talent, Community, Visual Thinking

At this year’s Future of Talent Conference, we repurposed the 120-year History of Corporate and Executive Education map to capture past and forecast future trends in the workforce.

The big trend of today: “it’s all about ‘you’” — the future? Creating a new sense of workplace community to overcome the other side of extreme individualism: alienation, lack of context, disconnection. Organized by Global Learning Resources’ Kevin Wheeler, the conference included recruiters and talent leaders from Fortune 100 companies, unversities, and nonprofit organizations. A white paper “Future of Talent: Insights from Asilomar” will be available early 2008.
