Work Is A 4-Letter Word
Work Is A 4-Letter Word - S1E4: Polymaths & Plastics
In an age of technological and ideological disruptions, the idea of the polymath is gaining traction. Policy-maker, scholar, and futurist Aaron Maniam tests this hypothesis, which posits that humans can thrive in the future of work - if we can gain the right supplementary skills to complement the one core skill we have. Four individuals - the managing director of Mothercare, a data scientist at dining platform Chope, a gig economy artist, and a freelance yoga teacher - take on growth hacks over four months, so that they may discover latent passions, think laterally, and connect dots to solve wicked problems in an increasingly complex world. Kevin Kelly of Wired Magazine, and Nicole Lazzaro of XEOdesign and advisor to the White House, feature.
