Get ready for the mind-bending second episode of The IVY Podcast! According to LRN CEO Dov Seidman, the world is being reshaped faster than we’ve been able to reshape ourselves, including our institutions, our businesses, and our leadership. The implications are profound and the imperatives are moral in nature. This episode is an amazing opportunity for rising leaders and entrepreneurs to learn how to survive and thrive in what Dov calls a “More Human Economy”. The technological revolution of the 21st century is as consequential as the scientific revolution, he argues, and it is “forcing us to answer a most profound question — one we’ve never had to ask before: ‘What does it mean to be human in the age of intelligent machines?’” The answer, according to Dov, evolves around the one thing machines will never have: “a heart.”
Praised by Fortune Magazine as the “hottest advisor on the corporate virtue circuit,” Dov has built a career around the idea that the most principled businesses are the most profitable and sustainable. In this illuminating discussion, Dov shares surprising insights from his research on the role trust, purpose and values play in a world where machines can now out-think, out-process and out-perform us. Dov is the Founder and CEO of LRN, which launched in 1994 to “help people around the world do the right thing.” Twenty plus years later, LRN has helped to shape winning organizational cultures inspired by sustainable values in hundreds of companies with over 20 million people working in over 100 countries. Dov’s best-selling book, HOW, elaborates on the mission of LRN. He will guide us through an in-depth conversation about the need to elevate our thinking and behaviors.
