    I developed a course for our newly appointed Executives (SES), and the expected changes in technology alone are incredible. While you're getting dressed, your schedule for the day appears on your mirror, and a voice will review it for you, complete with background if needed, on a prior meeting or info about a person you'll be meeting - virtually of course. Virtual meetings happen with a touch of a button, not cumbersom at all.  The factors I found that are already coming into play that are expected to change the workplace are:

    1.   Millenials. They want speed, flexibility, and autonomy.

    2. Expanded Corporate Social Responsibility. Corporations will have to demonstrate not only that they are "green," but that they donate in some way to help those in need to get the best and brightest employees.

    3. Digital Workplace.

    4. Globalization. Sharing, collaborating, and partnering on a world-wide basis.

    5. Shifting workplace demographics. For the first time ever we will have five generations in the workplace at the same time. The differences between the oldest and the youngest expectations are tremendous.

    In thinking about who our emerging leaders will be in 20 years, I think about who are they looking up to today?  Most young people tend to be more and more libertarian.  They are growing up in a world of extremes and yet greater diversity. For example fewer families are joining organized churches, more children are home schooled or are enrolled in charter schools.  Children today have peers with disabilities, two dads or moms, they are aware of transgender issues.  In public schools there are peer mentoring, leadership, mediation, conflict resolution programs.  The world is a smaller, more accessible place.  Kids are starting corporations, production companies, internet comedic and singing and dancing talented celebrities. At a planning meeting, Melynda Benlemlih described this upcoming generation as the "Yes I Can" generation.  Given the fact that most movies in theater are fantasy (Comic-Con) means that this generation are focused on the possibilities of what doesn't but might exist. And most likely, they are going to build it.

    “Mindlessness is the application or yesterday’s business solutions to today’s problems.

    Mindfulness is the attunement of today’s demands to avoid tomorrow’s difficulties.”

    Karen Langer, Social Psychologist
