Welcome to this episode of the Conversations on Climate podcast. “Net-Zero World: Lynda Gratton on the Future of Work & Sustainability”

The landscape of the modern workplace is experiencing unprecedented evolution.

This rapid transformation, unlike anything witnessed since the industrial revolution, is propelled by factors such as technology, the pandemic, and the pursuit of decarbonisation. These forces are reshaping the rules for every industry, presenting both obstacles and opportunities.

As a leader or an individual seeking to adapt to these changes, where can you turn for guidance? One source of valuable insights is Professor Lynda Gratton, a renowned expert on the future of work and our esteemed guest on the Conversations on Climate podcast.

Professor Gratton serves as the Professor of Management Practice in Organisational Behaviour at London Business School, where she instructs popular courses like ‘Future of Work’ and ‘Strategy in Transforming Companies.’ Beyond her academic pursuits, she is a Council chair at the World Economic Forum, founder of strategy consultancy HSM Advisory, and the author of several award-winning books, including Redesigning Work and The 100 Year Life.

In this episode, Professor Gratton delves into the profound influence of living longer, automation, robots, and artificial intelligence on our lives and underscores the importance of upskilling and reskilling to adapt to these shifts. She also shares her perspective on corporations’ role in addressing climate change and the differences between the selection processes for corporate and political leaders.

Conversations on Climate, produced in association with United Renewables and the London Business School Energy Alumni Club, brings together thought leaders from academia and business to explore a wide array of ideas and solutions to global climate and environmental challenges.
