Don’t be afraid of new technologies: be curious!

“Technology has always interested me, which is why I work for a tech company. But today all leaders are obligated to understand, if not how new technologies are built, then, at a minimum, their impacts,” says JP. “It’s hard to see how you can stay sharp in the business world today without understanding technological impacts on customer behaviors, value chains, collaboration, and so on. Whether you’re in tech, luxury, transportation, pharmaceuticals, banking, every single industry is being impacted.” JP tries to keep up with new technologies by reading and going to technology events, mentioning a keen interest currently in what’s happening around self-driving vehicles. “But,” he says, “I definitely know more about the technologies with direct impacts on my industry, like machine learning.”
