Robots only automate Process, True or False? HR is not ready for the new you?

Augment, Adapt, evolve repeat, maybe the new future use of IOT is to integrate them into humans, cyborgs, if so how will HR cope with the new, well us? Talent Management, HR development will be radically different:

By now unless you live under a rock you get the idea that any future process will be automated. But in the same breath we all think ‘ahhh creativity’, my job is about creativity and I will continue without impact from my metal friends,perhaps, think again:

“i was fortunate to watch this riveting show in Singapore, you start watching the Robot more than the Dancer, you wonder if the Robot could tell the dance what to do, Huang yi sees the robot as an extension to himself”.


” i played for 20 years never got a hole in one”



‘ I want to try my mums apple pie’..

Racing Car Driver

‘Bit boring no crashes, but a true measure between cars what an interesting race.’



‘ Paul has a style all of his own, don’t all artists?’

So in the great words .. if you can’t beat them join them… ‘Cyborg up’!!

So if you can’t code, cant create, and you “wakeup, work, sleep, repeat” then maybe you need to get ahead of the game and well get a  new head. What do you think?

Augment adapt evolve repeat.


‘Average knows nothing higher than itself; but talent instantly sees genius.”


Should Performance management start and end with you? How do you measure yourself, are you: failing, average, a high performer, do you have potential?

‘in short are you self aware?

Leadership will discuss high potential vs high performance in reviews and manage out, diagonally or up accordingly, with the rest left in the middle. Contrast the original performance question with two more;

‘do you want to change or are you actually-

happy just staying put?’

‘does high potential mean you have to-

take a leadership role?’

As Roshan Choxi’s article points out you may have to consider  management just to have a job, as it is the number two opportunity path for a future career, whilst progressively technology automates and  erodes the opportunities of any process role.

Interestingly (in a great article by Adam Vaccaro)

‘According to CEB, 46 percent of employees brought into leadership development programs ultimately fail to meet their business objectives once they assume managerial roles’

So if you think your high potential and even if your company agrees you 46% of the time you and they will be wrong.

So whats the cheery side, maybe there isn’t one, maybe if your happy and you know it you  should stay put, at least for now and take comfort in what Jevons paradox probably implies,  that as technology & our capabilities improve our performance, we will still need to improve our performance, so your job is, well, just getting better whilst you stand still
