In the movie, “Late Night,” actress and screen-play writer Mindy Kaling plays a wide-eyed career-shifter who leaps from her role as an excel-loving project manager in a chemical factory to a comedy writer on a hit television show. The morning of her first day of work as a writer, out of habit, she dresses up in a corporate-style dress. When her younger sister catches our heroine running out the door for her first day at the new job, the tween asks:
“Why are you dressed like you work in HR?”The punch-line landed – a message from Hollywood that even screenwriters recognize that the HR profession is slow in adapting to the work of the future.
It’s time for a little disruption.During my career as a leadership coach and culture change agent, I’ve helped leaders and companies disrupt so they can grow. I now have the chance to share my vision of disruption on the stage in Boston.
