For episode 1 of the HBR video series “The New World of Work”, editor in chief Adi Ignatius sits down with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to discuss rapidly evolving trends in how we collaborate, especially in a hybrid world. Nadella suggests that technology can create a metaverse that will help bridge the virtual and real worlds. He also talks about experiments at Microsoft and elsewhere that ensure both weak and strong ties remain strong in hybrid work, and discusses the overriding power of empathy as a leader and as a catalyst for innovation.
Source: Hardvard Business Review – Few people have more insight than Satya Nadella into how teams collaborate and innovate successfully. HBR editor in chief Adi Ignatius interviewed the Microsoft CEO to discuss what team collaboration will look like going forward, the next generation of workplace technology, the new imperatives of leadership — and whether and when our future workplaces will in fact start to look like the “metaverse” fantasies of science fiction.
This interview is the first in a new video series called “The New World of Work,” which will explore how top-tier executives see the future and how their companies are trying to set themselves up for success.
