The world is transforming at its own pace. People who are thinking to bring out more changes into the system are doing so with the desire for the betterment of humankind. Sadly, often change has been coerced with force and domination tactics.
Can we manifest positive change without forced regulation?
“The changes we want, to enable a better society, must be done by collectively being a part of the betterment program.”
Society 2045 has an ongoing series of interviews with change-makers seeking to improve the way society works.
Society 2045 is a community of people from around the world seeking to co-discover a vision for the year 2045. The goal is to connect with leaders of emerging communities and movements across society and come together to co-create a better future.
We had an interview with Jose Leal and discussed his vision for the year 2045 and how we can improve the condition of community. Jose Leal is a co-founder of Society 2045, RadicalPurpose.org and is Co-Author of the book “RADICAL Companies: Organized for Success without Bosses or Employees.”
The world has been attempting to transform to improve humanity rigorously. For example, the transformation from analogue media to digital media in our hands is a transformation that has taken place over recent years. We now have access to almost limitless information in the palm of our hands.
Being a part of the change is something beautiful. Lending a helping hand to better the human future is productive and a hope of transformation gives us something to look forward to.
However, as a species we’ve always found a way to introduce force to get others to comply to change. This approach has mostly failed and will continue to fail. We need a better way.
The future of everything, be it education, law, or finance, is about transitioning to humanity. This will come by shifting towards motivation to work rather than forcing how the current system works.
Jose Leal envisions the future of work as a place to express thoughts rather than being only a place of work. He anticipates that informed people will change or make a positive difference in the world.
According to Jose Leal, 23 years from now we will experience a transit in people’s minds in a way that will shift their motivation into a catalyst to fulfill a better future. People will instigate the systems towards what needs change.
According to Jose the vision of making a difference in the thought processes of serving society and the community rather than the system, is something that people will broadly understand.
“Perspectives will change, as people develop the motivation to serve humanity.”
The way transportation went from horse and carriages to having cars changed within 20–25 years. The same shift will take place in humanitarian benefit. People will think about working for themselves or in small organizations.
The advantage of having an individual workspace rather than serving organizations is the change that will take place in the future. The change is already taken place now.
The paradigm of working under force in a command-and-control environment to choosing a way to work based on freedom will put the world a step ahead for the ultimate transition to a freer society. The difference is gradually taking place, but more is needed.
People already manifest great things in area of the world where there is a regulation or force and less freedom. Imagine the innovation we could collectively give birth to, with more freedom.
“The motivation and striving for freedom drives people to want to change systems that don’t serve our greater good.”
The Workplace Needs Transformation
We still do not have the freedom to express our opinions in the workplace. Most workplaces drive towards compliance and uniformity. This creates a barrier to innovation and motivates people to want to change the system even more.
We can fuel more innovation and transformation only by creating tools that will suffice the needs of people. Those needs are four-fold:
1) The need for belonging
2) The need for meaning
3) The need to make an impact
4) The need to be becoming
Twenty-three years from now, we will see the changes in society that have already taken place in the minds of the young today. They are questioning their efforts and hard work, in relationship to the wealth of organizations.
Organizations focused only on old legacy goals, will continue to suffer high levels or attrition because younger generations value freedom over controls, meaning over profits, and impact over market share.
According to Jose Leal, the transformation that has taken place in the world historically has been in the form of revolutions. All these changes that are to come, will be by some form of revolution as well.
To change the systems is not an easy task. It needs collaboration. The change needs to bind people with the same drive, and collaboration and communication is the first step.
Working with each other and building up trust is crucial rather than simply having more rules and regulations from the legal framework.
Society 2045 is working to bring people together and realize their vision. They would then have the tools to work out their strategies. They would not be the pawns of the organizations, instead they would enjoy their newly created freedom.
The betterment of humanity relies on how organizations will empower people to express fully their innate gifts, which will foster new levels of innovation.
“The future of work isn’t just a catalyst for better working environments, but rather an opportunity to transform society to be more human centric.”
Jose’s vision of a future of work designed around people’s needs is groundbreaking. It will be amazing if we can achieve his vision in the coming years. Check out the interview here:
