The New Paradigms of Work
Would you like to transform your organisation to stay relevant for the unavoidable evolution in the world of work?
The 4C tool is geared towards organisational and personal growth and provides a platform for future proofing skills. Work is evolving at a rapid pace. This is leaving many of us with questions like, “how can we brace ourselves for the inevitable?” Retirement from the job you started in, is almost non-existent nowadays. The New Paradigms of Work uses a new tool that Leah Kitoloh designed and developed. The 4C tool (Celebrate, Connect, Collaborative, Create) helps you to prepare for the unavoidable evolution in the world of work; it is also a purpose-centred tool to enable individuals to remain relevant and active in the rapidly evolving industries in which we work.
Who should attend this workshop?
Anyone who would like to use the 4C tool to bring insights into opportunities, innovation and meaning to our defined purpose. The 4C tool reminds us of the provoking thoughts and daily practices required to deliver and yield desirable results geared towards fulfilling our purpose.
What we will cover:
- Celebrate and define your purpose and align your career and life to this journey. Appreciate and recognise others for their positive contributions.
- Connect more with like-minded individuals. Efficient connections result in foundations of trust that enable environments for inclusivity and collaboration.
- Collaborative practices align your work/life purpose. Successful collaboration exists with trust and conducive/enabling environments.
- Create opportunities to positively contribute towards building a legacy of future-proof skills that can benefit communities, Africa and our future generations.

Demystifying the Human Experience in the evolution of work.
As organisations prepare to be future fit through modernisation of technology they need to look at preparing their workforce to being future fit. Technologies such as AI, robotics, and augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) and autonomous vehicles will challenge existing regulations. These new and disruptive technologies will enable new business engagements that will require new regulatory approaches that are built on open data, conducted in real-time, and dynamically adapt to changing market conditions. These changes all require individuals and organisations to navigate these new paradigms of unprecedented reinvention of work, consumer behaviour and regulation. Organisations and individuals will need to be prepared to be agile and future fit by:
- Job restructuring
- Future skills and talents
- Leadership capabilities that can navigate the new paradigms of work
Know how to build a meaningful, purpose-driven legacy.
True north self- leadership is about knowing who you are and having clarity on what your purpose in life is. Identifying your purpose helps you find personal fulfilment by uncovering, and exploring your authentic self, thereby fulfilling your potential and becoming all you can become. This requires you to establish an intimate understanding of who you are, how you operate, what is important to you, and most importantly, what you need to do to find fulfilment in your life. This journey helps leaders unpack their Purpose and realise their Growth Zone.
Self-efficacy and collaborative practices.
Organisations that drive environments that are diverse and inclusive, enable collaborative practices and innovation. Individuals need look at the skills, talents and capabilities within their team structures to build collaborative practices. Leadership needs to be able to set the stage for this thinking to build team maturity and “collective genius” capabilities. If we are prepared to address the new paradigms of work – we understand that technologies are an augmentation of human innovation.
Understanding digital leadership and necessary future skills.
Being a digital leader requires abilities to transform people and ways of working. This requires organisations to scale digital skills across the business by driving a digital strategy thinking that integrates their digital processes and technologies that are customer centric in results. Leaders need to be agile in their thinking to drive collective genius capabilities on projects as well as ways of work by inspiring their teams and driving benefits of digital transformation.
How to operate in a gig economy.
According to McKinsey, 64 million people in the US and EU use gig work to supplement their main income by choice, rather than necessity. Locally, Statistics South Africa’s employment outlook found that temporary employment rose from 2.6 million in 2017 to 3.9 million in 2018. With the rise in technology modernisation Organisations are often faced with operational remodelling. Perhaps the gig economy could change how organisations remodel to be future fit by introducing gig work where they need to scale down. This however has it’s pros and cons that require individuals to support the organisation in rethinking how to navigate the new paradigms of work. Unpacking this rethinking includes:
- Ability to hire expert skills fit for the scope of work
- Agility to scale workforce up and down to meet business demand
- Individual flexibility to work on what you love
- Reduced cost for managing pay and work spaces
- Challenges in managing and retaining corporate culture and engagement
- Managing employee mobility and access
- Supporting and implementing deliverables of a rapid pace of business change
- Enabling collaboration across business functions
The art of storytelling, shared learning journeys.
Improving business performance often focuses on clearly articulated strategies. Leaders that translate the strategy must simplify what their teams need to execute. This is a brilliant statement but the reality is that this is usually teams are task driven rather than strategic. To enable winning teams that are collectively able to stand in at all levels, the journey to storytelling through coaching and mentoring becomes a necessity. Most teams are mobilised to execute and never get the opportunity to learn about their dynamics and what their combined resume actually looks like. These are the strengths and capabilities that are combined to yield success. If teams have sight of these, they are able to self- manage and prepare for skills that they require collectively. Sports teams share stories of their journey of every game and every trophy. They also analyse their strengths and weaknesses that will play out against other teams.
