Deb Westphal is CEO of Toffler Associates, a dynamic and future-focused strategic consulting and advisory firm that helps organizations build resilience and sustain growth in a complex global landscape. She’s a Futurist and Executive Advisor.

In this episode, Audrey, Lee and Deb discuss: 

  • The difference between a traditional organization and a “Human-centric” organization
  • How a culture that puts people first can counter the future wave of artificial intelligence
  • The five shifts managers need to know that control how people work together
  • How to hire managers who are early tech adopters and can work well with machines

"The evolution will advance in such a way that we start to think of these machines as teammates versus technology applications."
