MISSION CONTROL |

Setting an Open Course for Industry 4.0

“If it wasn’t for seasickness, all the world would be sailors!”– Charles Darwin

Welcome, mate, welcome to #evolve. What in the dickens is #evolve, you may ask, and why should I care? Let’s set sail on our maiden mission, shall we?

#evolve is a vessel for change and a catalyst for digital nomads, rambunctious associates and principled leaders. It’s a celebration of corporate social responsibility, bold executive decisions and atypical organizational practices.

#evolve is a springboard for rethinking behaviors, reimagining the employee experience and reinventing the wheels of enterprise. It’s a therapeutic investment in positive business outcomes through personal and professional development.

#evolve is not a magazine. It’s a challenge to the traditional definition of work.

#evolve is a collection of voices representing a multigenerational workforce hungry for the deliverables of well-being, purpose and inclusion.

#evolve is a “get out of jail free” card for diligent worker bees whose appetite for innovation is suppressed by myopic managers, burdensome processes and conventional wisdom.

#evolve is a workplace revolution, an aspirational journey and an embodiment of self-discovery.

This mission statement may sound hyperbolic but we’re not here for the bells and whistles. We’re here to explore uncharted territories and help Industry 4.0 accelerate.

This is not the time, nor the climate, for “the same old.” We’re not here to provide formulas, steps and rules. (That role, in part, still rests with our sister periodicals, Workspan andWorldatWork Journal.) We’re here to expand the minds and capture the hearts of cube farm voyagers, misguided crew chiefs and trailblazers at the helm.

We’re here to serve and enlighten — and perhaps even delight — our fellow passengers. We’re here to reskill each and every one of us (yes, us), one sail at a time.

As you dive into this inaugural issue, you’ll note a leadership theme spearheaded by women. The cover story by Jane Larson is a refreshing look at four women who’ve overcome the odds to scale the corporate ladder and become successful executives.

###

To reiterate the sentiment of Maureen Berkner Boyt’s piece, “good intentions” are not enough when it comes to diversity and inclusion. What remains frustrating is the ongoing demand for all to beat the drum — loudly — about the underrepresentation of women and minorities in leadership. This remains a serious societal and worldwide problem that we’ll continue fighting with stories (and insights) that reflect the strength and courage it takes to effect change. 

Thank you for reading, and most of all, for caring.

P.S. Be sure to check out the debut “Mentoring Matters” column by Katharine Voyles Mobley. It offers the sage advice of raising the bar of mentorship by sponsoring employees for opportunities and recognition within your organization. That’s one way of being a true advocate and owning the outcome!
