We are entering a day and age, my friend, where you are going to have to rethink everything you knew about government, about big corporations, and about yourself.”
– Trond Undheim
In this episode of OneTAKE Live, join host Ian Barkin as he discusses the long-term future of remote work amid the COVID-19 pandemic with Trond Undheim, author, futurist, CEO, and co-founder of Yegii, Inc.
2020 was a gamechanger. The emergence of COVID-19 has irrevocably altered the way we interact — and do business — going forward. But as we look ahead, what will all of the changes we make today mean for the future of work? Will things ever go back to normal?
To find out, we asked Trond Undheim. A brilliant author and futurist, Trond believes that the duty of rebuilding our societal framework will be a precarious one filled with concessions, trade-offs, and complex problems. To “win” the pandemic, according to Undheim, the leaders of today will need to carefully plan for the long term.
“In making those trade-offs, if you don’t take the long-term view, you’re making a trade-off that hurts you.” Trond explains. “Let one thing slip and you’re opening the door to a scenario you don’t want.”
In addition to predicting the future and writing groundbreaking books, Trond Undheim is the CEO and co-founder of Yegii, Inc., as well as the host of the podcast Futurized. He has written and released two books this year: Pandemic Aftermath and Disruption Games, in which he analyzes the past and present to make informed predictions about what’s coming next. Undheim’s next book, currently titled Future Tech, is slated for release in March 2021.
