About Me & Content Submission
About this blog & content submission:
To answer some frequently asked questions, I’m neither a human resources professional nor a coach. As I’ve been receiving content submissions, I’ll clarify that the focus of this blog isn’t people development. My interest (from the standpoint of a futurist) is in understanding our situation as it is and the way the future develops. On this note, I’m interested in exploring and understanding the alternatives we have before us. (Oh, and no, I’m not a member of Generation Y.)
This blog addresses how technological advances change the way we work as well as adaptive strategies and solutions intended for organizational leaders, managers, and individuals. This blog presents and reviews literature focusing on the following topics:
- Challenges posed by globalization and the digital economy
- Future work trends
- Implementing a remote work system (a/k/a telework or workshifting)
- Alternatives to the 9-to-5 job
About the blogger:
Lynn Patra is an entrepreneur adviser at Crowdsourcia.com. Her interests include keeping up on the latest, cutting-edge trends and changes in the world of work in the Information Age.
She has been a lifelong learner in Psychology since age 11 culminating in a M.A. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and some doctoral-level coursework in Social Psychology. Thereafter, she independently studied comparative (animal), evolutionary, and personality psychology (including genetic roots of personality) as well as what related issues signify about the need for suitable work roles and working conditions.
UPDATE Sept 30, 2017: There will be an extra blog administrator to help me run a tight ship in response to OFF-TOPIC blog comments (particularly of the political nature).
