The New Executive: Leadership in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

The New Executive: Leadership in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

What are the qualities required for leadership in the future? Intelligence? Conscientiousness? Not quite. This book offers a rather counterintuitive answer—dictatorship. A true Machiavellian is the next leader.  

That day might come before long, when hyper intelligent machines start to wipe out human workers. We often talk about securing jobs for these workers, who would be unable to adapt, but what about leaders? Will they stay the same way as before? The answer is likely “no,” as strongly emphasized in this book. The future requires a different kind of leader, namely, power leader who can do what machines cannot do—to decide, command and demand. Such power is often viewed negatively in our society, but it will become a positive characteristic that our leaders will need to acquire. But how? The answer is to be found in here.

The New Wave of Nomadic Workers

The New Wave of Nomadic Workers

Though the term nomad worker often brings to mind images of those traveling with the seasons from one manual-labor based job to another, a new form of white collar nomadic workers is steadily growing on a global scale. We can divide these nomads into two types:

  1. Nomadic workers cross geopolitical borders and boundaries as members of corporations or as individuals in order to work.
  2. Corporations and individuals whose workplace is not centrally located, allowing them to work anywhere in the world.

With these two kinds of workers increasing year by year, how do we as members of society deal with these changes? What can we do to survive in such a rapidly changing world?

Author Oishi, a leader and researcher at the “Nomad Research Center,” documents the careers, businesses, work and lifestyles of those living in Southeast Asia. This illuminating volume on the ins and outs of nomadic working styles is filled with hints on how to adapt to this new working style, how to raise children well-equipped to become nomads themselves and more.

The Next Move, Unbounded

The Next Move, Unbounded

In 2020, where do you imagine yourself living and working? The time of global mobility has come. 

The age of globalism is much criticized for what it has done to the local market and employment; but it has also brought us great benefits—global mobility. In the 21st century, being a global citizen is not just an abstract ideal. There are a lot of people who have already moved onto this stage, and now it’s your turn.  Don’t let where you’re born be the sole determinant of your future. 

The Next Life, Unbounded is a collection of interviews with people who moved away from Tokyo or Japan altogether. Being away from one of the “centers” of the world, Tokyo, each interviewee pursues an ideal life of his or her own. This book is a realistic account on pros and cons of such lifestyle, and opens up the possibility for the next, unbounded move for you!

Regardless of nation or creed, those with the power to go above and beyond have the power to change tomorrow.

The skill needed most to get through the hardships plaguing us in the dawn of the 21st century is true leadership.

Though the word leadership tends to invoke images of managing and keeping a group together, true leadership is much more than that. A true leader is ready for any challenge that lies before them, is determined to solve any problem standing in their way and is not afraid to break free from the norm. These are the skills that will allow you to go above and beyond. Leaders are innovators, not instructors.

Using examples of famous historical figures such as Meiji era visionary Ryoma Sakamoto and Steve Jobs, one of the most innovative personalities in the world of modern computing, Asahina provides concrete examples and advice for readers who strive to be more influential.
