Hybrid work is disruptive design. It “employs systems thinking…cognitive and behavioral sciences…ideation and design thinking to create activated approaches for making a positive impact in the world” (Acaroglu, 2016). This creative changemaking happening in our workplaces and in our lives allows us the opportunity to redesign and unlearn ways of working we’ve held onto for nearly a century. In tandem we are re-examining work–life balance. It has often been perceived as a conflict, instead of viewed as work–life integration with the balance constantly shifting (Wang, 2015). We are in a time where reframing and unlearning is at the forefront, and how we respond to this integration will dictate whether we can level the playing field in this new world of work.
Join us on Friday, September 17, 12:00pm-1:30pm ET/9:00am-10:30am PT for our monthly Design Museum LIVE virtual event. Disruptive Design: Work-Life Balance in a Hybrid Environment will start with an interactive movement exercise, followed by a panel discussion with Sheena Collier, Founder and CEO of The Collier Connection (TCC); Jon Levy, Behavioral Scientist, Author, and Founder of The Influencers; Dimitrios Lagias, Partner in the Seattle office of The Boston Consulting Group. The conversation will be moderated by Tom Di Lillo, Regional Sales Manager, New England at Steelcase. We’ll close out the program with a reflection exercise.
