About the Series 2021-22


The quest for wisdom is timeless.  Explicit attention to wisdom may have faded in modernity but interest is re-igniting across disciplines.

Work is central to our lives. It has the potential for good and ill effects.

This series brings a 21st century wisdom lens to work, hopeful in the possibilities to shape work more wisely if we choose it.

It will be particularly relevant for those involved in leadership and development and will explore the purpose of work, our human experience as workers and the place of work in the wider ecosystem.

Drawing on the experience and research of different contributors there will be lots of opportunity for dialogue on how wisdom can shape what we see and do, to benefit us individually and collectively.

The aim is to generate ideas, insight and practical advice for anyone interested and curious about cultivating wisdom at work.
