By Dan Hammond, Chief Disruption Officer, LIW

A while ago I saw a list of jobs that were safest from the advance of technology.  Among them were physical fitness instructors.

This week, I went to a hotel gym. I sat on a spin bike, it invited me to sign in and before I knew it I was part of a virtual spin class led by a Miss Ali Love. I found myself competing against Scott in Virginia.  He annihilated me, but the experience was personal, thrilling and exhausting!

Also this week, I read some research that revealed that pharmaceutical execs believe themselves to be least likely to be disrupted. A workshop with a pharma team revealed the opposite – disruption is inevitable.

What does this mean for leadership?

Simple.  You are not immune from disruption or from the excitement of being the disruptor!
