Donna excels in the realm of storytelling and uses those skills to propel new companies into the mainstream.
In this episode, Dean Newlund and Donna Loughlin discuss:
- How robots could improve working conditions
- Listening will never be obsolete
- Opening ourselves up to change
- How to be more innovative
- Robots are not taking our jobs but there are jobs that robots are very willing to take, jobs that are either too tedious or too dangerous for human beings.
- You can never take the human factor out of industry and life. Only people have the ability to listen, understand, and have empathy for others. Making decisions and other cognitive functions are other examples.
- We need to have more gratitude and less attitude. Be open to change and to conversations especially when there are differences in opinions.
- Surround yourself with talented people. Ask questions and learn from others. Know your talents and apply them.
“Robots can perform tasks and can do some miraculous things. But they can’t replace our cognitive thinking, human engagement, and interaction.” — Donna Loughlin
