Mark Savickas on Life Designing

I saw Mark Savickas speak at the recent Larios conference. I didn’t agree with everything he said but it is a tremendous performance.

I feel that there is a lot of stuff about “change” which has a slightly ahistorical feel. Lots of what Savickas says about organisations and social and career structures only existed for a relatively short time (perhaps the end of the Second World War to the oil crisis). His new epoch of career management therefore might not be so new after all. Having said that it is also important to recognise that people still do exist within social and organisational structures and that these things place constraints on our life designing.

I’d liked to have had more of a chance to ask him questions, but despite some disagreements, it is well worth watching.
