Disruption: The New World of Work!

We are in a brawl with few rules, where the fast, adaptive, and those moving quickly will remove the slow, over-thinking, and complacent. In the past, change was sporatic, lasting for only a short time, and gradual.  Now, change is constant as business, technology, and society itself continue to evolve at an unprecedented pace that will only accelerate. Talent, ideas, speed and distinction are keys to winning in the New World of Work.

Individuals, teams, and organizations that fail to develop a distinct ‘brand’ and separate themselves from the pack in this New World of Work will find themselves vulnerable, uncomfortable, and at the mercy of other people, events, or the competition. The waters of change are unnerving for many. But the fact is they will only become more turbulent. For organizations and employees who are unprepared, the future will be devastating.

Employers, customers and clients (external and internal) have an abundance of choices today. What would draw someone to you? What makes you different? What are you doing to leverage these forces in order to grow, adapt, innovate, and thrive in the future?

For individuals, say hello to the age of self-determination. The days of 25-35 years with one employer and a gold watch retirement are long gone. The era of ‘entitlement’ is history.

Today it is about your ability to effectively answer these  4 questions:
1. Who are you? What makes you distinctive in this ‘sea of sameness?’
2. How are you dramatically unique or different?
3. How do you make a significant difference, or create an astonishing overt benefit?
4. What is/are your reason/s why anyone should believe in you? Convince me!

What will it take for a team or department to avoid the possibility of being ‘outsourced’ or eliminated? Staying competitive, streamlined, flexible, and innovative is paramount in the New World of Work. Teams and departments are coming under intense scrutiny. Can the work be done faster, cheaper and better on the outside? Savvy leaders know they must adopt new strategies and innovate to stay ahead.

Please internalize this – Individuals, teams, departments and organizations are depreciating assets. What made us successful in the past is not the ticket to the success in the future. You are a depreciating asset…
AND, You must invest…
AND, You must have a renewal investment plan…
AND, That plan must be formal…
AND, You must schedule routine personal, team and departmental
‘Brand You’ audits.
Create a CAUSE, not a business.
