The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.


One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Be on a mission that doesn't suck

Be on a mission that doesn't suck | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re job hopping, serially starting companies, or constantly burned out, ask yourself: why is this happening? Chances are, it’s as simple as not being on a mission that you care about. When you’re really doing something you love, stress can actually improve productivity (this isn’t necessarily founded in science, just personal observation), whereas when you’re drudging along, stress compounds an already adverse circumstance.


So what makes a mission that doesn’t suck?


The best missions, it would seem, are those keep you cranking day after day. They’re ambitious, improbable, and fundamentally thrilling. Some of the loftiest are missions that can never quite be fulfilled. Google’s famously is “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Starbucks wants to “inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” Whole Foods believes that“companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as tenants of Planet Earth.”

Good question Jean-Phillipe. In my experience, things like possible organizational changes or possible layoffs are the types of issues that can lead to lots of fear. My guiding light is to talk openly about the reality the team is facing and what is being done about it. It is key to make it safe for staff to openly share their concerns and address their concerns openly. The opposite will result in negative watercooler talk and growing distortions that make everything worse. Big topic here.
Jean-Philippe D'HALLUIN's comment, January 10, 2013 4:37 PM
Thank You Al for your point of view. Conscious fear may be acceptable only if followed by positive transformal action.

All mankind is in bondage. Each faith is slavery (and unlimited faith in the power of love). Yes every so-called "giving a heart full of love" (not because we think we can, but because we want), every religion, every church, every synagogue, every such temple is nothing but a prison with open doors. A door to them are deliberately open so provoked in you the illusion that you are not in jail. And what will happen when i close this door?

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership

Meditating Your Way To More Effective Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it


The Drucker School of Management and Wharton Business School both offer courses in mindfulness meditation. Virginia Tech is sponsoring "contemplative practices for a technological society," a conference for engineers who integrate contemplative disciplines into their work. Google offers courses in meditation and yoga


Aetna, Merck, General Mills--the list goes on--all are exploring how meditation can help their leaders and employees agilely thrive in today's fast-paced business environment. And the benefits are widely publicized: sustained attention span, improved multi-tasking abilities, strengthened immune system, increased emotional intelligence, improved listening skills...And there is science behind such claims.

Jem Muldoon's curator insight, February 15, 2013 4:15 PM

When top business schools highlight the importance of mindfulness with courses for future leaders, we now have precedence for including it in educational leadership training.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 15, 2013 7:01 PM

I like the ideas that mindfulness is combined with Peter Drucker's work and that large companies are looking at meditation as something that will benefit employees.

Lauran Star's curator insight, March 19, 2013 11:43 AM

What really happens when we meditate? How can such a simple act of sitting still actually cultivate agile, talented leaders? Read this article to learn more.

5 Ways to Lead with Emotional Intelligence -- and Boost Productivity

5 Ways to Lead with Emotional Intelligence -- and Boost Productivity | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

More emotional intelligence, is what our world strongly need. This excellent post say all what you need to know about this subject. [note Martin Gysler]


Employees today are much more aware of whether or not they are a good fit in their workplace culture and they want their leaders to be more mindful of their needs. In general, employees have become more sensitive about how to best co-exist in a workplace environment that allows them to be who they naturally are.


Employees are tired of playing games and just want to be themselves. As such, they are managing their careers and looking to advance by searching for jobs that truly fuel their passion, fulfill their desires, and ignite their real talent. For most, today’s economic landscape has made the career management journey extra challenging. And beyond career advancement opportunities, people want their supervisors and leaders to be more in touch with who they are as people (not just as their colleagues) to assure that their career track is in proper alignment with and supports their personal and professional goals.

Many business leaders don't care why employees do anything as long as they follow the company's rules, processes, cultural norms and laws. But we've found that leaders can create and sustain stronger business results if they understand — and manage — how employees approach their work every day.
