Narratives for the Future of Working

We need radically new stories to create the planetary culture we want to live and work in.

 

Most of our current political, social and socio-economic systems will no longer provide feasible solutions in the future.

 

We can no longer rely on old narratives and cannot simply adjust to the new times.

 

We need radical new approaches to creating meaningful activity for the quickly growing population on this planet.

Six Ways to Boost Morale That Won't Cost You a Dime | Collaborative Growth | Scoop.it
A valued employee is a happy employee. We think we know what our employees want. In order to keep employees happy, we need to offer competitive wages and benefits. Sounds simple, right? Wrong. A recent study by Accenture reports that a whopping 43% of the workforce cites ‘lack of recognition’ as the [...]

New research suggests the more you try to dictate how and when employees work, the less they will accomplish.

Contrary to the instinct of micromanagers everywhere, watching over your employees' shoulders and dictating where and when they should work is perhaps the worst tactic for productivity.

The new role of leaders: inspire and empower belief

The new role of leaders: inspire and empower belief | Collaborative Growth | Scoop.it

When Alfred Sloan created the modern corporation at General Motors, he based it on the military.  The company was split into divisions, each with its own leadership. Information flowed up, orders went down and your rank determined your responsibility.

The model was designed to implement strategy from the top and move men and materiel efficiently.  It assumed that leaders had better nderstanding than those on the lower rungs.  Managers made plans and foot soldiers carried them out.

 

Strategy in the 21st century has become less directed and more emergent.  Even the military relies less on plans and more on commander’s intent.  Corporate chieftains are following suit, experimenting with management structures such as holocracy.  Yet we need to do more than simply change policies and practices, leadership itself must be redefined

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work | Collaborative Growth | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on it’s that the world of work is changing…quickly. The way we have been working over the past few years is NOT how are we are going to be working in the coming years. Perhaps one of the most important underlying factors driving this change is the coming shift around who drives how work gets done.

Why the Future of Work Is Already Here

Why the Future of Work Is Already Here | Collaborative Growth | Scoop.it

It's a beautiful afternoon as I write this post at the Dineen coffee shop in Toronto. I'm also instant-messaging a co-worker in New York City, about to get on a Skype call with our community manager in the Netherlands, and sending an email to our development team in Paris. 

Some may think this isn't an organized and efficient way to operate a growing company, but to us this is the future of work. Many of the greatest companies in the 21st century, including Virgin, 37signals, and IBM, have built successful businesses by providing people the freedom to work where they want, when they want, and how they want. Here's why: You get sh#t done. Shorter commutes, private offices, and flexible work hours mean less time wasted, more-productive work hours, and increased happiness amongst employees.

In 2013 researchers at Stanford University conducted a study by randomly assigning employees at a call center to work from home and others to work in the office for nine months. They found a 13-percent performance increase in those working from home, of which 9 percent was from working more hours.

Some employers criticize working remotely because they find it difficult to measure the number of hours that their employees are working. What they forget is that going into the office does not equal productive work.

Open your company's doors and let the machines in - the economy depends on it

Open your company's doors and let the machines in - the economy depends on it | Collaborative Growth | Scoop.it

Most of the jobs that allowed our ancestors to earn a living no longer exist, replaced by machines, but more people work than ever before. Capitalism is a process of creative destruction, as the Austrian economist Joseph Schumpeter famously put it. Lumbering, seemingly unassailable corporate giants eventually wither, elbowed aside by fresher, hungrier start-ups; modern technologies disrupt long-established industries; and, perhaps most terrifyingly of all, once-useful skills become redundant, replaced by new roles, jobs and opportunities. It’s scary but it works. Change has been with us since the Industrial Revolution ended centuries of debilitating human stagnation. It is painful in the short-term but rewarding for society over the long-term, fuelling rising living standards. That is why we shouldn’t worry that a super-computer has managed to fool experts into thinking that it was a 13-year-old boy, a milestone in the development of artificial intelligence. The story has prompted all of the usual misplaced angst from those who believe that machines will eventually take all of our jobs, including nice, well-paid middle-class ones. But the evidence of the past 220 or so years shows that such fears, though perhaps understandable, are misplaced. Most of the jobs that allowed our ancestors to earn a living no longer exist, replaced for the most part by machines of various kinds, but more people in the UK work than ever before. It is not just the volume of work that has gone up: today’s roles are cleaner, safer and pay hugely more.
