In the Future of Work, Age is Irrelevant

In the Future of Work, Age is Irrelevant | Leadership Development, Selection & Training | Scoop.it
How we view age is about to shift radically. Think about it, we’re seeing huge advances in work-based technologies, and we’re facing a massive wave of retiring baby boomers. What this means is we will see age fade significantly as a key factor in judging talent. What will matter is adding value.

Excerpt: "When a new work group forms, people often make snap judgments about who is qualified to lead. If the players don’t already know one another, they tend to afford status to teammates on the basis of factors such as age, gender, race, attractiveness, and rank.  Anyone, the authors say, can achieve higher status and more influence by getting in the right mind-set before engaging with new teammates.


There are three psychological states that can increase the optimism, confidence, and proactive behavior that people associate with leaders: promotion focus (defined as a focus on goals and positive outcomes), happiness, and a feeling of power. And all it takes to help you enter one of these states is a simple five-minute exercise before starting a group task: Write about your ambitions or a time when you felt happy or powerful.

Practice makes perfect and repetition builds habit. However, we all too often build bad habits through a failure to reflect on our actions. Within each of us lies the power to build positive habits based upon successful introspection and learning!

John Michel's curator insight, May 15, 2014 3:49 PM

In life, there are leaders, and there are followers. If you’re not leading, you need to figure out who you’re following. Take a look at your leader and be honest, because if they match too many of these traits, you’re following the wrong leader. Be careful when judging, however, because it’s always possible the problem is actually you.
