#FutureLeaders ~helping students lead positive change

#FutureLeaders is the first step in providing a generation of young people with a framework of leadership development tools that challenge the status quo in our society.

 

As you may know, our schools and workplace cultures are plagued by bullying, negative bias and disengagement.  

 

Our goal is to and help students leverage the natural talents while learning how to use authority and popularity to help others and lead positive change in their schools, places of work and their families.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Positive futures | 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.

Tom Hood's curator insight, September 6, 8:27 AM

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

The Personal Brand in Driving Success

The Personal Brand in Driving Success | Positive futures | Scoop.it

Defining your proposition and message, and living up to it, will contribute powerfully to your career progression. And when you get to the top, don’t think you need to change your approach.  Brands exist in the hearts and minds of the people who use them, and if you suddenly try to change them, you alienate the customer, which doesn’t do you an awful lot of good.

Systems Thinking and the Future of Cities

Systems Thinking and the Future of Cities | Positive futures | Scoop.it

The idea that nothing exists in isolation−but only as part of a system−has long been embedded in folklore, religious scriptures, and common sense. Yet, systems dynamics as a science has yet to transform the way we conduct the public business. This article first briefly explores the question of why advances in systems theory have failed to transform public policy. The second part describes the ways in which our understanding of systems is growing−not so much from theorizing, but from practical applications in agriculture, building design, and medical science. The third part focuses on whether and how that knowledge and systems science can be deployed to improve urban governance in the face of rapid climate destabilization so that sustainability becomes the norm, not the occasional success story.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, September 11, 12:54 PM

This article is a little different than most articles curated for everyday leadership, but is relevant from the perspective that leaders have to consider their entire environment and situation.  A systems approach to leading is indispensible for enabling better decisions and exercising effective influence among the people of one's situation or organization.  In this example, the focus is on the future of cities, but a leader could be focused on the strategy, vision, and objective, and so the concepts in this article are pertinent to your everyday leadership.  Think big! Think system!

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

The post-job economy | Harold Jarche

The post-job economy | Harold Jarche | Positive futures | Scoop.it

"Many MOOC’s are based on an educational model that has a curriculum from a body of knowledge that, so the logic goes, when mastered will prepare someone for meaningful work. Improving one’s education to get a job is often a primary motivator for participation. It’s the way the system has worked for decades. The “job” was the way we redistributed wealth, making capitalists pay for the means of production and in return creating a middle class that could pay for mass produced goods. That period is almost over. America has hit peak jobs TechCrunch informs us. The New York Times calls it  the rise of the permanent temp economy. The recession, combined with technology, is killing middle class jobs, reports the Associated Press.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 26, 2013 7:26 PM

Jon Kabat-Zinn recently said humans need a Job. This is similar to the thinking of Thomas Merton and Parker Palmer. Meaningful work gives meaning to life, makes us complete, and is a calling or vocation. It is not doing someone else's work. The latter is oppressive and demeaning. Victor Frankl proposed life has transcendant elements and our calling should do that.
