Is Entitlement Among Millennials Overblown?

Is Entitlement Among Millennials Overblown? | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
New research suggests we may be exaggerating the generation gap in the workplace.
Tom Hood's insight:

Having the privilege of working across all of the generations in a professional association (CPAs), I think the "generational issues" are more a function of how technology and the workplace have changed over the last decade.

 

As we move from "command and control" environments to "connect and collaborate", there are significant differences that manifest themselves in the workplace. These differences seem to coincide with the age groups identified across generations.

 

I find your research that three in five millennials want to learn from their managers is spot on, if not even higher. However, when they say that, they often comment that it is difficult to get their senior managers to "listen" and appreciate their perspectives.

 

At the end of the day, your article comes back to the right answer, "Becton says, to build office practices flexible enough to suit a variety of personalities."

 

Herein is the answer, we need to listen more, create environments that foster better communication and collaboration. As we discovered in our big "generational symposium" (http://cpa.tc/2un), talk to each other!

 

What do you think? Is this generational thing overblown? Or are there real differences we need to work on?

Leading the Multigenerational Finance Department - Deloitte CFO - WSJ

Leading the Multigenerational Finance Department - Deloitte CFO - WSJ | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
Tom Hood's insight:

70% 0f CFOs agree that finding and keeping the right talent is their #1 issues according to WSJ CFO - Deloitte.


CFOs are finding their current staff skills lacking. In fact, in the 4Q2011 survey, 75% of CFOs said their staffs needed stronger analytical skills, 60% needed better political acumen and almost half required facilitation skills and macro­economic knowledge.


This skill and talent shortage is further complicated by the changes in leadership and learning as a result of the generational issues in the workplace today. Sound familiar?

Tom Hood's insight:

Great post. Thought-provoking, inspiring and I love the metaphor of the chef's who are adding their unique flair to the standard recipes. Even better is the Drucker to Perlman evolution of knowledge worker to knowledgeable networker. I love this term as it denotes the constant acquisition of knowledge (think L>C) and the building of relationships as the "networker"

 

The description of a "new organizational model" is what I believe is meant by the new term "social business" and the principles are spot on:

 

- A dispersed workforce motivated by a common purpose

- A permeable structure allowing for collaboration with and access to the knowledge of others both within and without the artificial boundaries of the company

- Self-organising groups focused on getting things done, delivering products, realising benefits and creating value

- A workforce comprised of adaptable employees who truly adopt matrix working practices. That is, individuals who are able to lead, to follow, to contribute expertise across multiple projects and activities, and to facilitate the learning of others - often fulfilling all of these roles on any given day

-A group of people willing to take a risk and foster both their own creativity and that of others.

 

In the US CPA (Certified Public Accounting) Profession, we are seeing  signs of disruption and the desires of many young professionals to want to live and work in an environment that more closely resembles your description of a new model. In fact, I am seeing many of these young professionals begin to start their own firms and organizations to create the types of businesses they want to be a part of.

 

Wishing you much success in 2014 and thanks for the insights and inspiration!

Why Is Resilience So Hard?...“I reserve the right to wake up smarter every day.”

Why Is Resilience So Hard?...“I reserve the right to wake up smarter every day.” | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
Resilience has long been touted as an essential capability for bouncing back from leadership setbacks...
Tom Hood's insight:

I am a big believer that things happen for a reason and in this social world, the right stuff comes to you at the righ time. That is how I see this article from my friend Don Dea on resilience.


This piece summarizes our own work at the Business Leanring Institute on positivity, growth, and resilience and the work of our own Gretchen Pisano which we use in our leadership academy work.


These two passage resonated with me...


"Yet despite the overwhelming consensus and supporting evidence that resilience is vital for success in today’s business environment, the truth remains: resilience is hard. It requires the courage to confront painful realities, the faith that there will be a solution when one isn’t immediately evident, and the tenacity to carry on despite a nagging gut feeling that the situation is hopeless."


"When facing a difficult or challenging situation, it is natural to fall out of balance. The most important first step is to recognize and acknowledge that you are off balance. Once you reach this awareness, you can consciously take action to regain your foothold by engaging in a set of grounding and centering practices, allowing you to channel your energy more adaptively and constructively."


Forward, always forward! Adopt a growth mindest.

Pipeline of Future Finance Leaders Running Dry: Global Survey - Deloitte CFO - WSJ

Pipeline of Future Finance Leaders Running Dry: Global Survey - Deloitte CFO - WSJ | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
Tom Hood's insight:

This confirms our research from survey pf particpants at the AICPA Global Manufacturing Conference http://cpa.tc/3gn

 

Our own research at the Business Leanring Institute (http://www.blionline.org) shows the answer lies in building a career path tied to the new competencies needed in today's finance/accounitng organizations. Skills like leadership, communications, collaboration, strategic thinking, and technologically savvy are now critical in a rapidly changing and complex environment. 

 

The Deloitte report says it well, “The requirements of the modern finance organization have shifted. Finance should now serve as more than just a steward of a company’s resources and also help chart a path to growth in partnership with other parts of the business,” notes Rich Rorem, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and Finance Transformation leader for the Americas. “Business leaders are looking to their finance organization for a deeper, more hands-on, collaborative approach,” he says. “While CFOs and other finance executives understand this, many of them lead finance organizations that simply weren’t built for that purpose.”

 

“Finance organizations haven’t historically hired talent or built themselves to meet this demand for partnering with other areas of the company to drive growth. Consequently, there is a significant talent gap developing, which CFOs are now trying to address,” Mr. Rorem adds.

 

We have built a template to start thinking about how to communicate the career in finance and tie it to competencies and build a learning curriculum that provides these skills we call The Bounce http://cpa.tc/2qh

SPOC, MOOR, And The Walking Dead; MOOC odyssey continues into uncharted waters.

The speed of learning evolution continues to accelerate as MOOCs (massively open on-line courses) spawn SPOCs (small, private on-line courses) and MOORs (massively open on-line research). Add in social learning, tin can, AICC, and SCORM, we see us quickly moving to just-in-time learning to support the idea of the right talent at the right time with the right skills.

How Bitcoin Could Revolutionise Accountancy

How Bitcoin Could Revolutionise Accountancy | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
Bitcoin may not replace accountants, but it will streamline and optimise their industry.
Tom Hood's insight:

Can bitcoin be the next disruptor for accounting?


having sat through a bitcoin update a few months ago at the CPA2Biz SaaS roundtable, my head was spinning, then I caught these updates/articles. If you thin cloud is being disruptive, what about this? Tell me what you think?


It’s no secret that online accounting firms are already disrupting the industry, offering a cheaper and often more convenient service than their ‘bricks and mortar’ ancestors.


Towards the end of last year, CoinDesk published a piece suggesting four career fields bitcoin could replace. One of these careers was accounting. I wanted to investigate further into whether this could actually happen.

 

here is an excerpt from that piece...

"But what is the role of an accountant going to be when decentralized virtual currencies can automate accounting functions such as a general ledger? The block chain appears to be doing this job just fine for bitcoin, and no certified public accountants required.


The explosion of accounting software to automate many financial tasks over the past two decades has, in some respects, lessened the role of accountants already."

How To Tackle Digital Disruption in 2014 - MoneyBeat - WSJ

How To Tackle Digital Disruption in 2014 - MoneyBeat - WSJ | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
Almost time to crack open the champagne. Almost time to think about New Year's resolutions too.
Tom Hood's insight:

Advice from the world's leading business thinkers - All agreed that leaders need to prepare for a significant shift in the way they work and think.

 

Rita McGrath, associate professor of management at the Columbia Business School, and winner of the “strategy” award, said that ideas in strategy have focused for years on sustainable competitive advantage but they no longer work for many sectors of the economy. She said that organizations have a problem confronting this, and cited KodakKODK +5.92%, which had relied on “nostalgia as strategy.”

 

Nilofer Merchant, an author and winner of the “future thinker” award, put it another way: “ So, the size of your enterprise, the scale, your access to capital–all those things that gave you an edge to new entrants, no longer exists. That’s all extremely scary because that means that your job is no longer about managing the present but inventing the future…all the time.”

 

But it’s not all bad news, leaders can respond to these challenges. Ms. McGrath suggested: “The first challenge for leaders is to be willing to be open to the idea that your advantage might not last.”

 

She also suggested that bosses must embrace the new: “You need to have a very firm grip on your firm’s portfolio and on your resource allocation process because if you let powerful business leaders control your resources you’ll never fund new things.


We are hosting Rita McGrath on January 30th from 9:00 am - 12:30pm (EST) at the BWI Ariport Hilton in Maryland and via special webcast - registration and details at http://www.blionline.org/rita Use this special discount code RITA25 to get a 25% discount.

Online Education as an Agent of Transformation

Online Education as an Agent of Transformation | Scoops and Scans - Trends We Are Watching | Scoop.it
Online education is beginning to show itself as a disruptive innovation, introducing more convenient and affordable services that can transform sectors.
Tom Hood's insight:

A great piece from the recently named #1 Business Thinker in the world (according to Thinkers50), Clayton Christensen.

 

Two insights for me. First around the Innovation Imperative: Change Everything. The article says it well, we need to rethink our business models and break through the pull of past successes when innovating.

 

"The lessons from any number of industries teach us that those that truly innovate — fundamentally transforming the model, instead of just incorporating the technology into established methods of operation ­ — will have the final say."


Second revolves around the disruption of eductaion and in our case the professional development market we serve. We are quickly moving (thanks to technology) to an on-demand, just-in-time model with plenty of in-class and instructor-led opportunities. There is no question that the networking and social aspects of learning won;t ever disappear but the can be greatly augmented with the technology options.


"As concepts and skills are taught more effectively online, it’s unlikely that face-to-face interaction will cease to matter. Instead, students will be able to arrange for such experiences when it suits the job they need to get done. Given the reality that we all have different learning needs at different times, that’s a far more student-centered experience."
