The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Well the world has changed. Today, thanks to communications technology, people can do their "jobs" everywhere and anywhere.  We collaborate across the globe just as easily as we can in the same room. People don't necessarily progress "upward," but often "sideways" or "deeper" in expertise.

 

And as a result of this shift, if you let your skills atrophy, you're dead.  Your employer can likely find those skills elsewhere by hiring a contractor, bidding out work, or finding another internal expert. We have entered a workforce where deep skills are the currency of employment, not just experience.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.

@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.

@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.

Building Self-Confidence - Prepare yourself for success

Building Self-Confidence - Prepare yourself for success | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it

From the quietly confident doctor whose advice we rely on, to the charismatic confidence of an inspiring speaker, self-confident people have qualities that everyone admires.


Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can be a vicious circle: People who lack self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful.


After all, most people are reluctant to back a project that's being pitched by someone who was nervous, fumbling and overly apologetic.


On the other hand, you might be persuaded by someone who speaks clearly, who holds his or her head high, who answers questions assuredly, and who readily admits when he or she does not know something.


Self-confident people inspire confidence in others: their audience, their peers, their bosses, their customers, and their friends. And gaining the confidence of others is one of the key ways in which a self-confident person finds success.

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

5 Ways to Lead with Emotional Intelligence -- and Boost Productivity | Serving and 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.

Self Development Tips

Self Development Tips | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
As long as you are still alive, you are capable of changing and growing. You can do anything you want to do, be anything you want to be. Listen to some positive thoughts on how to continue your self development and then apply them in your own life.

 

Accept personal responsibility for your own growth; no one can do it for you. What you do today will determine your readiness for tomorrow. Take time every day to do something for yourself. Take classes to stay current in your field of expertise. The world is changing rapidly and you must learn to manage change to avoid obsolescence. The way Will Rogers put this was that "Even if you are on the right track, if you just sit there you will get run over."
