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.

6 Steps to Sustainable Teams: Start with Strengths

6 Steps to Sustainable Teams: Start with Strengths | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
A great leader does what they can to make themselves and people around them succeed and excel to their fullest potential.

 

A great leader does what they can to make themselves and people around them succeed and excel to their fullest potential. If you as a leader aren’t doing this, then it’s time to focus on becoming a “Maximizer.


Maximizer: People with the “Maximizer Theme” focus on others’ strengths as a way to stimulate personal and group excellence.

 

They seek to transform something strong into something superb.


Questions to ask yourself:


Are you a Maximizer? Do you know how many people in your team are Maximizers?

Nice descriptive framework, but it needs a 'how to get there' as well...
