The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Communication & Leadership |

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.

The key question for me is how well has the leadership, company policies and management styles changed to help engage with this new breed of employee?

Be on a mission that doesn't suck

Be on a mission that doesn't suck | Communication & Leadership |

If you’re job hopping, serially starting companies, or constantly burned out, ask yourself: why is this happening? Chances are, it’s as simple as not being on a mission that you care about. When you’re really doing something you love, stress can actually improve productivity (this isn’t necessarily founded in science, just personal observation), whereas when you’re drudging along, stress compounds an already adverse circumstance.


So what makes a mission that doesn’t suck?


The best missions, it would seem, are those keep you cranking day after day. They’re ambitious, improbable, and fundamentally thrilling. Some of the loftiest are missions that can never quite be fulfilled. Google’s famously is “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.” Starbucks wants to “inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time.” Whole Foods believes that“companies, like individuals, must assume their share of responsibility as tenants of Planet Earth.”

Amy Melendez's insight:

My mission is to help current and #futureleaders everywhere create cultures full of transparency and free of fear, instead of the opposite.  And, of course, being ripped!   These motivate me every day.


What is your mission?

Good question Jean-Phillipe. In my experience, things like possible organizational changes or possible layoffs are the types of issues that can lead to lots of fear. My guiding light is to talk openly about the reality the team is facing and what is being done about it. It is key to make it safe for staff to openly share their concerns and address their concerns openly. The opposite will result in negative watercooler talk and growing distortions that make everything worse. Big topic here.

Thank You Al for your point of view. Conscious fear may be acceptable only if followed by positive transformal action.

All mankind is in bondage. Each faith is slavery (and unlimited faith in the power of love). Yes every so-called "giving a heart full of love" (not because we think we can, but because we want), every religion, every church, every synagogue, every such temple is nothing but a prison with open doors. A door to them are deliberately open so provoked in you the illusion that you are not in jail. And what will happen when i close this door?

I had the BEST mom in the world. Everything I have accomplished in my life and my business is because of her unconditional love and encouragement. She always knew I could do it, especially when I didn't believe it myself! Here's to all the moms out there. Thank you!
