This is a great post from Jay Cross. Although it refers to trends impacting human resources leadership, I think there is a lot for "workers" to gain from reading the post, including nuggets like:
- "The idea that the CEO is running the show is fiction. We’re the boss. Leadership is collective and concurrent. There’s no center."
- "Rather than wring our hands about invasions of privacy, we must rewrite the rules for IP, openness, differentiating our personal and professional lives, and contextual ideation. Making sense of oceans of information takes a collaborative effort; we’ve got to get together on this."
- "Working in teams, sharing and collaborating across silos and organizations challenge normal ways of work, recruiting, and learning. New work communities may replace traditional corporations."
There's much more, but I'll let you discover it for yourself, http://www.internettime.com/2011/11/future-of-talent-2/
