4 Ways to Work Smarter, Not Harder

4 Ways to Work Smarter, Not Harder | First Time Leader | Scoop.it
You’re contemplating taking the dive and setting up your own business, or perhaps you have already. It’s no more 9 to 5, you’re setting your own timelines, you are your own performance review. Your days now vary from being highly productive to highly disruptive. If you’re like me, the thought of doing anything non work related between 9 to 5 makes you anxious, yet you then end up working all day and throughout the weekend. I’ve come to realise that not only is this ridiculous, it’s also unsustainable.

Carol Carter's curator insight, January 31, 2014 3:26 PM

Thoughtful article every MBA should read and fully digest. The only way to remain powerful, is to empower the people you are tasked to lead. This has always been true. Now it's crucial.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 1, 2014 6:30 PM

Leadership does have to change. What is interesting is that today, as I looked for dissertation materials on leadership, this idea of a leadership crisis is not new, Many authors and thinkers complained of the same thing in times past. The challenge might be the pace of change is so rapid it presents new challenges.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, February 24, 2014 10:36 AM

While I don't agree with the entire thought pattern here I do agree that Leaders reflect whats going on in our society. Leadership is going through one of its many changes over centuries of time. What once worked...won't tomorrow. Stay tuned....

Absolutely Scott. I remember when I used to think my gen was the best thing since sliced bread, now I have to remind myself my gen does not know it all :)
Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:48 PM

While there are many qualities that distinguish millennials from other generations, "One of the key things to remember, he [the author] said, is that millennials are highly collaborative."  However, collaborative doesn't mean they are skilled at communicating, at least outside of today's common social media forums.  Generation Y also appreciates transparency.  Good points to consider in today's blended workforce.
