The Future of Work 2018 Predictions

Katherine Prewitt's insight:
The Future of Work in 2018. 

Much food-for-thought... 

Jane McConnell, Advisor – Analyst – Speaker – Organization in the Digital Age: 

" Openness is starting to get real in organizations, and I believe it will increase in 2018 – both internally and externally...The openness I see evolving is dependent on the reachability factor, and, from what I see around me, is improving every day. The deskless workers are getting equipped, primarily through new policies that let them use their own devices. Work practices such as working out loud are spreading."

Paul Miller, CEO and Founder – Digital Workplace Group and co-author of The Digital Renaissance of Work:

"We accept that “jobs for life” have gone, but this is just one early-stage change in a widespread reformatting of work. From safe employment to independent work (i.e. freelancing, self-employment, portfolio work and the gig economy), there may be fewer and fewer jobs and yet there is no shortage of work. And not only is work being redesigned (particular by the younger generations) but what it means is also shifting in a remarkable way: from work as suffering, duty and obligation to work as passion, fulfilment and meaning. This remodelling of work represents a new work ethic based on value and access, departing from what some previously called the “Protestant work ethic”"

Start Your New Year With Gratitude

Start Your New Year With Gratitude | 2018 Inspiration | Scoop.it
When you focus on wants you tend to fuel a sense of dissatisfaction. Although this may drive you to work towards achieving what you want and don’t have currently, it is not always the best way forward. 

So, this year why not try something different? Why not focus on the all the things that are going right in your life and then build your resolutions on that? 
Katherine Prewitt's insight:
2017...May the year be bright! Que l'année soit pleine de lumière ! Lass das Jahr erstrahlen! ¡ Que la luz ilumine tu año ! 

Wishes for a new year full of promise of achieving the best of who we are. -Katherine

Meditate to Improve Performance

Meditate to Improve Performance | 2018 Inspiration | Scoop.it
15 minutes of meditation improves resistance to the sunk cost fallacy in business decision-making. 

A study at Northeastern University showed how people trained in meditation for just eight weeks behaved with attention to others 50 per cent of the time, compared with 16 per cent for an untrained group. Research like this is why large US corporations like General Mills and Target now use meditation as a tool to improve their performance.
