In today’s ever-changing world of work, in which you and your organisation are exposed to the phenomenon of social networking, plus the increasing use of artificial intelligence, the workplace is fast moving from ‘complicated to complex’.
You may be struggling to keep up with your job as it evolves (a robot may even be taking over your role) and, due to ‘social’, face increasing scrutiny and judgement from your peers. You may feel the pressure to have an ‘Instagram-worthy’ working environment. Added to this, the entrepreneurial generation is pushing you to think more innovatively.
Meanwhile, the impending Brexit, following a controversial campaign, and Donald Trump’s unexpected and surprising election as US president have shaken up our world, undermining trust in authority.
The underlying message is that people want change. To rebuild trust, leaders must throw out the old ‘rulebook’ and replace ‘command and control’ with collaboration, embracing vulnerability. The future of work is human – let’s transform uncertainty into greater unity.
