The workplace is changing – in where we work, when we work, and who does the work. This creates challenges and opportunities for leaders, who have to achieve their goals with distributed, global and fluid teams.
Here are the five key questions leaders need to ask about the future of work:
- WHERE does work happen?
- HOW does work get done?
- WHEN does work happen?
- WHO does the work?
- WHY do we work?
I covered this topic in a webinar today, which will help you discover what you need to know now to be fit for the future of work.
After the webinar, I asked participants “What was the most useful thing you learned today?” Here are some of their answers:
“Reinforcement of the Harvard Business Review research”
“Thinking away from an office”
“Mental shift – focus on results not activity”
“Working digitally and distributed is OK”
“The shift in how business has been done to how it is and will be done in the future”
“Review internal processes and see what doesn’t need someone sitting in the office to do them”
“The traditional way we worked in an office is changing and we need to adapt for our teams.”
“Areas of my business that may benefit from being on the cloud e.g. accounting, CRM”
“Renewed motivation to increase pace of moving everything to the cloud”
“Great start to 2016 – thank you!”
“The world is changing so fast, being able to adapt business to these changing times can be challenging”
“Am in the process of setting up a business and was recommended to your webinars and they were definitely as good as promised.”
