The shift from knowledge to relationship workers

A great insight from the book 'Humans Are Underrated' referenced in my previous post here is about the shift from knowledge to relationship workers.

This is a common topic in my conversations with clients and a key to success in this purpose age.

"In all past ages profit was the key driver.

Knowledge was power.

During the Industrial Age society became part of the economy, arguably our biggest mistake as a human race.

It’s meant we have plundered the earth’s resources.

In the current age purpose (our reason for being in business) is the key driver.

Trust is power.

Profit is seen as it should be, a result of being good at business, not a reason for being in business."

The above is from my ebook 'Meaningful Work and The Meaning of Life'.

Should you acknowledge the shift from knowledge to relationship workers then you will find my ebook a must read. You can download it with my compliments by scrolling down here.

Humans are underrated

This is the book I'm currently studying.

It will definitely make my recommended reading list.

While I love how technology can enhance the human experience I'm tired of all the technology talk about digital and data being the be all and end all and so I'm drawn to books like this.

A key insight so far is that human interaction rules our lives.

The author says "It's even more valuable than we may realize. In a surprising number of ways it holds the key to our value."

Who will you become? What will you do next?

What you're accountable for and what you're not

I'd guess that the number one topic I have conversations with my clients about would be accountability.

When it's said and done I'm accountable for my intentions, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. So are you.

We all get into trouble when we try and take accountability for other people's intentions, feelings, thoughts and behaviours.

Who will you become? What will you do next?

Change processes and the predictability they help create

All the talk is about VUCA

Very few people are talking about the other side of the coin and even less about the edge of the coin. There are 3 sides to every story!

In my world, while accepting VUCA, I help people to focus on the opposites - Dependable, Predictable, Simple and Clear.

VUCA is certainly one side of the story and we should never ignore it. Focusing on the bright side of dependable, predictable, simple and clear leads to a better life and better business results.

This post is about predictable.

A key to predictability is your change process. Do you have one?

Here's mine

The last thing you need is a change program or even worse change management which is an oxymoron!

A change process helps us to live in the moment and to take one true quantum leap at time and therefore make our lives as predictable as possible.

Who will you become? What will you do next to make your life and work more predictable.

The edge of coin referenced above is controlling the controllables. More insight on this here.
