What you Need to Know About the Future of Work

The way work gets done seems to have changed at light speed over the last 20 years. There was a time when the fax was revolutionary and no one worked from home. Now, we can get through an entire productive day without touching a single sheet of paper, a pen or a phone. We can even be at work without seeing another person! Because of the huge technological advances of recent years, the very nature of work has changed dramatically. With that change has come some significantly different required skill sets for business leaders.

Six-Figure Hotline: Changing Industries

As part of ExecuNet membership, I conduct a bi-weekly teleconference called Six-Figure Hotline where members call in to ask the questions keeping them up at night, and to gain market and trend insight from the career experts who join me in talking about issues that are important to executives today.

In one such teleconference, I was joined by Ken Cole, an executive search consultant, and a member asked us, "What's an effective way to change industries in today's job market? I find that recruiters are recommending me to search committees, but they opt to consider only those with industry experience. I am surprised that there isn't more cross-pollination between industries."

How Do You Tackle the Tough Decisions?

We've all made difficult choices in our lives, personally and professionally. We wouldn't have gotten to where we are without successfully navigating some tight spots, but that doesn't mean we can't pick up some pointers from others in the ExecuNet community.

Recently, we caught up with some pretty impressive people and asked them: "From any time in your life, what tough choices have you made that now guide or influence how you make new tough decisions?"

Their answers were as varied as they are themselves.

Virtual Body Language

Communication technology has completely changed the way we connect with people to conduct business. It has opened global markets and fostered the use of geographically dispersed teams — including multiple site organizations and remote or home working.

But not all technology is created equal. Lean technologies, like texts and email, offer limited social cues. When you add voice and image you employ much richer sources of communication. We were born with the innate capability to communicate through our postures, gestures, facial expressions, and vocal prosody. In fact, our brains search for and expect these most primitive and significant channels of information. According to Dr. Thomas Lewis (an expert on the psychobiology of emotions and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the university of California San Francisco), when we are denied these interpersonal cues, the brain struggles and real communication suffers.

World’s Simplest Management Secret

Posted By: Geoffrey James
Filed Under: leadership, managing people, geoffrey james
Management books have it all wrong. They all try to tell you how to manage "people."

It's impossible to manage "people;" it's only possible to manage individuals. And because individuals differ from one another, what works with one individual may not work with somebody else.

Some individuals thrive on public praise; others feel uncomfortable when singled out. Some individuals are all about the money; others thrive on challenging assignments. Some individuals need mentoring; others find advice to be grating.
