Future of Work with @SimpletonBill
Prognosticators have been predicting the future of work for some time. Some take a very futuristic approach envisioning how, when and where robots will take over more of human jobs. While that’s fun, some of it I find, frankly, dystopian and unrealistic.
To predict the future of anything, those in that field of practice need to account for the role of human spirit. And it’s this point that makes me curious about the work Bill Jensen of the Jensen Group is doing. In his new research, The Future of Work 2015-2020, presents three key findings that will likely stir some emotion in you.
Finding 1: Freeing up people to live into their fullest capacity.
Finding 2: We’ve been asking the wrong question as it relates to employee engagement.
Finding 3: The future of work is personal.
In this latest episode of Work That Matters, Bill sheds light on what the report holds for leaders who want to remain relevant and resonate with their teams.
