If I assume that my experience of the last 25 years is what’s going to help me be successful in the next few, I’m wrong! Let me tell you! That experience is becoming less and less worthy.
What’s important is how are we learning the new things we need to get capable and get ahead of the changes we’re seeing around us.

“As organizations must tackle more hot-button social issues every day, leaders are at greater risk than ever of saying too little. This is a problem, because feedback has never mattered more.”

“Today’s business environment grows more complex by the minute.  Blame it on the buzzwords: distributed work processes, infinite variables, artificial intelligence, bitcoin, blockchain … you’ve heard ’em all. 

Add the power of choice to an ever-changing work world and things get even more complicated.

Historically low levels of unemployment give workers more unprecedented agency than ever before. They move between employers or strike out on their own, creating portfolio careers where time is continuously spent looking for better opportunities.

“Working in such a nuanced environment means feedback has never been more essential, because feedback drives performance.

Many organizations are already at a loss for how to adequately handle feedback in the face of all these factors.

And now a whole different beast has reared its head to make matters even worse.”
