Why managers are pushed away by Talents and Leaders

Here are the main points in this brilliant session by Ade McCormack on the new age of workplace, employment and skills

Managers were needed in the Industrial Age to keep an eye on employees that did not like the automatic tasks they had to do
Now automation took over those jobs

There is no room for laziness

The need is for talented people and leaders

Those are passionate people who are eager to do much more than any manager could demand

Talents look for innovation, mobility/flexibility/fun-ability , work/life balance, playing with other great people – all those so much worthy than money, yet so hard to create

When you create a great workplace, great people will join, driving great customers to you as they provide massive value

Nowadays risk is hooked to value

You have to bring risk into your work plans to make real progress

As you play in risky arenas you need some peripheral sensory – data about new risks

You need to spend time trying out the new risk related technologies even if there is no guarantee they will materialize into actual danger

Leaders must make sure their teams don’t have any interference to gain and maintain a state of “flow” – joyful focus on exercising their maximum abilities

Treat your career as a lean startup – choose what you are passionate about, have great skills at, and got market demand for

Ask yourself everyday- am I working in a place that allows me to gain my maximum market value

How hard do you practice and learn to become world class in your arena?
