Leading The Future of Work With Jacob Morgan

Making decisions in familiar circumstances is easy.

All you have to do is remember what you did successfully in the past, and then do it again.

But what do you do when you're faced with an unfamiliar situation?

The answer lies in chess--a virtually limitless game.

There are a lot of possible moves in a game of chess, but there are certain things that Grandmasters do all the time:

1. Pattern recognition

2. Follow their intuition

3. Calculate

4. Not afraid of making mistakes

We keep hearing about this concept of passion and whether or not you should follow your passion.

It reminds me of a story about a man who visits a construction site.

As he's going around the construction site, he sees a bunch of people working.

He asks the first person what they do there. And the man responds that he lays bricks.

He asks the second person, who says he is building a wall.

He asks the third person, who says he is building a cathedral.

I love this story because it's an example of three people who are doing the exact same thing with totally different mindsets.

It's not that the person building a cathedral is passionate about what he's doing, it's the fact that he's bringing his passion with him to whatever he does.

And that I think, is a far more scalable and realistic approach.

Don’t follow your passion. Instead, bring your passion with you.

How to win the war for talent by focusing on employee experience.

Employee experience is the process of redesigning your workplace practices around your people by focusing on three environments:

💓Culture: how people feel working for you

🪟Technology: the tools and resources employees use

📠Space: the spaces in which employees work

Lots of people are talking about the Great Resignation, but I see it as the Great Opportunity!

That is... if your organization is willing to step up and make change happen.

I talk about that more in this episode. Tune in and let me know what you think.

Are you a current or aspiring leader who feels stuck in your career?

If so, you’re not alone.

But thankfully, there are six strategies you can implement to unstick yourself from your career and find a way to move forward.

1. Ask why. It's easy to feel stuck. But ask yourself why you feel stuck in your current role or your current environment and get to the root of the problem.

2. Focus more on who you work with and less on the dollar figure and the brand name.

3. Be open to the possibility of making a lateral or even a backwards move so that you can then make a forward move.

4. Have an honest conversation with your leader. If you feel stuck, talk with your leader and explain your feelings. Maybe you can both do something that makes you feel unstuck.

5. Take a step back and really define where you want to go.

6. When all else fails, consider quitting. The worst thing you can do is be complacent and simply feel like you're stuck without taking any kind of action. But the best thing you can do is act.

For many years, there has been the assumption that anything related to people inside of an organization is only the responsibility of HR.

HR does the recruiting, hiring, firing, benefits, compensation, policies, and all the people-related tasks.

I'm not saying that as a leader you need to do all of these things. But as a leader, you are ultimately responsible for your people. And that is very much an HR responsibility.

Sometimes we forget the power and responsibility a leader truly has. You have the power to make or break someone's day.

As a leader, you need to know your employees as human beings, not just as workers.

You need to know what your people care about and what they value.

You need to know their strengths and weaknesses and how you can help them shine.

You need to unlock their potential and make sure they succeed.

People don't leave companies, they leave leaders. So as a leader, you are arguably the most important part of the HR department.

Do you know how to increase your productivity?

According to Dan Pink, author of When, you have to understand the three stages of your day.

We all go through these stages at different times, but the stages themselves are consistent: Peak, Trough, and Recovery.

The peak is when you have energy, when you're ready to go and you can accomplish anything. This is the time to work on your tough tasks.

The trough is when you're mentally checked out, sluggish, and not really present. This is the stage where you want to focus on the administrative tasks and things that don't require a lot of cognitive energy and effort.

The recovery happens much later in your day. This is where your mood is usually up, and it’s the best time to focus on tasks that are good for insight, such as creating tasks or brainstorming.

The key is to identify when is your peak, when is your trough, and when is your recovery. After you identify those things, you'll know which tasks you should be doing at certain times in the day.

I never liked the phrase soft skills.

To me, it implies that things like communication, empathy, self awareness, and emotional intelligence are less valuable and less tangible than things like reading, math, and science.

Many leaders and HR professionals actually agree that soft skills are more important now than these traditional hard skills.

It's these human soft skills that ultimately distinguish us from machines.

AI is already augmenting human decision making.

It's out thinking, out maneuvering, out strategizing and outperforming us in many capacities.

But not when it comes to the skills that make us who we are as human beings.

It's because of these “soft skills” that we were still able to bring in new customers and close deals.

We were still able to support and help each other.

And create customer and employee experiences that matter.

So let's call them what they really are, not soft skills, but skills.

Let's recognize how crucial and invaluable they truly are for our personal and professional success.

What is the most dangerous quality a leader can have?

Ego.

Having an ego in itself isn't bad. But what hurts a lot of leaders is having an ego that goes unchecked.

As you grow and excel in your career, you're going to get more power, authority, responsibility, and money. And as that happens, it's only natural that your ego is going to grow.

As a result, you start to think that your ideas are better than everybody else's and that you shouldn't be questioned or challenged.

This is when the downward spiral typically begins.

In addition to creating a toxic work culture, you start to miss out on opportunities to create new products and services, and you start to make bad decisions.

But the good news is there are a few things that you can do to avoid having this happen to you:

1. Practice empathy

2. Embrace and develop self awareness

3. Surround yourself with diverse people who are smarter and more talented than you

4. Get out of the ivory tower and spend time with people across different seniority levels and different functions in the organization

5. Practice saying I don't know

Keep your ego in check as you grow and develop as a leader. Don't let ego kill your career and your leadership potential.

Stephen Richards Covey was a well-known nonfiction author in the United States. He was a multi talented individual known for his accomplishments as a successful businessman, educator, and public speaker.

When researching organizations for my book, The Employee Experience Advantage, my goal was to explore what employee experience is, what the world’s top companies are doing, how to create frameworks that others can follow, and what the ROI of investing in employee experience is.

After all of my research, I found the ROI of investing in employee experience is significant and translates into higher productivity, profit and revenue per employee, stock price performance, and much more. The organizations that invest in Employee Experience CRUSH the competition!

You can learn what the world's leading organizations like Airbnb, Cisco, and Facebook are doing to create these employee experiences with my free employee experience training series here: http://bit.ly/2GcvaxF

Boundaries are only as good as your ability to communicate them.

It's great for you to know what your boundaries are, but if other people don't know about them, they're kind of useless.

It’s important to have boundaries and communicate them in a clear way.

When communicating, one of the most important things to have is empathy. You don’t want to sound rude by saying NO to people.

Keep in mind that you’re saying no to the request, not the person.

When your leader starts giving you a lot of work, you can say, “Can you help me prioritize my current projects so I know what I should be working on first and what I can do later?”

Another technique is to have an open and honest conversation with your leader. Let them know that you have a lot going on and are feeling stressed and that you're working on being more productive.

Letting people know what you're facing and how you're trying to come up with potential solutions can be a healthy thing to do.

Technology is changing all of the time, so it’s best to conduct technology audits in your organization on a yearly basis.

Take a step back and look at the ways in which you're working and where technology might be able to play a role. Identify the bottlenecks and challenges you see.

If you start using new technologies inside your company, it's important to collect data on the progress. Are employees satisfied with those technologies?

Don't assume that just because you give people a piece of technology, they will automatically start using it. You need an ongoing feedback process so you can keep improving and making changes to your organization.

Technology has a 30% impact on an employee's overall experience. That's because if an employee doesn't feel they have access to the tools and resources to get their job done, they start to become disengaged and frustrated and eventually will want to leave your organization and work elsewhere.

Every employee inside of your organization has something to offer regardless of the generation they're from or the stage of life they are in. This is why mentoring can flow both ways, with younger employees mentoring older employees or with older employees mentoring younger employees.

In the old days, we always had the older and more experienced people mentor younger people. But in this new world of work, we're starting to see that mentoring can go both ways.

When mentoring goes the other way, meaning a younger employee is mentoring an older employee, we refer to this as reverse mentoring.

Reverse mentoring is not only a great way to build trust and collaboration, but it's a wonderful way to share ideas inside of organizations. Reverse mentoring can help break through generational stereotypes that might exist inside your company.

Complaining and speaking up are not the same thing!

Everyone should be comfortable with speaking up at work.

The first reason to speak up at work is to share an opinion about something.

Chances are, you were hired because they like what you bring to the table--your opinion, unique perspective, and the things you care about.

Have an opinion and share it, but do so in a tactful way that doesn't put other people down or hurt their feelings.

The second type of speaking up we need to practice is about driving actual change.

When you speak up inside of your organization to drive change, the most important thing you can do is have a solution.

A lot of employees are good at complaining. But if asked what to do to change it, they don’t know what to say. That's not an effective way to drive change inside of your organization.

It’s crucial for you to speak the language of the business and have some sort of a proposed solution that you want to see happen if you truly want to drive change.

Most of the time, we’re focused on what is right in front of us, especially with our careers.

But we need to pay attention to the tangentials. That means opening up a bit to notice the things on the sides related to our main focus.

For example, let’s say you are in finance.

If you’re someone who is paying attention to the tangentials, you would probably notice that there are a lot of conversations happening around the impact AI and technology might have on your job.

Because of this, you could ask yourself, where else can my skills and abilities be used besides just finance?

Then you would realize that your skills are also very much in demand in areas like HR data science and people analytics. You can now quickly pivot and bring your skills to another area.

If you had your blinders on, you would be very much stuck in finance and not have as many options to grow and expand.

This is why it’s very important to pay attention to the tangentials.

Do you need to be an executive at a company to be a leader?

No, you don't.

Leading others is a choice.

It's not about your title.

There are plenty of people who have senior executive titles but are terrible leaders. And similarly, there are lots of other people who don't have executive titles but are amazing leaders.

Being a leader is about influencing change. It's about motivating, engaging, empowering, and inspiring others.

If you want to be a better leader, then start leading.

We’ve never invested more time, more money, or more resources into employee engagement programs. We spend billions of dollars every year, but around the world, employee engagement scores aren’t improving. Why?

Because it’s the employee experience that creates an engaged workforce. And an engaged workforce impacts ROI. If you want to have an engaged workforce, start by investing in the experience of your people.

This is based on a concept created by a psychologist named Thomas Gilovich. He realized that if you invest in a physical good, your satisfaction goes down over time. However, if you invest in an experience, over time, your satisfaction goes up.

Learn how the world’s top CEOs create amazing employee experiences within their organizations.

Sam Walton, founder of Walmart, passed away in 1992, but the company he created is still one of the world's largest employers today.

In many ways, the impact of his leadership is still felt today.

Sam's leadership lessons can guide us today in 2021 as much as they did many many decades ago.

Here are three things Sam did that you as a leader should do as well:

1. Ask questions. Sam was considered a master questionnaire. He was constantly talking to people at all levels of the company. He showed that he valued other people's perspectives, opinions, and ideas by truly trying to ask thoughtful questions.

2. Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you. A leader's job isn't to be the smartest person in the room. A leader's job is to assemble a team and to create an organization where people are smarter than the leader is.

3. Hold on to what's working and change what isn’t. It's easy to get wrapped up in new things. But don't get rid of a successful practice or method simply to chase something shiny and new.

This can make it feel like you are just a drop in an ocean. So how can you possibly get noticed?

If you want to learn and grow and have your voice get heard, here are five things you can do:

1. Speak up in meetings. Be confident that you were invited there for a reason to contribute something and not just to be a body.

2. Join a committee or an employee resource group. Find something that matches your talents and interests and go all in.

3. Participate in your company's internal collaboration platforms. Pretty much every organization uses some sort of technology for employees to communicate and collaborate. Take advantage of those platforms.

4. Ask questions. If you struggle to share your own ideas, start by asking questions of others.

5. Offer a solution. Stop pointing out what’s wrong and offer a solution.

Don't be afraid to make your voice heard. It will help you develop and be more successful in your career and in life.

Around a thousand years ago, a mathematician and inventor named Sissa created chess.

He showed it to the ruler of the land, who was so impressed that he offered Sissa any reward he wanted.

Sissa said, “I would like you to put one grain of rice on this chessboard and then keep double the amount of grain for each subsequent square.”

The ruler quickly agreed and told his advisors to figure out how much rice they would need to pay off Sissa.

As it turns out, we don’t even have enough rice in the world today to meet the amount required.

Sissa then became the new ruler of the land.

At first glance, doubling a grain of rice on a chessboard seems like it will lead to very gradual and small growth.

However, when you get to the second half of the chessboard, the doubling accelerates at a hockey stick growth pattern, meaning it’s no longer gradual growth but a massive increase from each square to the next.

When we talk about the rapid pace of change, this is where most leaders, technologists, and futurists believe we are today… at the second half of the chess board.

We must all embrace that this is the new normal.

To succeed in this kind of a world, we need to change our mindset because today “late adopter” means “out of business”

Magnus Carlsen is the current world chess champion. He is considered the greatest chess champion to ever live.

What makes Magnus Carlsen great is his ability to think outside of chess principles and conventional ideas.

He challenges traditional chess wisdom.

When in positions where it looks like he's lost, he somehow finds a way to save the game.

He does this because he can see things other people struggle to see.

When we think about the future of work, we need this same mentality.

To challenge convention and to come up with new ideas.

We must accept that the game has changed.

We have to challenge our outdated notions of what it means to be an employee, what it means to be a leader inside of an organization, and even what it means to work.

Now is the time for us to think beyond what we're used to.

Today, there's noise and distractions all over the place.

Being able to stand out and clearly share our ideas, points of view, and perspectives has never been more important.

Without strong communication skills, a great proposal might get lost in the shuffle, an amazing candidate might not get hired for an organization, or a brilliant idea might never be heard.

Think about how much information and data you are competing against every day. There is a lot of stuff out there that pulls our attention in many different directions.

That is why communication is a crucial skill to have in order to be successful in the new world of work.

It's very easy for us to become burned out in this new world we live in.

We're surrounded by technology at our fingertips, and it’s easy to get exhausted because we’re constantly multitasking.

Studies show that multitasking actually takes you 25% longer to complete both tasks.

Multitasking isn't your friend.

It does come down to being able to prioritize and figuring out what you should be working on and what can wait.

Everyone wants things from you all the time--your friends, your boss, your coworkers, your spouse. These requests come in digitally and in person.

Learning to say no and taking more control over our lives is crucial to success.

A lot of us have a hard time saying no because we’re conditioned from an early age to say yes. It feels awkward to say no to people.

But saying no is one of the best ways to prevent burnout.

Learn to value your time.

Saying no also allows you to build self-esteem and confidence.

Having a growth mindset is crucial to succeed in the future of work. There are a few things you can do to embrace this mindset:

✅View challenges as opportunities. Most people view challenges as opportunities to fail and as things they can't overcome.

Instead, you should view any challenge you face as an opportunity to grow.

You can do this by taking on more challenging tasks. Don't just play it safe.

You can also find a creative path around your obstacles. Try to explore new ways of overcoming your challenges.

✅ Don't be afraid to ask for help. Don't be scared to bring in other people to help you accomplish your tasks.

✅ Set short-term and long-term goals for yourself. Setting goals allows you to work backwards to make sure you're taking the right steps to get where you want to be.

It’s time to start setting boundaries for yourself, the same way you set boundaries for other people.

I have set 7 rules for myself that help me become more productive every day:

1.❌Don’t check email or social media until 4:00 p.m. every day.

2.❌Don't take meetings with people who just want to pick my brain. I get a lot of these requests every week, and if I start saying yes, it will snowball.

3.❌No television in the bedroom, and no technology during mealtimes.

4.✅Be healthy. I try to eat healthy and make time to exercise.

5.❌No calls or meetings before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m.

6.✅Always make time for family.

7.❌NO meetings or calls on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays.

How about you? What are your boundaries?

David Allen is widely recognized as the world’s leading expert on personal and organizational productivity. The Getting Things Done Method rests on the idea of moving items of interest, relevant information, issues, tasks and projects out of the mind, by recording them externally, and then breaking them into actionable work items. And this allows attention to be focused on taking action on tasks instead of recalling them.
