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.
