WORK IS BROKEN. PRODUCTIVITY IS BROKEN.
Understanding the problem is key to knowing what to do.
Productivity Is Not
being busy, completing straightforward tasks
navigating the unknown, advancing the company into new territory, new ideas, new innovations…that add value and produce results
Two New Skills Are Required of
21st Century Leaders
The name of the game going forward is operating in a world of uncertainty. There are fewer knowns, unclear boundaries and unstable playing fields. It is like operating in the dark.
The first and most important new skill required is decision-making in this world of uncertainty. Decision-making entails two things – risk taking and innovation. You’ll never be able to reduce risk to zero, but making intelligent judgements to reduce risk, even in the face of uncertainty, is a teachable skill. The same is true of innovation – creating something that did not exist before.
But you can’t go it alone. It is human nature to freeze when faced with fear or uncertainty. We are hard-wired for that. Teaming can help overcome that. Teaming requires trust, and good decision-making requires truth. To effectively team and collaborate, the second 21st Century skill we must master is to train to unlearn our own immune system defensive response to protect, which results in ego, silence, conflict avoidance, fragility and defensiveness.
When teamed with others you know and trust, able to rely upon each other to navigate uncertainty and give you truth about your blind spots, operating in the dark is no longer such a daunting task.
