Working in the New Economy

Next Thursday I have been invited to be part of a panel discussion, Tomorrow’s Job Trends: Preparing with Purpose.  This discussion between local area leaders and high school students is intended to explore what it means today, and will mean tomorrow, to be working in the new economy. I feel both honored to participate and thankful these discussions are taking place. The top three skills I believe need to be cultivated moving forward are…

Adaptive Leadership

In the last five years I have been through over five reorganizations. My job, my fundamental role within the organization I work, has changed on average once every year for the last half decade. “Adaptive leadership is specifically about change that enables the capacity to thrive.” (The Practice of Adaptive Leadership)  In my experience, organizations and leaders need to sharpen our abilities to practice adaptive leadership.  To practice adaptive leadership is to lead dangerously and it is seated in a strong understanding of both internal and external forces that influence the system.

 

Mastery of Career Self-Management

No one will or should care as much about your career as you do. Whether the predictions of a freelance economy are fully realized, we can count on more career changes and need for increased career advocacy than previous generations. I believe all workers need to consider:

    •  Growing your transferable skills inventory
    •  Committing to continual learning
    •  Developing the ability to sell your value to others
    •  Owning your own leadership development
    •  Discovering your own peace and happiness

Ability to Balance Micro vs. Macro

We will continue to ignore political and economic forecasts, which are an expensive distraction for many investors and businessmen…Imagine the cost to us, then, if we had let a fear of unknowns cause us to defer or alter the deployment of capital. Indeed, we have usually made our best purchases when apprehensions about some macro event were at a peak. Fear is the foe of the faddist, but the friend of the fundamentalist.” Warren Buffet, Source: Chairman’s Letter, 1994

Looking at trends in our economy that influence the nature of work and discussions about how to prepare for the future are important. At the end of the day though we have careers to manage and businesses to start. The future will always remain to some degree unknown, so don’t stop what you know needs to be done today for fear of tomorrow.
