Too often, people in organizations choose to see and at the same time, choose not to see. We have been working in denial for this past decade and if we want to be ready for the future, we need to take our blinders off and unleash our individual and organizational potential.

You can label it the information era, the connection era, the knowledge era, the sharing economy or whatever suits your fancy. It doesn’t really matter what you call it as long as you are prepared for the shifts that are coming. Leaders and individuals who choose to accept that the work will be different and that any organization can create new markets, are the ones I want to partner with as a trusted advisor. There is a storm coming that we can either start preparing for or deal with the aftermath. What will happen when work-life balance transforms into life-work. Picture this: it’s some time later in the 21st century, what have you created for yourself and/or your organization?

Are you ready to contact me to help you and your organization start doing the hard work of shifting gears? If so. I’d love the opportunity to work with you and your organization as a keynote speaker at a large event, executive management meeting or small group workshops that unleash and ignite innovation.

  • Excellent content and some real thought provokers here for executive leadership. I for one am looking forward to a more contingent workforce provided that it doesn't mean their commoditization--I get my independence but sacrifice my earnings for health care coverage. The sooner we can resolve questions like these more easily, the sooner we will see the future predicted here happen.
