Don’t Fear The Future Of Work

The Future of Work

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is the source of this piece on The Future of Work. I don’t disagree with the headline, but the article itself falls short of providing solace. In fact it falls short of being an article – but that’s another story.

An altogether disappointing piece that ends …

“I really come away from this concerned about the direction [of work], but optimistic about our ability to change it.”

David Autor, Co-chair, MIT Task Force on the Work of the Future and MIT Professor of Economics

On what grounds? Their was nothing of substance in the piece. Just opinion.

Part 2 of my conversation with Cristina DiGiacomo, M.S. goes live at 5 am Pacific Standard Time on Monday 23rd. You are going to love it. Hell, we loved it so much that when we finished – we just kept going – you’ll see what I mean.

Part One – if you want to catch up first.

And it’s not as if there is a theme going here BUT – later on in the week, part 1 of my conversation with Tim Walters Ph.D., goes live.

It must be philosophy in the workplace week!

American Business

It’s an old one that I rediscovered in the archives. Time to publish.

Killing Them Softly: America is not a country, it’s just a Business

It just seemed right, timely and very ‘People Firsty’.

Managing Complex Change

Brought to my attention by Stuart Robbins, who went on to write ….

It is known as the Knoster Model for Complex Behavioral Change (circa 2000). For those who would like to know more, search for Timothy Knoster. In sum, Knoster identifies the 5 key elements needed for any Change Management initiative to be successful, and the relative symptoms caused if/when one element is missing.

Stuart Robbins

Interesting. I went of looking further and found an even better image (see below) that adds context to the steps and happy smiling emojis that reflect the expected feelings! 🙂

The keen observers amongst you will also spot a different order and an extra step – but the principle holds. (The principle being – as Stuart said in his original message to me … (I paraphrase) … how much information can be packed into a single image (doffing hat to E. Tufte.)
