Over the next fourteen years we will see more transition in the workplace than at any other time in the past. The make-up of work will be so different that we may look back on 2010 the way we do a typewriter or a dial phone today. But we can predict even now many of the changes and how we can respond to them. In work, as in life, it’s our response to challenges that is crucial.

A Sneak Peek into the Five Insights:
1) Growing the Business
This chapter address the predictable patterns companies evolve though on their way to becoming a significant entity. It highlights each of the crises‚ they will encounter, why it happen and how to address each one and come through them even stronger. There are common growth curves that will be experienced and what successful business leaders do to ensure their long-term success. Discover where your organization is at and what the next crises is that you will be facing.
2) Motivating the Team
In this chapter, we go deep into what really motivates people of all generations today. We go way beyond the valid but dated Maslow and Hertzberg basics. We actually explore how an individual’s motivation will change and evolve depending on what stage of their life cycle they are in. Not only is motivation in general very complex but even an individual’s motivation is not static as they achieve different milestones in their lives. Find out what stage you are at in your personal continuum of motivation.
3) Coaching for High Performance
Here I focus on how managers must develop natural but deep and systematic skills of coaching. I lay out a practical, timeless and easy to implement model which all great coaches subconsciously and naturally use. Developing this skill will ensure positive, high-performing and productive staff who will become your loyal and trusted agents. Take the test to determine your coaching strengths and areas to be addressed.
4) Creating Communication Connections
There is a genetic link between our DNA and how we like to be communicated with. This chapter discusses how to identify others‚ styles by noticing specific biological similarities as well as differences and addresses the predictable choices each of the style groups make in their personal and professional lives. Readers will also develop a better understanding of the normal or usual reactions that others exhibit in different situations, which will enable you to use alternate and more constructive responses and tactics. Readers will gain the ability to predict a pattern of response and react in a more positive and influential manner.
5) Developing a Constructive Culture
Finally, to bring it all together, we discuss the benefits of developing a constructive corporate culture that will attract workers of all generations. Organizations which do not pro-actively monitor this or do not address aggressive or passive behaviours will have problems attracting the best and brightest into their organization. Unfortunately, many companies do not feel this is important and continue using short-term strategies which may work temporarily, but could cause a company to fail if not addressed. Many years of research shows there are twelve very obvious behavioural styles that result in an overall company culture. Each of them develop because of conditioning and what may have worked for a period of time to survive through a threat. Now read the latest research that shows what culture will help you succeed for the long-term.
