…the High Speed Train to the Future of Work
An apt metaphor! Some people, of course, will choose to board a high-speed train that ends at Middle Street, where they will transfer to old buses and slowly reach their destinations. Others will board a high-speed train that zips past Middle Street and ends at their destination—the Future.
You might say that the first train gets you half-way to where you need to be but, the second train gets you to where you are going!
The changing world of work is like choosing to board a one of these trains.
The only question is: Will YOU get on-board the train to the Future of work?
Here are a few comparisons between the two types of people.
Train to the “Middle”
Seek Full-Time Jobs
Learn through On-Job-Training
Use Big, Simple Technology
Seek Hierarchical Leadership
Externalize Security (organization)
Want Status Quo
Train to the “Future”
Seek Full-Time or Flex-Time Work
Learn Fast & Independently
Use Small, Complex Technology
Seek Distributed Leadership
Internalize Security (self)
Enjoy Challenging Change
