Working and managing in organizations has changed dramatically over the past twenty years. This posting by Virgin on a B Team report illustrates the skills and characteristics of both people and organizations that are, and will be successful in the future. This is not the time or place for the controlling, hierarchical or dictatorial leader or organization. That has been demonstrably shown to inhibit growth, creativity and sustained success.
One key point is that management will be about enabling, empowerment and creating environments where people can be successful if they do the work, keep learning and growing. This is also the place were mentors will be key to both management and individuals. The future workplace is complex, fast changing and one that is best navigated with some help and a guiding hand, but most of all, a trusted voice helping you challenge your choices and decisions.
