Fit For the Future
Managing External Experts
External workers - such as freelancers, contractors, consultants, and workers in the sharing economy - are no longer just fringe workers, but an important part of the workforce. Even if you're an experienced leader, the rules of engagement have changed when you bring these people into your team. They bring both challenges and opportunities, but working with them effectively is a leadership skill that will be crucial in our future.
Find Clarity In Uncertainty
In uncertainty and chaos, your people feel unsettled and insecure. You can’t promise them certainty and safety – nobody can – but you can give them greater clarity.In this episode of the Fit For The Future podcast, we explore the three essential parts of creating clarity:Reality (What is): The world has changed, and the first step is to accept that new reality so you can understand how it operates now (and will operate in the future).Possibility (What could be):The people who thrive in change are the possibility thinkers, who look at the big picture and see opportunities created by the change.Priority (What matters):It’s impossible to do everything that’s possible, so become clear about which things to focus on and which you can safely ignore or defer.
Reimagining the Workplace
A year after the mad scramble to get office workers working from home, organisations are grappling with the challenge of understanding the workplace of the future. As restrictions ease and offices become safer workplaces again, there's a strong push by employers to get people back into the office as soon as possible. But it would be a pity if we missed the opportunity to reimagine the future of work and the workplace of the future.https://gihanperera.com
Let's Get Digital!
According to KPMG, digital transformation is the biggest challenge facing leaders in Australia. The pandemic didn't change that - if anything, it accelerated digital transformation by 5-6 years.And yet, McKinsey says 70% of digital transformation efforts fail. Why? Because too many leaders and teams get it wrong. Don’t be digital just for digital’s sake. Do it to better serve your customers, employees, suppliers, investors, and other stakeholders.https://gihanperera.com
