This is going to be a two-part post. In part 1, I will explore why failure can be a powerful competitive advantage, and in part 2, I will explore how to leverage failure as a competitive advantage. When I was growing up, I was always told that failing at something was the worst possible thing […]

Why This Time It’s Different

Posted by on March 27, 2015

Recently, during the question and answer session of a keynote address I gave at the Staffing Industry Analyst’s Conference on the freelancer economy, I was asked, “Why is it different this time?” The attendee clarified the question by saying change is always here — it is the only constant. So, why should we pay more attention this time than we did 10-, 20-, 50 years ago? In this episode of the Future in 5, I discuss the three reasons why it is different this time. [...]

Why The Internet of Things is Going to Change Everything

Posted by on March 24, 2015

In this episode of the Future in 5, I talk about the internet of things. I’ve touched on wearable devices and things related to technology in the past, but I wanted to focus specifically on how the internet of things is going to change our lives. We’re all familiar with people connecting to the web — we can go online on our phones, computers, etc. But, what happens when devices start to go online? [...]

Does Technology Drive Behavior Or Does Behavior Drive Technology?

Posted by on March 20, 2015

What comes first — technology or behavior change? In this episode of the Future in 5, I take a look at this popular topic. I am beginning to see two different conversations happening. On one side, some companies are saying that before they invest in any kind of collaboration technology, they want to figure out a way to change behavior. Once the behavior is changed, they will invest in technology. On the other side, some organizations say they need to invest in the technology so that they can change the behavior. Listen in and give me your comments!

Posted by on March 16, 2015

In 2011, Gary Hamel wrote a seminal article called First Let’s Fire All the Managers where he explores the challenges with modern management and hierarchy. These include large overhead costs, poor decision making, sluggishness due to bureaucracy, and employee disengagement and lack of empowerment. Managers have long been considered to be the bedrock of organizations, so even thinking […]
