The 5 Trends Shaping the Future of Work
 
03:36
Everything we know about the future of work is being shaped by five trends: globalization, technology, changing demographics, new behaviors, and mobility. For the first time these five trends are coming together to force organizations to change the way they think about how work gets done. Is your organization ready for these five trends and for the future of work? ---------------------------------------------- Jacob Morgan is a keynote speaker, best-selling author (his most recent book is “The Future of Work”), and futurist.

If You Want to Change Behavior Then Lead By Example - Jacob Morgan
 
02:19
A lot of times managers and executives tell their employees how they should act and behave. They explain what their expectations are for the employees and they lay out ground rules for working for the company. But a lot of times those same leaders are not exhibiting those behaviors themselves. There is a fascinating story about Gandhi that can really teach us something about leadership. The story is about a woman whose son was addicted to sugar. No matter what she did she could not fix this addiction in her son. Doctors, friends and relatives all told the young boy to stop eating sugar because it is not good for him, but he wouldn’t listen. Finally the mother decided to take her son to see Gandhi to see if the son would listen to this well respected, wise and pious man. The waited in line to meet Gandhi for a very long time and when they finally got to him the mother explained that her son was addicted to sugar. She told Gandhi her son would not listen to anyone telling him not to eat sugar, but surely he will listen to you. Gandhi told the woman to come back in two weeks and he would help them. The woman was confused, but did what he said. Two weeks later the mother and son returned to Gandhi. The mother explained to Gandhi that they had been there two weeks before and that her son is still addicted to sugar. Gandhi looked at the boy and said, “Son, you should stop eating sugar”. The mother was again confused and asked Gandhi why they had to wait two weeks when that was all he was going to say. Gandhi replied, “Two weeks ago I myself was addicted to sugar. How can I tell somebody else to stop doing something, when I am doing that same thing?” We should use this as an example of how to lead. How can we ask others to behave in a certain way when we ourselves are not behaving that way. We need to first start with ourselves and see what happens. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

What Happens When We Rely Too Much On Technology - Jacob Morgan
 
02:29
Technology is cool and it helps us in daily life. But one thing that is cause for concern is that we tend to over rely on technology. We have this scenario in our heads that in the future we will all have robots that will do things for us at home and at work and that software will do the jobs we don’t like to do. We think of all the advancements that are happening in the technology space and what is yet to come and we get this grandiose vision in our minds. The fact is technology has a lot of issues including the possibility of being hacked and the challenge of glitches and errors that are bound to happen. I fear that we are over relying on technology thinking that in the future we won’t have to do anything for ourselves. The question is, will our over reliance on technology come back to bite us in the future? If we rely solely on technology for things like automating farming or operating autonomous cars, what happens when the technology breaks down or it gets hacked? If we put too much reliance on technology alone I worry that it will make us less human or distort our reality. We don’t take things at face value anymore, we are moving away from making judgements and decisions on our own by using our senses and thoughts. Instead we are looking at the world through the eyes of data and algorithms and basing our decisions on what technology tells us. If we continue this way, will the humanity aspect disappear altogether? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Why Business Leaders Should Learn to Play Chess - Jacob Morgan
 
03:39
The game of Chess has been around since the 6th Century AD and it has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I think all business leaders should learn how to play because there are so many business lessons we can learn from Chess. I am quite obsessed with the game of Chess. It has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember and it is something that I really enjoy doing. Chess is not only a fun and challenging game, but it also provides many life lessons. I think all business leaders should learn how to play chess because it can teach us a lot about business. Here are the 6 biggest business lessons I have learned from playing chess: 1. How to work with AI 2. How to look at the big picture 3. Patience 4. How to look at several different situations and figure out what outcomes each may bring 5. How to identify patterns 6. How to be comfortable with the unknown All of these lessons are important to learn and will help you be a better leader. So, if you have some extra time on your hands, try Chess. I highly recommend it. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

AI: What Is it, What Are The Benefits & Challenges And What You Can Do To Prepare For It
 
07:50
There have been many conversations around AI and automation in the past few years. Some people are excited to embrace the coming growth of AI, while others are frightened and worried about how our jobs and our lives will change because of it. This video explores what AI really is, what challenges and benefits it creates and what we can do to ensure we are ready for the oncoming growth of AI. Humans have long been obsessed with creating AI ever since the question, “Can machines think?”, was posed by Alan Turing in 1950. With the prediction that AI will grow 300% this year over last year, it is clear that this trend is not going anywhere anytime soon. What are the two biggest developments to bring AI to the forefront? What are the biggest benefits and challenges with AI? What can individuals do to prepare for the oncoming AI growth? Some people are excited to embrace the coming growth of AI, while others are frightened and worried about how our jobs and our lives will change because of it. One thing that is clear is that AI is a big part of the future of work, so get ready. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

What Is Employee Experience?
 
05:58
As we shift to the future of work where organizations are focusing on the reasons why employees WANT to work versus NEED to work, it is important to understand employee experience. A lot of organizations historically have focused only on one aspect of organizational change and that is culture. This is how employees feel when they are inside of an organization, the vibe that they get, the organizational structure, leadership style, compensation and benefits, etc. While culture is a part of the employee experience, it is only a third. Employee experience is the combination of three distinct things that exist within any organization regardless of industry, size, and location. The other parts of employee experience are the technological environment and the physical environment. The technological environment is the tools an employee needs to do their job, including the user interface, mobile devices, and desktop computers. An organization should provide relevant and modern tools that allow employees to get their job done. The physical environment includes anything that can be seen, heard, touched, and tasted like the desks, chairs, art, and meals. This is crucial because employees spend most of their time inside the organization so it should have a positive effect on them. All three of these aspects should be focused on to create an environment where people want to show up! ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Creating A Sense Of Purpose In The Workplace - Jacob Morgan
 
03:37
Now more than ever employees are looking for a sense of purpose and meaning in their work. But where does that purpose come from--the worker or the organization? There is a story about President Kennedy visiting to NASA in the 1960s. While he was visiting he was walking down a hallway and saw a man who was carrying a broom and a bucket and Kennedy asked the man what he did at NASA. The man, who was a janitor at Nasa, replied, “Sir, I help put a man on the moon”. That story has been told and retold because it is a great example of the importance of having a sense of purpose in the work that we do. But where does that sense of purpose come from? Is it something that the organization is supposed to provide for you or is it something that the employee is supposed to come to work with? I think the answer is that it is partially the responsibility of both parties to create. I believe that the organization needs to help employees connect what they are doing to the impact they are having in a way that helps them see how they are changing the organization, the community and the world. Organizations can do this through stories, through helping employees feel like they belong at the company and giving them opportunities to grow and advance. But it is also partially the responsibility of the employee. The employee cannot just show up to work and assume the organization is going to hold their hand and do everything for them. Employees need to have an open mind, they need to find ways to contribute and they need to figure out why they are working for the organization in the first place. The greatest sense of purpose comes when both the organization and the employee create and nurture that purpose and that mindset on a daily basis. Do you agree with me? Who do you think is responsible for creating a sense of purpose at work? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Ditch The Employee Lifecycle And Focus On Moments That Matter  - Jacob Morgan
 
03:01
We all have moments in our lives that stand out from the rest, moments that matter. For me personally some of the moments that matter are the day I got married, the day my daughter was born, and the day I bought my first house. But there are also moments that matter that relate to work, such as the 1st day at a new job, the day you get a promotion or even the day you leave a job. Quite often organizations miss out on celebrating these moments that matter for their employees. Instead of thinking of employees as individuals they think of them simply as workers. In this new world of work where we have such an integration between work and life it is so important to acknowledge these moments that matter and make them special. These moments are what allow us to create amazing experiences for our employees. One example of a missed opportunity is the first day at a new job. If we could set up our employees for a great first experience this could be a moment they truly remember, even 10 or 15 years down the road. But oftentimes the first day on a job can be a moment of terror, anxiety or even regret for people. They show up and it takes them 15 minutes to locate someone who can show them where to go, when they get to their desk the computer and phone aren’t set up, no one says hi or welcomes them, they sit alone at lunch, etc… What if instead we chose to make that moment extraordinary by having a designated person ready and waiting for the new employee with a smile and an information packet, all of the equipment was set up, turned on and ready to go, we made it a point for other employees to stop by and say hi, and we provided a free lunch for that first day. Wouldn’t that make a difference. So, stop and ask yourself, what are the moments that matter to your employees and how can you celebrate those moments? ---------------------------------------------- Website: http://www.thefutureorganization.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jacobm Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FuturistJacob/ Newsletter https://thefutureorganization.com/newsletter Amazon Book Page: https://www.amazon.com/Jacob-Morgan/e/B00703V3WO/ ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Why Following Your Passion is Terrible Career Advice - Jacob Morgan
 
01:47
We have all heard it before, the advice that many people have given when asked for career advice or when talking to college students entering the workforce--”Follow your passion”. But there are some challenges with that statement. First of all, telling people to follow their passion assumes that the passion is something that lives outside of them and they have to chase it. The second issue is that we assume it is a static thing, that there is one passion it is in a certain location and that’s where you have to go. The truth is our passions change-- as we get older, as we go through experiences in life and as we expand our horizons. Thirdly, the problem is that often we are not able to identify a passion before we choose to pursue something. It happens all the time, someone tries something new and that sparks a new passion. So to think that we have to simply follow a passion would take away the possibility of finding a new passion in something we didn’t think of before. The real question is: how can we bring our passion with us to everything that we do. It is better to bring that passion with you instead of trying to chase it. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Think Like A Futurist - Jacob Morgan
 
02:55
Imagine you are looking through the narrow end of a paper cone. The space in the cone closest to your eye is very narrow and closed in, but the farther out into the cone you look the wider it becomes. Futurists use a tool/technique called the cone of possibilities to explore different scenarios that could happen in the future. The narrow part of the cone is the near future, it includes present time and a couple of months or even a couple of years into the future. But as the cone gets wider it signifies time further out into the future--think 10, 20 or even 50+ years in the future. It is wider because there are many more scenarios/possibilities that could happen that far in the future vs. what could happen in the near future. Futurists use a couple of different ways to think in terms of scenarios. The first scenario they use is to look at their ideal scenario. What they would like to happen. The second scenario they use is a likely scenario, what might happen realistically. Then the third scenario is to look at what could happen, but is not likely to happen. Futurists can then use these different scenarios to look at anything the future could bring so that they are not surprised by anything. We can also use this technique ourselves to define and outline our own scenarios. By doing this we can take a look at our ideal scenarios and see what we would need to do personally to get to that ideal scenario and we can look at all the other possible scenarios so that we can prepare for anything that may happen. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

People Analytics: A New Way to Make Decisions in the Workplace - Jacob Morgan
 
02:45
In the past we have always depended on humans and their ideas, intuitions, and feelings to figure out certain issues in our companies such as how to build teams, work on projects and carry out performance evaluations. Now, we have an increase in devices and ways to collect data in the workplace so we are able to track anything and everything. With this move towards data collection and technology we have a new field emerging, people analytics. With this new field we are able to add in data and science alongside of our intuitions to help our companies function as successfully as possible. Data can help us figure out things such as, what the most successful leaders in organizations do, what the key qualities are that make up an amazing team or how the best customer service professionals talk to their customers (and for how long). I don’t think that we will ever completely remove the human aspect, but I believe that by combining data with human ideas, intuition and feelings companies will be able to make better, more informed decisions. This truly is an exciting and fascinating time. Successful businesses should make an investment in people analytics. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

Why You Need To Learn To Speak Up At Work - Jacob Morgan
 
02:02
I constantly hear stories about how people feel they are working for an organization where they feel like they don’t have a voice or where they don’t feel like they can be themselves. It doesn’t have to be this way! We have to learn how to speak up at work. It is so important for every employee to participate in group conversations, to give feedback to managers, to be honest and to give their opinions and point of view. Not only will it make employees feel heard and appreciated, but it will also help the organization to be the best that it can be. Many people find it intimidating to speak up at work and to voice their opinions, but the truth is most of the time it will be met with a positive response. Speaking up could bring up issues, challenges or ideas that your managers and coworkers have never considered before. It could spark change or at least start a dialogue. If for some reason you get a negative response from speaking up, then maybe that isn’t the organization for you and you need to think about making a move. Either way, whether you get a positive or negative response, speaking up is in your best interest. The worst thing you can do for yourself, or your organization, is to just stay quiet and let everything just get shaped around you without having a say. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

#TheFuturein5 Episode 6: Will Amazon's Echo Change the World?

I recently purchased an Amazon Echo, a voice activate virtual assistant that does everything from play music and read the news to create to do lists and order products from Amazon.

Can Management Be Replaced By AI?
 
04:18
There are new advancements in AI every day and people are questioning what types of jobs will be taken over by this new technology. Some people may even ask, can AI replace management and managers? To answer this question we first have to look at what it is that managers do. Managers are put in place to enforce protocols, make tough decisions and lead teams. In my opinion, I think that AI could replace bad managers. If an algorithm could be created to allow AI to make difficult decisions they could actually eliminate the guesswork and emotional decision making processes in order to make better choices than humans. In that aspect they could take over. With bad managers that is all they are doing is making decisions. So they could potentially be replaced. Good managers, however, don’t just make decisions. They lead people, they engage, inspire, connect and empower. Software is not able to do this. Software cannot empathize or sympathize with employees. So do I think AI could replace managers? I think it could replace bad managers, but not good ones. Hopefully the infusion of AI will help bring out better managers who really focus on great employee experience. What do you think?

Is Job hopping Good or Bad?
 
07:05
How long should you stay at a job before you leave and if you keep switching jobs is that a bad thing? I live in the Bay Area and I can say from looking at my Linkedin stream that people are job hopping like rabbits. Many people are concerned with how switching jobs makes them look on paper and we've all had that awkward conversation with a hiring manager where we are asked, "why did you only stay at your previous job for 9 months?" In this episode of the future in 5 I talk about why job hoping isn't always a bad thing. Have you ever job hopped and if so why? Did you ever get grilled by a hiring manger for not staying at a job long enough? --------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

The Employee Experience Equation - Jacob Morgan
 
07:19
Employee experience is the next battleground to attract and retain the best talent. Creating great experiences for our employees is critical to succeed in the future of work, but the problem is there is a lot of confusion around what employee experience actually means. Some of the main issues we have to address are: ● What is the difference between employee experience and employee engagement? ● What is the ROI of employee experience? ● How do we create great experiences? I will be exploring all of these issues in similar short videos in the coming weeks. In this video you will learn the three environments that make up the employee experience equation and the impact they have on your workforce. ---------------------------------------------- Jacob Morgan is a keynote speaker, best-selling author (his most recent book is “The Future of Work”), and futurist.

The Price Of Being A Change Maker - Jacob Morgan
 
01:47
There are a lot of people who feel like they are the lone changemaker in their organization. You may be in that position right now. It can feel extremely frustrating and lonely at times, but that shouldn’t stop you. Changemakers are persistent, resilient, and determined--they have to be. As a changemaker you will probably get told ‘no’ a lot, you may be rejected, and you may find that people around you have a hard time keeping up. There is a price to pay to be a changemaker, but it is worth it. Don’t give up! Keeping pushing your organization and the people around you. The change will happen, maybe slower than you want, but keep pushing forward and it will happen. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Dealing With Change Management Inside Of Organizations - Jacob Morgan
 
02:14
Humans are creatures of habit; we are not fond of change. But is it the actual change that we find difficult or is it the process of change? I recently heard a quote that makes so much sense, it is “Everybody loves Disneyland, but nobody likes the journey down there”. That is so true! It isn’t so much the actual outcome of the change that challenges us, it is the long drawn out process of change. Individuals and organizations can get excited about the end result of change, they can learn to embrace it. The hardest part is the journey to the change; that’s what causes the anxiety, fear and frustration. The journey to change is filled with bureaucracy, arguments, tension and a lot of back and forth. If we can understand this and accept that the journey will be the challenge to get to that final outcome, we can find ways to make that journey easier. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

The Definition Of "Work" Has Changed - Jacob Morgan
 
02:24
In the past when we thought about work we mostly thought of it as a job where we put in our time and then we make money to pay the bills. But the mindset around work is shifting and work is much more than just a paycheck. Now work is more about a sense of self, identity, and purpose. The impact that our work has on our customers, our communities and the world gives us a reason for being. People aren’t picking jobs for just salary anymore, they want to feel as though their work has meaning. What are you doing as an organization to account for this new way of thinking about work? Are you still thinking about job openings in your organization as a position to fill with a warm body who has decent skills? Or are you thinking about how someone can use that job to bring meaning and purpose to their life and how they will be able to impact the world around them within that role? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

In this episode of the Future in Five I talk about the evolution of knowledge workers to "learning workers." Knowledge is now a commodity and to be the smartest person in the room all you need is a smartphone.

How To Unlock Discretionary Effort Of Your Employees - Jacob Morgan
 
02:05
In order to go above and beyond, you must learn how to unlock the true potential of your employees. Companies that learn how to do this will stay on top. There are some companies that just seem to stand out above the rest of their competition. Why is that? Why is it that, even though there isn’t that much of a difference between one bank and another or one grocery store to another, there are a few companies that are able to go above and beyond for their customers? The answer is the companies who go above and beyond take care of their employees. They invest in the experience of their people which in turn unlocks the discretionary effort of their people. When employees feel that they are being invested in, cared for, and respected it makes them want to go above and beyond for their customers, co-workers and the company. The problem is most companies don’t generally put in the time and effort needed to create a unique employee experience that fits their company. One of your company’s most important assets is your people. If you really want to have a significant impact inside and outside of your company, start by investing in your people. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

A Simple Explanation of The Internet of Things - Jacob Morgan
 
02:57
The Internet of Things (IoT) is having a huge impact on the way we live and the way we work. But many people are still trying to figure out what IoT actually is. Here is my simple explanation. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a huge topic of discussion these days and it is having a profound impact on the way we live and work. But many people are still trying to figure out what IoT actually means. Simply put, IoT is all devices that have an on and off switch, are powered by electricity or batteries that have the ability to be connected together and share data with each other. You may already have a lot of these devices in your home, such as Smart TVs, Smartphones, Fitbits, Alexa, etc…. Eventually there will be many other objects in this category as technology allows things such as toothbrushes, coffee pots, cars, and calendars to be connected. There will be a day when you can wake up to your alarm and all at once your coffee pot will know that you are up and start making a cup of coffee and your smart car will know when to start and come to pick you up. You may even have a car that can notify your office when you are stuck in traffic and running late and move your appointments back on your calendar. We are already seeing a lot of new appliances and wearables on the market that can connect to each other, like the fridge that can look inside and tell you what food items you are low on and add these food items to a grocery list on your phone. IoT can make our lives easier, more productive and more efficient. But are we ready to live in this kind of a world where everything is connected and sharing data? ---------------------------------------------- Website: http://www.thefutureorganization.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jacobm Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FuturistJacob/ Newsletter https://thefutureorganization.com/newsletter Amazon Book Page: https://www.amazon.com/Jacob-Morgan/e/B00703V3WO/ -------------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

AI and technology are at the forefront of so many conversations today, but why is that when neither AI or tech are new concepts, they have been around for decades. The reason is there are 4 major elements that are working together to create the perfect storm that is causing AI and tech to progress more quickly than ever before. The 4 elements are: We have more data than ever before The cost of technology is decreasing The speed of technology is increasing Moore’s Law: the number of transistors on a chip doubles every year while the costs are halved. All of these things are coming together to cause AI and technology to progress at a much faster pace than we have ever seen before. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Get my free training series and learn how the world’s best organizations create amazing employee experiences: http://bit.ly/2GcvaxF What are the core values of your organization? Most likely they include things like trust, fun, collaboration, innovation, integrity, doing the right thing, etc...Those values all sound great, but if they are just words on your website or in the pages of your handbook they are meaningless. Every company has similar core values, so what sets your company apart from the rest? What matters is that your core values come to life inside of your organization on a daily basis. Your employees should be able to look around and see integrity. They should see innovation. They should see trust. If not, then what is the point of having those core values?

The Employee Life Cycle is a Myth, Here's Why - Jacob Morgan
 
01:50
In our organizations we like to put the life cycle of an employee into a neat series of buckets such as recruitment, onboarding and separation. But is the employee lifecycle model really an accurate way to look at an employee’s time at our organizations, or is there a better way? In our organizations we like to put the life cycle of an employee into a neat series of buckets such as recruitment, onboarding and separation. But this is more of the organization’s perspective of what the employee lifecycle should look like, not so much an accurate picture of what employees really encounter during their time in an organization. When we put employees into these rigid, pre-determined buckets it really causes us to view them as worker bees, not individuals. If we look at this from the employee’s perspective, their time at the organization looks quite a bit different. We would see that their time not only includes recruitment, onboarding and development, but it also includes personal aspects such as having a baby or buying a house for the first time. We would also see that it is hard to have such rigid boxes. Development, for example, is not a one time thing it really should be happening constantly. Employees who are working for you view themselves as individuals and we are seeing this shift from work/life balance to work/life blurring. Shouldn’t we create an employee lifecycle that reflects this reality? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

Why People Become Freelancers
 
06:59
This episode of The Future In 5 I talk about why people become freelancers. The freelance economy is one of the most exciting trends that I’m seeing over the next few years. For example, studies show that by 2020, 40 percent of the workforce will become freelancers. And, we are starting to see the rise of organizations offering freelance and on-demand work. What that means for organizations is that they are going to have to think differently about what it means to innovate, service and compete. So, why are people becoming freelancers to begin with? Being a freelancer for the past eight years, I share some insights into my experience as well as the main reasons such as freedom and flexibility, autonomy, no income ceiling  choices. Basically, you are your own boss. I think there has never been a better time than now to become a freelancer. I’ll be exploring this further in the coming weeks. So, tune in! ----------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Why HR And IT Need To Get Married
 
04:46
I'm back with another Future in Five, this time from London where I'm keynoting an event for Gartner. Recently, I've noticed a huge disconnect between HR and IT teams which is causing a big mess within organizations. These teams are operating as separate, independent units when they need to say "I do" and get married! Why? We all know that HR deals with people, IT with tech. Since tech serves people in the workplace, the two are intertwined and it is time to start treating things that way. HR practitioners should be working closer with CIOs and IT teams to determine what technologies make the most sense in their organization. CIOs and IT teams need to begin looking beyond the features of technology to the needs of employees that will be using the technology. So what do you think? Are you ready for HR and IT to form a strong partnership to prepare for the changing workplace? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Why Google's Alphabet Is A Genius Idea
 
05:23
In this episode of the Future In 5 I talk about Alphabet becoming the parent company of Google. Prior to this announcement, Google had a lot of different ventures  its capital arm, Google X, Google search engine, Google Nest  just to name a few. In my book, The Future of Work, I talk about the 14 principals of the future organization. One of those principals is around the need for organizations to operate more like small companies. By the creation of this parent company, all of these organization can now really focus on their key areas, be independent, have autonomy. Larry Page states in his article that this will help the organization become more innovative and able to take more risks  and I think that is exactly what the future of work is about. I think the biggest plus for this initiative is that it is a large company learning how to operate as a lot of smaller companies. And I think that is a winning formula when it comes to the future of work. Curious to hear what you think, so listen to my full discussion on Google’s new parent company and leave me a comment below! ----------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

AI and Automation Can't Replace Being Human  - Jacob Morgan
 
02:12
There is one thing we as humans possess that technology will never have and if we can hone in on it, we can overcome the technology takeover. The topic of automation and AI in the workplace keeps coming up. A lot of people are worried about job loss and technology take over. One major thing that comes up when thinking about our move to automation is what is going to be the role of humans? What will be our purpose in this new automated world of the future? After traveling all over the country and meeting a ton of people from all sorts of industries and backgrounds I am convinced that our main role as humans is to be human. There are no machines or robots that have our ability to connect, empathize, communicate, and sympathize. We also have the ability to be vulnerable. Technology just cannot replace us in these aspects. So we need to keep learning how to be more human and we have to keep connecting and building relationships. Those of us who are good at being human will grow, expand and continue to be successful. So don’t forget how to be human! ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

The #1 Cause Of Stress In Our Lives And How To Manage It - Jacob Morgan
 
03:30
What are you doing to manage your stress at work? It is so easy these days to get burnt out and overworked with the current pace of work. We are constantly bombarded with emails, text messages, phone calls, new technologies, new projects, urgent deadlines, etc… In the United States 25% of workers consider their job to be the #1 cause of stress in their lives. Stress doesn’t just affect our quality of work, but it also affects our personal lives and our relationships with others. We have to find ways to deal with our stress. It cannot be solely up to the organization to help employees deal with stress. Yes they can provide health and wellness programs, they can have benefits that help employees pay for mental and physical health issues but ultimately the responsibility lies with the individual employee. First of all it is important to pay attention to your stress levels. Take time to analyze and audit your stress levels. Try to figure out what your stress triggers are, set boundaries at work, exercise, eat well, get enough sleep and remember tomorrow is a new day. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Don't Empower Your Employees, Stop Disempowering Them - Jacob Morgan
 
01:34
One of the common questions I have been asked in the past is, how do we empower our employees. For me the answer has always been about investing in employee experience. But lately I have been thinking about the root cause of this problem. Why do we need to empower our people in the first place? If you think about an employee’s first day at work, they are already engaged, excited, they want to be there. They are already empowered. The problem lies with us as leaders. We actually disempower our employees, not on purpose, but over time it happens. We bog our employees down with rules, regulations, policies, hierarchy, bureaucracy and other outdated workplace practices. And then once we bog them down and strip them of their power we ask, “how do we empower our employees?”. Instead of empowering them, we need to figure out how to not disempower them to begin with. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

This episode of The Future in 5 is about staying relevant as the world of work changes. I share three tips that we can all do to ensure we stay relevant and current even as the world of work continues to change at a rapid pace. They are: 1) leverage the online educational environment to educate and teach yourself the skills needed for the jobs that you want to have; 2) leverage social channels creating filters to stay on top of current information; and 3) leverage communities relevant to your interests in the future of work. And as a bonus tip, don’t forget to leverage traditional networking environments and relevant publications. What do you do to stay relevant?

Employee Experience Cannot Happen Unless We Embrace Empathy - Jacob Morgan
 
02:34
What is Empathy and why do we need it? A lot of times we confuse empathy with sympathy. In the past organizations have been good with being sympathetic to employees, but in the future of work it is empathy, not sympathy that is crucial for organizations to have. A lot of people confuse empathy and sympathy. Sympathy is feeling sorry for someone else’s circumstances, empathy on the other hand is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others. It means putting yourself in someone else’s shoes to not just say you feel sorry for them, but to actually imagine how hard it must be to be in that situation. In the past organizations have been good at being sympathetic, but they have struggled with being empathetic. Unlike in the past when most organizations had hierarchies where there really was no need for upper management to be empathetic, in today’s organizations we are beginning to see why it is so crucial to have empathy in the workplace. We have different generations of workers, we have work/life integration that is starting to happen, we have a war for the best talent and many other reasons why employee experience is becoming a priority for organizations. But the fact is, employee experience cannot happen unless we embrace empathy. We have to be understanding when an employee has a sick kid, we have to be genuinely interested in getting feedback, we have to build collaboration and increase transparency. To do these things we have to have empathy. Don’t be a sympathetic organization, be an empathetic organization. Empathy is the one thing that is going to differentiate your company from all the other companies out there. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Who Will Rule the Future of Work? Generalists or Specialists?
 
03:21
When thinking about the future of work, especially in regards to freelance or gig jobs, do you think it is better to be a generalist or a specialist? A generalist is someone who is fairly good at performing a broad range of jobs, whereas a specialist is very skilled in one particular type of work. For example, a handyman vs. an electrician. A handyman can come into your house and work on a large array of problems such as basic plumbing, electrical, or appliance issues. An electrician is only going to be able to come in and fix electrical problems, but he is going to be able to do so with much more expertise than a general handyman. Some people might say it is better to be one or the other, but when looking at the future of work I think it is important to be both a generalist and a specialist. In order to really succeed it is important to have, what I call, a T-shaped skillset. The top of the T representing a very broad, general skillset that you are reasonably good at and the rest of the T representing a very strong ability in one specific area. This T-shaped skill set really goes along with the number one skill in the future of work, which is to learn how to learn. Do you agree? Use #AskTheFuturist on Twitter to share your thoughts on this subject. You can also use the hashtag to ask me a question for a future episode. I look forward to seeing what you think! ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Are You Thinking About Linear Change Or Exponential Change? - Jacob Morgan
 
01:59
When we normally think about change, whether in our organizations or even in our personal lives, we tend to think about linear change. But what would happen if we thought about exponential change instead? What’s the difference? Well a couple of years ago the famous futurist, Ray Kurzweil did an interview with the Financial Times and in the interview he compared linear growth to exponential growth. He said, “30 steps linearly gets you to 30. One, two, three, four, step 30 you’re at 30. With exponential growth, it’s one, two, four, eight. Step 30, you’re at a billion” So taking 30 linear steps is not going to get you very far, but taking 30 exponential steps would be the equivalent of traveling around the world 26 times! There’s no telling where you would end up. We live in an exponential world where things are changing very quickly, especially technology. In order to stay relevant we need to take our linear assumptions, ideas and concepts and adjust them for an exponential world. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Employment Engagement vs. Employee Manipulation - Jacob Morgan
 
01:39
Investment in employee engagement has never been higher, but engagement scores have never been lower. What is causing the disconnect? Employee engagement is at the center of a lot of conversations inside of organizations these days. The problem is, investment in employee engagement has never been higher while the employee engagement scores have never been lower. So what is causing this disconnect? Most organizations want their employees to be happy while working, however they are going about it the wrong way. Instead of redesigning the core workplace practices around the employees, organizations are keeping their outdated workplace practices while trying to give the employees special perks, thinking that will make them happy. To truly impact your employee experience you must start by redesigning your core workplace practices. When organizations decide to forgo this step with the employees in mind and they choose to simply throw some perks at the employees, it can feel like employee manipulation. If you want to have engaged employees, start with redesigned core workplace practices. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Is Technology Really Improving Our Lives? - Jacob Morgan
 
02:07
The pace of technology in our world today is faster than it has ever been. We go out and buy the newest phone out on the market with all of the bells and whistles and the newest innovations and then a few months later it is obsolete as there’s a newer, better phone available. We always hear about how technology is benefiting our society. It boosts productivity and innovation, it provides greater accessibility to products and services and it allows for greater opportunities. Technology provides great benefits, but are we using it in the right way? According to a chart created by Our World in Data showing the price changes in consumer goods and services over the last 20 years, we may not be using technology in the best way. The chart shows that the price of TVs, clothes, software, toys and cars have either stayed the same or plummeted. At the same time the cost of things that everyone really, truly needs-- such as healthcare, tuition, and childcare-- has skyrocketed. Are we taking all of the benefits from technology and putting them into the wrong things? My question is, if technology can create better productivity, innovation and opportunity, why aren’t we seeing that chart flipped? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

The Future of Work is Employee Experience - Jacob Morgan
 
02:13
A study about satisfaction carried out by a professor of psychology gives us something to think about in the workplace. Tom Gilovich, a professor of psychology at Cornell University, did a study along with some members of his team to find out how levels of satisfaction are affected by spending money on experiences versus spending money on physical things. Gilovich and his team found that people who spend money on physical things such as phones, computers, houses or cars tend to have a drop in satisfaction as time goes on. On the other hand, they found that people who spend money on experiences, like skydiving, traveling or learning a new skill, have higher satisfaction levels overtime. How can we translate this phenomenon into the workplace? A lot of times the relationship we have with our organizations tends to stay very transactional. When we first get the job our satisfaction levels are high, we are excited, expectant and happy. However, as time goes on we tend to become more and more dissatisfied with our jobs. We get bored, disconnected and burned out. Organizations need to find a way to allow employees to feel as if they have purchased an experience--as if they have climbed a mountain or gone skydiving. They need to find a way to help employees get that feeling of increased satisfaction as time goes on. If organizations could do this successfully, think of what that would do to the way we work, the way we feel and the way we live. What do you think? How do you think organizations could fix the way we view work? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

How to Tell If You Have a Good or Bad Corporate Culture - Jacob Morgan
 
02:00
Corporate culture is really hard to define, but I think it can be defined as the side effects of working for your organization. Take the example of some well-known prescription drugs that are out on the market today. You see advertisements for them on TV and they list off a huge list of potential side effects that could happen to you as a result of taking the medicine. Some side effects include hair loss, weight gain, bleeding from the eyes or even death. You may sit there and watch those commercials and think, who would take these medicines when they have all of these potential side effects. But the fact is, many of us experience these same side effects from the organization we work for. Due to work stress, burnout, bad leaders etc… we experience hair loss, weight gain, arguments with our spouses and sometimes even death. The question I pose to executives is, if I were to bottle up what it’s like to work at your organization into a pill form, would you swallow it? If the answer is no, how can you expect your employees to swallow that pill if you aren’t willing to? If you are not willing to swallow that pill, you have to ask yourself why not and what can we do to fix it. How can you create an organization where you yourself would swallow that pill? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

The Top Three Tips To Better Integrate Work and Life
 
04:50
I have a very special guest for this week’s Future in Five, Anne Raimondi, SVP Operations at Zendesk. Anne shares her top three tips to better integrate work and life! Tip number one is to “Share Your Story” with your colleges. This can be done with new or existing colleagues, as a conversation starter to get to know your team. Showing your personal self at work helps to build connections Tip number two is to remember to be in control of technology. Something simple as putting your device away during dinner with the family will help you to be present and focused on what is unfolding in front of you. Anne shares her great “no scroll” tip for managing time on social media. Tip number three is to get out into the community and volunteer. Challenging yourself to do something different helps to provide a new perspective on work and life. The shift from work life balance to work life integration is happening. Embracing the integration as a positive thing will make it feel like an opportunity, and not a struggle. ----------------------------------------¬------ ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

What is the One Question We Should Be Asking To Measure Employee Engagement? - Jacob Morgan
 
01:54
We are obsessed with Employee Engagement in our companies today, but we give employees surveys to fill out with 50-100 questions on them. There has got to be an easier and more direct way to find out if our employees are engaged at work. Have you ever had to fill out an employee engagement survey that was 50 to 100 questions long? I think most people these days have. Organizations are obsessed with measuring employee engagement and they feel that in order to get a true picture of how they are doing they have to ask hundreds of questions once or twice a year. But does this really give an accurate picture of engagement? In a marriage you and your spouse have a good idea of whether or not the relationship is healthy. You could ask your spouse directly, “are you happy with our relationship”, and they would be able to answer you immediately. You wouldn’t have to give them a form with 50 questions to get that answer. In the same way, employees know if they are engaged at work and enjoy their job and if you ask them they can give you a yes or no answer on the spot. We need to come up with a way to simplify the process. Our challenge is we have to find the one question that we should be asking employees to find out if they are happy, engaged, passionate and feel like they belong. What do you think that one question should be? ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world? Will cars drive themselves?

Why You Should Think Of Your Physical Workspace, As Being A Person
 
06:55
First impressions are important. When meeting someone for the first time and they are disheveled and very casual, you can get a very different vibe from them if they are wearing a suit and tie and completely buttoned up. The same feelings happen employees walk into a workspace. If an employee walks into an office and all the walls are stark, everyone is in cubicles, and people are dressed professional and volume is extremely low - this gives off a vibe that the organization is conservative, boring, and not very exciting. Now imagine walking into a different workspace with an open floor plan, touch screens on the walls, and workers buzzing about actively engaging each other. This brings a much more exciting visual, right? Thinking of a physical workspace as a person, will help determine what type of vibe you want to portray to not only your employees, but potential customers as well. This can also spark change and create a new energy inside your environment. Many forward thinking organizations are looking at their physical space, and taking into account what type of vibe and connection they want to build within their companies. The physical space should give off a great impression, as that flows into the space and energy level of each employee that steps inside. ----------------------------------------¬------ ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

The Top Three Tips For Building High Preforming And Effective Teams
 
03:23
Cisco just completed a study on how to create the best teams so I'm here today with Francine Katsoudas, Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer of Cisco, to discuss the findings. The first tip to building high performing and effective teams is to focus on the individual strengths of each team member. Know what is special and unique about them, recognize how they work the best, and play on those strengths. Second, create an environment where every individual feels their values are shared. Your team will be more willing to put their thoughts forward in this environment. The last tip is to create a safe and trusting environment where every one feels like their teammates have their back. You can do this by following the first two tips! The best teams are formed in an environment where members feel valued and comfortable taking risks. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Autonomy And Self Management Are Not The Same Thing
 
06:41
Autonomy and Self-Management are two different concepts but they are starting to be used interchangeably. Morning Star Farms is a tomato processing company that utilizes self-management. At Morning Star Farms, there are no managers. Everything is self-directed and self-driven. Autonomy is different. Autonomy means that there is someone who sets strategic direction for the employee, but the employee can decide the direction they go in to get to the end result that is tasked by the manager. Managers can guide, and provide feedback, but they will not watch over the employees shoulder every step of the way. In the self-management example, the employee or independent worker controls everything. They have accountability to themselves. Self-management is exactly what it sounds like. An individual can choose everything in regards to their work, such as hours worked, projects and commitments. In autonomy, there is a set manager who provides strategic directions, feedback, and administrative tasks. Autonomy also allows freedom to work as one sees fit, but there is still accountabilities and structures that the employee has to work within. Many organizations are now practicing autonomy, but not self-management. Employees at companies such as Whirlpool, Cisco, Facebook and Google, are given the freedom to work how they want to work, when, and where. But, they are not given the freedom to set the strategic direction. Organizations where employees have complete control are increasing. Companies such as Morning Star Farms, Sun Hydraulics, Valve Software, are all allowing self-management. At Valve, for example, employees are responsible for their projects from start to finish. Self-managed organizations have no managers or direct supervisors, individuals are able to operate freely on the same level as managers together. In autonomy, there is structure, but an individual can decide their course to reach their destination. Curious to hear what you think!

The Top Three Tips To Ace Any Job Interview
 
04:33
We've all been there... sweaty palms and butterflies in the stomach. Being interviewed by a prospective employer can be very nerve wracking! You can cut down on the jitters by being prepared. I'm here today with Beth Taska, CHRO at 24 Hour Fitness, to discuss the top three tips for succeeding in a job interview. First, tell a personal story. Practice the story ahead of time so you can be sure it is no longer than 2 minutes. It needs to have a level of level of vulnerability and authenticity... talk about a time in your life that you've overcome something and learned from it. Second, prepare your answers ahead of time. All interviews generally consist of the same questions so think about your answers and have a plan for any question that comes your way. Last, and possibly most important, be okay with whatever happens in the interview. If it doesn't work out, it just doesn't. There's always next time! So in review, the top three tips to ace any job interview are to tell a story, be prepared for the questions, and be okay with the outcome of interview. Thanks, Beth! ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE The Future in Five is a regular video series where best-selling author, speaker, and futurist Jacob Morgan shares his ideas, insights, and commentary around the future of work in five minutes or less!

Change Takes Time to Happen, Don’t Give Up! - Jacob Morgan
 
02:50
There has been a major shift in the way we view work. In the past when a company had a position to fill they announced the opening and people jumped at the opportunity. There wasn’t any talk of employee perks, health and wellness programs, workplace flexibility or workplace design. Someone needed a job, they found out about the job and they applied. Now if an organization has an opening people don’t just jump at the opportunity. They want to hear about what it’s like to work at that company, they want to know what the company perks are, they want to know whether the office is an open floor plan and whether or not they have the latest technology. People have options now, so they don’t have to jump at the first opportunity, they can wait for the job that is a perfect fit for them. That is why it is so important for companies today to focus on employee experience. Companies have to be able to understand their Reason for Being and they have to be able to answer questions like, what is it like to work for your company and why should I want to come work there? Organizations, we need to do a better job convincing people why they should work for us. --------------------------------------------- Website: http://www.thefutureorganization.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/jacobm Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FuturistJacob/ Newsletter https://thefutureorganization.com/newsletter Amazon Book Page: https://www.amazon.com/Jacob-Morgan/e/B00703V3WO/ -------------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?

Why Your Organization Should Stop Trying to Be Like Google - Jacob Morgan
 
02:21
Companies like Google, Netflix and Facebook have great perks and workspaces, but just trying to copy and paste their ideas into your company will not get you very far. There has been a lot of talk over the past few years about the unique and impressive things that companies like Google, Netflix and Facebook have implemented. These companies have some great employee perks such as free food, massages, work flexibility and unlimited sick days. They have fun and exciting workspaces that include rock climbing walls, breathtaking views, on site gyms with trainers, open floor plans and napping pods. A lot of company leaders see what Google, Netflix and Facebook are doing and they feel they have to do the same to attract and retain their people, but this is a horrible idea. The fact is, companies like Google are not making these decisions on a whim, so neither should you. They are implementing these things based on people analytics, data, research and studies. They reach out to their employees to find out what they want and need and that is what determines their next move. Every company is unique and therefore simply copying Google is dangerous and it won’t get you very far. The truth is there is no secret to figuring out what perks and benefits to offer your employees. If you want to create an organization where people genuinely want to show up to work you just have to ask your people and listen to them. Focus on what makes your company unique; what are your values, what are your goals, what do your people care about? Trying to be like Google kills what makes your organization special. So instead of trying to copy and paste from Google, try figuring out what is important to your organization and to your people before implementing perks, benefits or a new workspace. ---------------------------------------------- ABOUT THE FUTURE IN FIVE Will AI take over the world?
