Have you noticed that there’s a lot of talk about “the changing world of employment”?
Conversations about positive leadership, authenticity, employee engagement and meaningful workplaces are becoming the norm. There are voices in this community which speak louder than others and which disseminate ideas which would have seemed radical just a few years ago.
Here’s a list of thought leaders whose ideas I get inspired by (OK, so there’s 6, not 5). If you’re an executive or a manager and you, like me, wrestle with the question “what will the workplaces of tomorrow look like?”, you’ll enjoy these:
