Why It’s Imperative To Have An Agile Talent Management Strategy

Why It’s Imperative To Have An Agile Talent Management Strategy

Being a large corporation with deep pockets and abundant resources used to be quite advantageous. They had an easy time attracting top talent because everyone dreamed of being employed by them and they had big budgets to support their benefits programs. But those days are behind us – largely because we’re now living in an exponential age where rapid growth and agility mean much more. Corporate mission and vision statements have lost their ability to motivate and retain talent. Today, it’s about a massively transformative purpose that facilitates the acquisition and retention of quality of talent. And, it’s about having an agile talent management strategy that compliments your business goals and purpose. Large corporations that were traditionally seen as the talent market’s most desired place to work at are now having a hard time competing because they aren’t agile enough with their talent management approach and strategies. Much has to do with their rigid and dated processes, but it’s also their inability to adapt to the digital age –...

6 Signs We’re Living In An Exponential Age

The year 2017 is deep in the midst of the Exponential Age. Some thought leaders have dubbed the era as the 4th Industrial Revolution and there are no signs that the rapid growth we’re currently experiencing is going to slow down. There’s no artificial bubble that’s ballooning here. There’s no speculative growth. It’s real and it’s happening now. We’re at the core of a revolution that’s going to alter our lifestyle, the way we commute and communicate, and how we get work done. We’re living in an Exponential Age! An age where technology is being leveraged for rapid growth in every industry and sector. Just to get an idea of where the impact of the exponential growth has been experienced and seen, here’s a peek into some of the growth that’s happening around us. 1. Wearable Tech We’ve seen plenty of Virtual Reality and Fitness gear that has helped enhance our entertainment and lifestyle, but wearable tech isn’t stopping just there.

Why You Must Transform Yourself Into An Exponential Thinker

Why You Must Transform Yourself Into An Exponential Thinker

If you look at the lives of people 50 years ago you’d see that the change experienced by their generation, the generation before them and the generation after was pretty much linear. What do I mean? Let’s consider your grandfather. There’s evidence that his parents, his grandparents, and his children (i.e. your parent) were used the same tools, lived similar lives, were exposed to similar products, foods and services. Things pretty much moved in the same pace for those three generations. There was growth, however, it was linear. Today, much has changed in terms of global growth. You’re now using tools and technology and leading lives much different from your parents and your grandparents. In fact, your children are exposed to many more innovations and technologies than you were at their age. But it’s not just the fact that their experiences have been enhanced, it’s the pace at which growth around them is moving forward. Today, your children are carrying smartphones that are faster, more capable and cheaper than...

How Disruptors Have Rocked the Corporate World

How Disruptors Have Rocked the Corporate World

For just over a decade now the digital age has dramatically altered and accelerated the pace of technological growth, innovations, user adaptability and the way information is shared. The world has seen massive growth in new technologies and businesses that’s pushing the boundaries of normal competition. The speed with which new technologies are being adopted by users, and how user needs constantly shift has dramatically rocked and disrupted incumbents. In a very short period of time many industries have been caught off-guard by competition that weren’t on the incumbents’ radar. In fact, some of these disruptors didn’t even exist too long ago. The exponential change the world has experienced in the recent years has been so rapid that most organizations haven’t been able to cope with it. In the list of Fortune 500 companies of 1955, only 12% exist today. And that massive decline isn’t slowing down either. Today, startups are fast gaining traction and gaining larger market share, higher share prices and total equity than companies that have...

How To Define Your Organization’s Massive Corporate Purpose

How To Define Your Organization’s Massive Corporate Purpose

Business leaders and their teams are often reminded that the world around them is rapidly growing and constantly evolving. Unfortunately for many organizations the growth is much faster than they can cope with. Some are caught by surprise and by then it’s too late to amend their environment to cater to new demands. Others are struggling to play catch-up. In either case you could say it’s becoming even more challenging for organizations to continuously make an impact because of the absence of a corporate purpose. Some organizations, however, have a different set of challenges altogether. Their growth has been exponential attributed by the disruptive technologies they’ve brought to the market. Does it mean they have it all figured out and can weather the changes of the world they work in? Not quite, because once that disruption is absorbed and widely accepted, the big question that hangs over their heads is what’s next? And that itself can push them far behind the pace of the changing world. So, what does...

6 Corporate Superpowers You Should Have

6 Corporate Superpowers You Should Have

There are several heroes among us who do brilliant things on a daily basis. They all share traits that are commonly found in heroes such as confidence, integrity, humility and vision. But only a few of these heroes go beyond the realm of normal and are far more superior. The corporate superpowers and abilities they possess is what makes them great. Fortunately we don’t have to be born with these abilities and can learn and develop them through our experience and knowledge. Here are some corporate superpowers you should be learning and using to transform yourself into a great leader. 1. Superhuman Hearing Superman has the ability to hear sounds clearly from a great distance. He simply focuses on what matters and zones out of all other noise that could possibly distract him. Leaders who possess this corporate superpower have proven that they can hear things that people generally tend to miss out. Call it a “super listening skill” that allows leaders to read the message between the lines...
