Fear of Moving On!

This isn’t your Grandma’s FOMO
We’re not talking about “Fear Of Missing Out” but rather…
FEAR OF MOVING ON

The time hasn’t come to “go back” to work, but the time has come to move on with life.

We’re getting closer to a solution that enables us to gather together safely.

We’re getting closer to a time where offices won’t be empty.

And that’s scaring some people!

So what’s to blame for this new FOMO – FOMO 2.0?
šŸ”¹ The same culprit that sabotages your change efforts at work.
šŸ”¹ The same culture that said “work from home will never work for us” prior to this pandemic.

The Three Deadly C’s:
šŸš« COMPARISON
šŸš« CONTROL
šŸš« COMPLACENCY

So if you’re feeling a pang of anxiety when approaching change, here are three strategies to try:
šŸ‘šŸ¼ Instead of comparing yourself to others, compare yourself to who you were yesterday. Strive to be better than THAT person.
šŸ‘šŸ¼ Instead of trying to control the situation, focus on how you can control your response. That’s ALWAYS within your control.
šŸ‘šŸ¼ Make peace with the fact that life is constant improvement. Biologists call it evolution. “Trying to maintain is a fool’s game”

Go be the change you want to see in the world my friends! šŸ˜

Disruption: The New World of Work!

We are in a brawl with few rules, where the fast, adaptive, and those moving quickly will remove the slow,Ā over-thinking, and complacent. In the past, change was sporatic, lasting for only a short time, and gradual.Ā  Now,Ā change is constant as business, technology, and society itself continue to evolve at anĀ unprecedented pace that will only accelerate. Talent, ideas, speed and distinction are keys to winning in the New World of Work.

Individuals, teams, and organizations that fail to develop a distinct ā€˜brandā€™ and separate themselves from the pack inĀ this New World of Work will find themselves vulnerable, uncomfortable, and at the mercy of other people, events, orĀ the competition. The waters of change are unnerving for many. But the fact is they will only become moreĀ turbulent. For organizations and employees who are unprepared, the future will be devastating.

Employers, customers and clients (external and internal) have an abundance of choices today. What would drawĀ someone to you? What makes you different? What are you doing to leverage these forces in order to grow, adapt,Ā innovate, and thrive in the future?

For individuals, say hello to the age of self-determination. The days of 25-35 years with one employer and a goldĀ watch retirement are long gone. The era of ā€˜entitlementā€™ is history.

Today it is about your ability to effectively answerĀ theseĀ  4 questions:
1. Who are you? What makes you distinctive in this ā€˜sea of sameness?ā€™
2. How are you dramatically unique or different?
3. How do you make a significant difference, or create an astonishing overt benefit?
4. What is/are your reason/s why anyone should believe in you? Convince me!

What will it take for a team or department to avoid the possibility of being ā€˜outsourcedā€™ or eliminated? StayingĀ competitive, streamlined, flexible, and innovative is paramount in the New World of Work. Teams and departments areĀ coming under intense scrutiny. Can the work be done faster, cheaper and better on the outside? Savvy leaders knowĀ they must adopt new strategies and innovate to stay ahead.

Please internalize this ā€“ Individuals, teams, departments and organizations are depreciating assets. What made usĀ successful in the past is not the ticket to the success in the future. You are a depreciating assetā€¦
AND, You must investā€¦
AND, You must have a renewal investment planā€¦
AND, That plan must be formalā€¦
AND, You must schedule routine personal, team and departmental
ā€˜Brand Youā€™ audits.
Create a CAUSE, not a business.
