The digital revolution will require more ability to have effective conversations than ever before.
Do your colleagues know how to have conversations across the generational cultures? Millennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025. Deloitte (2016) predicts they “won’t want to work at a place that is not cutting edge or doesn’t give them the chance to learn, grow and innovate.” Are you helping them do that through the conversations you are having?
What about the conversations with people who use or are in the growing ‘cloud based talent’ pool or with virtual workers? Conversations are key to ensuring success with this reliance on each other with ever growing distance.
Are you prepared to talk?
