No one likes to be managed, but everyone wants to be a manager – the evolution of management and its impact on organisations
We live in an age of disruption, with a breakdown in trust being the biggest disruptor. We no longer trust science, our leaders, politicians, the media, or our employers. We question our motives and ask whether our personal values align with those of an organisation before applying for a job. And we are willing to quit the organisation, team or manager if it no longer does. Management has dramatically changed since the late 1800s when Frederick Taylor first introduced the principles of scientific management. The current multi-generational workforce desire something different from its company leaders and they’re not scared to speak up and demand it. Join me on this exploratory journey on the evolution of management, the impact on organisations and changes needed in our company strategies, structures and processes to ensure we build solid, future-proof organisations.
