Another astute take from Nilofer Merchant, this time on the future of work:
“Work is freed. This changes not only how we work at the broadest levels — and how we organize every single part of our organizations — but what we make, how we produce and distribute it, and how we market and sell it. Is that scary? For many, yes. But, for better or worse, social is giving us this freedom. The question now is what we do with it.”
I love that Nilofer acknowledges the inherent uncertainty and fear that exists around this. So few work futurists pay that any heed, and it is an important factor in how we will realize the potential of a free talent force.
