Thriving in Never Normal is key to the future of work.
Business futurist and author Greg Verdino, says that we must accept and embrace a never normal mindset.
In his new book Never Normal: Uncommon Ideas for Leaders Who Don’t Settle for the Status Quo, Greg describes how the answer to constant disruption at work is not technology but rather agile and resilient people.
“Leaders need to become more comfortable with how to manage [people] remotely, and, I think, [have always had] this problem in that they hire adults and treat them like children.”
Describing the Never Normal paradigm shift, Greg says of the future of work:
“This is what work looks like now, and, I don’t think we are going to go back. You can’t shove it back into a box.”
Greg says that pandemic unleashed dramatic forces that upset our traditional ways of working. Therefore, thriving in never normal is key to enduring success.
