There’s a New Breed of Workers Changing the World of Work

By now you've heard something about the new world of work, and probably have sensed my passion about the topic. But there is something you don't know...that will either strike fear in your heart, or put joy in your step.

What is powering the new world of work isn't the economy, or the disruptive technologies sending work into the cloud. No...those are just enablers. What is powering the new world of work is a new breed of worker who has turned talent into a marketplace, rather than a workplace.

This new worker is intrinsically motivated, rather than seeking motivation externally. This new worker puts passion for work, above rewards for work. This new worker knows they can command better pay, and won't buy into the old corporate system that used benefits, and regular pay checks as a drug that got workers trapped in doing jobs they didn't enjoy for people they didn't trust or even like.

That's what the new world of work is about: workers who shed the old system, and in their search for freedom and meaning, they changed the game by turning talent into a marketplace. 

In this new marketplace the best pay goes to the highest quality work, to the workers filled with passion and to skills that the market values. Think about it: in a marketplace, the MARKET sets the price, not the supplier. So, in the new world of work, your compensation is set by the market, not the employer. It's a totally new game!

This article from Inc. Magazine outlines the leadership characteristics of this new worker.In the new world of work, leadership is essential, but passion and internal drive are the fuel to success. Enjoy!

Those professionals who "take what they are given" will settle for less, while the professionals who "create what they want" will win the game.

The Power of “And” in a World Trapped by “Or”
We don’t have to be limited by “or.” If the way we view and think about life doesn’t create the results we want, then it’s time to think differently. It’s time to embrace “AND.”
