Toilet Sheet Report: 1
One-sheet reports on the sheety side of work, leadership, and the
much-needed flushes and fixes.
1. Disrupt, Hack, and Reimagine “Engagement”
That term/idea was coined by consultants and senior execs to engage the workforce in corporate-centered goals and plans. Almost no workforce metrics are focused on whether or not companies are vehicles for people to achieve their dreams, goals, and ability to make a difference in the world. (Which, in the Gig Economy, is how the workforce sees companies.)
2. Accept That All Work Experiences
Have Been Consumerized
100% of the workforce are consumers. Climbing toward 100% of those consumers have experienced some form of intense personalization, connections, joy, passion or achievement though their phone, tablet, gaming, entertainment, education, shopping or community experiences — impacting their expectations, beliefs about how everything should be structured. The standard for evaluating any work experience is no longer work… It’s life.

Bill’s latest book, Future Strong, is about the five deeply personal choices each of us must make to be ready for all the disruptive tomorrows heading our way.
