A program called The New Normal was originally created in 2010 to address the massive changes as a result of the recession that started in 2008. In addition, there was the introduction and mainstream use of social media personally and professionally and Millennials were entering the workforce. It became one of the signature programs for conferences and in organizations for leading and managing change. Over time, it was re-named Living the New Normal. About 50 revisions and almost 10 years later, nothing seems normal these days.
So I am retiring “Living the New Normal.”
Welcome: Navigating the New Reality
Now, more than ever, leaders need to stay grounded, proactive and adaptable.
If it feels like you’re navigating uncharted waters, you’re not alone. Here are just a few of the challenges leaders face today:
- The pressure of keeping up with technology
- Use of social media to communicate with customers and employees
- New and changing regulations and legislation that impact business operations and employee recruitment and retention
- Generational divide: Millennials (those born after 1980) will represent over 50% of the workforce by 2020; Gen Z (those born after 2000 are entering the workplace now; Boomers are retiring
- Matrix management with cross-functional and virtual teams
- Accountability: Having people who do what they’re supposed to do, on-time and accurately
- Teams collaborating and communicating effectively and with respect
- Increasing uncertainty and fear about the future.
