Weekend #futureofwork #workhuman musings: Leaders who treat everything as cogs and cashflows are destroyers of value. They are operating from a 1950s playbook in the 21st century. (Thread)👇🏽
It used to be that leaders could get away with inhumanity. What has changed? ⚡️Instant digital #socialDarwinism.
When leaders say one thing and do another: 💢BAM💢, in 250 milliseconds and a text message later, everybody knows about it.
When leaders treat people without respect and dignity: 💢BAM💢, 5 minutes and a Glassdoor review later, everybody knows about it.
For decades, business thinkers have been talking about how “institutional knowledge” walks out he door when employees leave. TRANSLATION: the organization is now FAR less able to create value.
It used to be that it was really tough to find a new job. Why? Speed & cost. Now we’ve gone from 🐌newspaper job postings to ⚡️Indeed.com and 🐆LinkedIn. NEW JOB NEXT WEEK.
It also used to be hard for an employee to know her employer-marketplace value, similar to how it used to be hard to know how much people were paying for cars. No more. Emps KNOW their value.
When leaders focus on cogs and cashflows and ignore human desire, beliefs, compassion, relationships, and feelings, guess who walks out the door? Generally the MOST valuable employees... because they CAN.
A way the 1950s playbook leader drives people away even faster: faking it when it comes to culture and caring.
“People are our greatest asset!” (Proceeds to treat people like shit.) 🙄
What helps orgs? Order and competence 🔜 profit.

What hurts orgs? Chaos & lack of competence 🔜 loss.

Both result from the right/wrong people on the bus.
Boards will eventually realize all of the above. The 1950s playbook leader, the fake culture & caring leader: their days are numbered 🔚👆🏽
