Over tien jaar is half Nederland niet meer geschikt voor zijn werk

We kunnen allemaal profiteren van de toenemende invloed van technologie op de arbeidsmarkt, zegt een denktank. Dat vergt wel flinke investeringen, ook van de werknemers zelf.

De technologische innovaties zorgen voor een hoop gemak in heel veel gebieden. Denktank “DenkWerk ziet automatisering als oplossing voor het échte probleem: de groeiende personeelstekorten in zorg, onderwijs, ICT en techniek. Het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek meldde een recordkrapte op de arbeidsmarkt. Als mensen stoppen met ‘oude’ banen die een robot of computer ook kan uitvoeren, zegt de denktank, kunnen ze aan de slag in beroepen waar ze harder nodig zijn.”

En dus wordt er nogal wat gevraagd van de werkgevers en werknemers, om ervoor te zorgen dat de mensen wel gewoon aan het werk kunnen. Eventueel in een nieuwe functie of een nieuwe omgeving. En dat vereist omscholing en continue leren of verbeteren van vaardigheden. Een nieuwe set aan overtuigingen gericht op de toekomst en jouw rol daarin. “Bedrijven moeten hun werknemers inzicht geven: wat moet je in de toekomst allemaal kunnen? En dan kun je samen kijken hoe je dat kunt ontwikkelen, in een cursus of on the job.” aldus een lid van de Denktank.

Welke mogelijkheden biedt jij jouw werknemers? Ben jij een goede leider op dit vlak? Of, als je een werknemer bent, welke mogelijkheden heb je? Wat staat er in de weg om écht een paar stappen te zetten om klaar te zijn voor de toekomst? Laten we daar samen eens over praten.

Night Owls, These Neuroscientists Are Worried About Your Health

Entrepreneurs, sales people, beware!

It’s common among entrepreneurs and successful sales people. Wake up early, work all day long, have some times allotted to the family, and after dinner, do some more work. Late to bed, early to rise, with not enough sleep.

Everybody is different, and we think that makes the world a more interesting place. However, some habits have a detrimental effect on your health, your productivity, and thus your success.

There are some neurological issues that come along with having a night owl sleeping rhythm. Luckily, the health issues that researches see with night owls can be changed – if the habits are gradually changed.

Are you a night owl? Or are you a morning person? And how do you see it affects your productivity and success? Let us know!

Use these 5 sales tactics to overcome your fear of rejection

Salespeople are used to hearing “no.” These tactics help them get past that and work toward that yes.

What can you do to turn ‘no’ into ‘yes’ and feel confident in doing so? Which subconscious beliefs are limiting you? And which are helping you? Sales is rejection-heavy, so if you want to be successful in sales, you may have to adapt your tactics. Sales training (skills) could help, but the real intervention on the level of beliefs is much more powerful and effective.

“We’re all in the business of persuading people to do things–sometimes things they don’t necessarily want to do. Is your coworker really happy about picking up the slack while you’re on vacation? Is your sister genuinely okay with you borrowing her car for the weekend?”

The tactics that Jeb Blount states are the following:

  1. Train for rejection like soldiers prepare for battle
  2. Visualize the outcome you want, not the one you don’t want
  3. Try ‘murder-boarding’ before you ask
  4. Learn how to shut up and listen
  5. Instead of an “all-or-nothing” question, ask for a micro-commitment.

All helpful tactics. Let us know how you’ve used these!

Three Tips From A Neuroscientist On How To Be The Most Productive Multitasker

Neuroscientist Adam Gazzaley says the human mind isn’t built for multitasking–but we do it anyway.

When we’re working consciously, we cannot multitask. It’s that simple – our brains can’t handle that. If we’re unconscious, about 93% of the time, we can multitask! But do we want to?

Gazzaley says: Human brains aren’t built to handle constant multitasking (on tech devices), and the constant task-switching of modern work life has negative effects.

Here are a few of Gazzaley’s best pieces of advice.

  1. Know your limits.
  2. Take frequent breaks.
  3. Set expectations.

Neuroot of doorzetter? Deze dna-test zegt iets over je karakter

Ben je impulsief of geduldig, een controlfreak of neuroot? Een dna-test kan aantonen voor welke karaktereigenschappen je aanleg hebt.

Hoeveel van jouw karakter is te herleiden vanuit het DNA? Daar kun je nu achter komen, op basis van een dna-kit van Onderzoeksinstituur Omnigen.

“Vanaf 14 februari kan iedereen zijn of haar dna laten analyseren op twaalf persoonlijkheidskenmerken. Je krijgt thuis tegen betaling een dna-kit en stuurt wangslijm terug. Onderzoeksinstituut Omnigen analyseert het dna en maakt vervolgens een persoonlijk rapport.”

“De mens is voor 99,9 procent genetisch gelijk. Omnigen kijkt alleen naar de unieke karaktereigenschappen die in 0,1 procent van het dna opgeslagen liggen. Daaruit worden genetische varianten gefilterd, waar in de wetenschap een verband wordt gelegd met bepaalde eigenschappen.”

“Je kunt op basis van alleen genetische varianten niet zeggen hoe iemand is’’, zegt directeur Berry Kriesels van Omnigen. ,,Dat zullen we nooit beweren. Het is een indicatie of je voor een bepaalde eigenschap verhoogde aanleg hebt. Persoonlijkheidskenmerken zijn ook afhankelijk van de omgeving.’’

Competitive advantage with a human dimension: From lifelong learning to lifelong employability

Organizations should embrace “lifelong employability”

New technology improves the various in which people are trained. AI is an essential part of the future of the workplace, and the people in it. However, “few organizations or individuals are prepared for such a transition. Already, there’s a significant gap, brought on by digitization and advanced data analytics, between the skills people have and the skills companies need.”

How are you setting your people up for success? Not just now, but in the future? How people deal with changing environments will be the most fundamental skill in the future. That may differ from one organization to another, but every company will be affected by the technological innovations that are already here, and by those that are still coming.

If you want your people to view “change” differently, something has to shift in their mindsets. In their belief systems. In the way they approach ‘work’. How they interact with customers. How they view themselves. And that’s not necessarily easy, but done the right way, it will be effective. It requires an intervention on the level of subconscious beliefs.

Curious to learn more? Let’s get in touch, and we’ll show you how it works.

Setting the Record Straight on Switching Jobs

What irrelevant beliefs do we have about the job market?

You’ll hear many platitudes about the job market, switching jobs, and switching from industries. What are some of those platitudes and beliefs, and what is actually the truth today? Harvard Business Review researched it, and came up with 5 sentiments that are not necessarily true.

One of those 5 is “You should always be looking for your next job.” How do you see that?

“You want to be happy, not constantly searching, says Fernández-Aráoz. “Ideally, you should never be looking for your next job, simply because you love what you do.” He points to research Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi has done on the state of “flow,” describing it as “a neurological condition of our brain in which we achieve maximum productivity while our brain consumes very little energy. We are fully immersed in what we do, fully absorbed, even losing a sense of time, and we’re able to function at our best.” When you have found this in a job, looking for your next one is unnecessary.”
