Bill Jensen wrote a wonderful book – Work 2.0 – the new contract.
Bill talks about the new contact for work being how to use life’s precious assets. The book is a call to attention to the human dimension of getting things done. Bill states: “it is no longer acceptable to say that there’s work and there’s life and it’s up to employees to balance the two. The very act of using someone’s time assigns some accountability to you, me, and everyone in every workplace. (p 1 & 2)”
The key question for any organization or leader is:
Do I waste any of my people’s talent, time, attention, ideas, knowledge, passion, energy, or social networks.
If you do…don’t.
