Business - Dealing with the Future

Business, more than any other occupation, is a continual dealing with the future; it is a continual calculation, an instinctive exercise in foresight.

Henry R. Luce

How true that saying is. Our survival depends on how we handle the future. Unfortunately many business people and politicians ignore this valuable lesson. We only have to look at the end result of the MBA explosion in the 1980's to realise this. The living out of a short term strategy and maximisation of short term profit led directly to the Great Financial Crisis that hit us in the late 2010's and is still with us today.

Talent Acquisition and Retention

Have you heard the Human Resources mantra, "Recruit and retain"?

It is a cornerstone of talent acquisition and development. Get the best people possible and keep them. A number of recent studies by McKinsey, The EIA and PMI have identified the key need for agile and talented staff to meet the challenges of the global marketplace in a rapidly changing environment. In the past businesses looked for long term and steady strategies to build their businesses. This is no longer good enough.

If you stand still, you will stagnate, innovation and agility are the new prerequisites for top performance.

There is a challenge today around the the 'recruit and retain' ideology. Many of the brightest and best do not want career security in one company. They want skills portability and a number of jobs in different companies, often globally, and their focus is Me Inc. not Your Company Inc.

I recently heard a great strategy to recruit and retain that took account of Gen Y mobility. Many companies are letting talented people go with their best wishes and an open ended offer to come back when they feel the time is right. By all accounts this is working well for many big consultancies and global companies.

Another option is to give talented staff a slice of the action, whether via share ownership or profit sharing. This works well for some people but not for others.

I think one thing is clear, and that is that market dominance will change quickly as talented people move around to maiximise their personal gain. Companies will need strategic human resource management in place to meet this threat.

Start Small and Persist

Today on the Internet there is no shortage of people who will, supposedly, tell you how to make great profits, with no effort. My advice is to ignore them.

I suggest to people to join a great little program where you start off making a few cents a day and can grow to make a decent amount of dollars per day. The hardest thing about making a thousand dollars on the Net, is making the first dollar. The program allows you to make cash from clicking links, filling out offers and doing tasks. Not glamorous, maybe even a little bit boring, but I make money from spending less than 10 minutes a day on the site.

Over time I have got hundreds of others into this program and they are the source of the dollars compared to the cents I make by myself.

I can always tell who the success stories will be. They have two characteristics:

1. They take action, join up and make those first few cents on day one and then consistently earn daily afterwards

2. They sell on to others consistently.

So what is the program?

It is called Clixsense.
