Here’s a blog post from my friends at Catalyst last week. I thought it was worth passing on:
Gary Hamel wrote an article for the Wall Street Journal about how “Generation F” – the Facebook generation – will change expectations in the workplace.
Here’s his list of 12 characteristics of online life he believes will be applied to the work environment:
- All ideas compete on an equal footing.
- Contribution counts for more than credentials.
- Hierarchies are natural, not prescribed.
- Leaders serve rather than preside.
- Tasks are chosen, not assigned.
- Groups are self-defining and -organizing.
- Resources get attracted, not allocated.
- Power comes from sharing information, not hoarding it.
- Opinions compound and decisions are peer-reviewed.
- Users can veto most policy decisions.
- Intrinsic rewards matter most.
- Hackers are heroes.
I wonder if these will apply to the Church as well?
