The start of a new decade is quite the year to predict for. It is hard to narrow down.
This year I’m focusing on these three:
I’m predicting that 2020 will be the year that successful organizations & professionals see gratitude as a cultural focus. Not only is gratitude consistently next to connection in happiness studies, it is also showing up in studies of business success. It wouldn’t surprise me if it impacted health & longevity directly too and was fully at the intersection with connection. Gratitude with customers, clients & network is a way to selfishly have better (& more fruitful) days. The irony of how self-serving the act is can’t be lost on many!?
Learning is becoming a root to job satisfaction. Opportunities with learning & the ability to action on the job are impactful. The chance to make a difference & advance your career & mindset is one to seek.
Story-telling is an incredible tool for connection. It gets the message across. It makes the person or topic relatable. It advances learning. The use of story-telling over visuals could be upon us. The battle is the Twitter universe & the extreme conciseness & how they will impede the art of the story. Better use of stories will become a bigger component of business language including writing, video, meetings & other times of communication.
