Digital transformation, disruptive technologies, change and agility are keywords that the business is currently dealing with. Does the “resource” of human beings necessarily have to change thanks to the rapidly developing technology?

Can we be rescued?

Although everything around us has become agile, changed and digitally transformed, the problems in the workplace have remained the same. Burnout, depression and negative stress are still on the rise.

In Japan, there is even a word for death by overwork: Karoshi. Can we be rescued? We are constantly evolving on a technical level and seemingly forget about the most essential thing: human beings.

Human or technology?

Is it all about sales, growth and returns? Or is the goal of making the time we work as exciting, creative and meaningful as possible? It is interesting that both can not be so separated from each other.

Because when people have one Sense see in their work, they are more motivated and are much more committed. This, of course, is clearly reflected in sales, growth and return. So we continue as before. Maybe we'll add some cool and hip technology gadgets, but basically nothing will change. Why should it be?

Life and work are inextricably linked

We often simply hide management areas that do not work in companies. We continue to do as we once learned and calm our consciences by the fact that everyone does it.

But there are other approaches as well. More and more people worry about the future, about life and work. Both are inseparably linked. And in both areas, the digital world is changing a lot. To shape this change is in our hands.

Keep the people in focus

Many people mistakenly believe that “only” technology changes through automation and digitalization. That the main requirement is to deal with these constant changes. But that is a fatal mistake.

The main requirement today is not to master the rapidly changing technology. The focus must not be on technology, but on people. That may sound banal, but it is an extremely demanding task. The danger is great that after years of arduous success you will “wake up” and look dissatisfied at what has been achieved so far. Or worse, end in burnout.

Digitization brings transparency

There are two reasons why companies are increasingly concerned about (working) life. First, someone who loves or at least likes his work will do a much better job and do more. Second, the mood in this company is talking around.

In the past, you could talk about the company, the difficult situation, the customers or the lack of leadership skills of the bosses at the regulars' table. Today, this word-of-mouth propaganda reaches a new dimension through online evaluation portals. A single very negative comment can cost valuable orders. Thanks to digitization, everything is extremely transparent. Sustainability, the handling of resources, employees and customers can no longer only be propagated, but must be practiced daily. Otherwise it will be exposed as a lie.

People need to realize the meaning

Whether we introduce process management, implement new project organization forms such as SCRUM or even just change the office space from single to open-plan offices - the affected people must recognize the purpose of the measures. If they do not know why they should change, the project is likely to hit the wall.

So it's about the human being. It's about understanding how we people tick, what we want and what's really important to us. And it's about changing patterns of thinking that have been with us for a lifetime. For that, we have to analyze and question why certain things are important to us today.

Call of duty

For the most part, we define ourselves and our self-esteem over our job. If we want to know who someone is, we usually first hear the job, the position, and maybe even the number of people you lead.

The fact that, according to the Gallup study, 70 percent of people are not enthusiastic about their job and do “service according to regulations” shows how much we are really worth. The question arises: Why do you “waste” 5/7 of your life. Why should a person who is worth a lot of himself do eight hours a day from Monday to Friday that is not really fun and makes him happy?

People want to experience meaning

How can people be motivated? The answer seems simple: By fulfilling the basic needs. Money is a factor - but by far not the most important thing.

People want to experience meaning in what they do every day. People want to be “useful” and valued for it. Digitization is exacerbating this fact. Where we used to be creative and self-determined, algorithms and processes are now taking the lead.

Time to rethink

Let's change to agile people into a New Work - or better into a New Life, but please with sense! The time to rethink is already ripe.

But it's not enough to be as cool as Google and get a table tennis table or a slide into the company. We need profound behavioral changes, as we think about work, about people and ourselves. Then man can use every new technology in a meaningful way
