Leslie H. Kaminoff, Author, THE GREAT MANAGEMENT RESET:  27 Ways To Be A Better Manager (Of Anything)

As managers, we have all spent endless hours coming up with possible solutions to motivate our staff.

They say good help is hard to find, and according to employers across the globe it’s only getting harder.

The consequence is that current 18 year olds have a more than 50% chance of living beyond 100. However, how we currently structure our career and life is still heavily based around a longevity of 70 years. This is creating a tension in the workplace that will be a growing corporate issue in the decades ahead. Dealing with this longevity, both in your own company and in your own career, will be increasingly important but can too easily be forgotten in the face of pressing short term concerns.
