"Converting The Lazy Worker"
Is it possible?
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything - Bernard Shaw. This formed part of Monewa's TEDx talk at the Nasrec expo center on 2 October 2021.
Passion and purpose change all the time. This is a key concept we as leaders need to embrace and not ridicule.
Monewa suggests 5 top questions to ask when converting your inner lazy worker self:
1. Do you accelerate learning in the workplace?
2. Talent. Do you treat Talent as scarcer than capital?
3. Do you promote a culture of merit and accountability?
4. Ecosytem approach - Do you collaborate?
5. What is your stance on purpose?
