Thriving in a fast-changing world

In today's fast-changing world, companies increasingly need to be proactively resilient to be successful. They need to assemble teams quickly, draw on collective knowledge, find expertise, collect information in real time, and communicate strategic messages.

To build those capabilities, organisations need a culture that enables employees to become "gig mindsetters" - salaried employees who behave and think like freelancers.

Gig mindsetters

Gig mindsetters are continuous learners.

They manage themselves, take the initiative, focus more on skills and less on roles, use better processes, and are confident to question the status quo. They share what they learn, take ownership of their growth, and have the ability to influence people.

The learn, apply, share strategy

Large scale learning programmes often fail because they don't encourage people to take the initiative. Another approach is the learn, apply, share strategy.

People who want to continue learning answer a formal but simple document that lists six questions.

  • What will I learn?
  • How will I learn?
  • How will my company and I benefit from my investment?
  • When will I learn?
  • Where will I learn?
  • Who will help me make this a success, for my company and myself?

Creating a gig mindset learning culture

People want a sense of purpose. To establish whether your organisation has a gig mindset learning culture, consider the following questions:

  • Are your employees able to communicate directly with senior leaders?
  • Are they encouraged to challenge the status quo?
  • Are teams built by focusing on skills and knowledge?
  • Are teams encouraged to share their work before it is completed?
  • When an experimental initiative fails, is it considered a positive experience?
  • Are people given time for external networking?

Retaining gig mindsetters

Retaining gig mindsetters

If gig mindsetters continually encounter obstacles, they may look elsewhere for more suitable places to work.

Gig mindsetters may encounter difficulties at work because managers may think they are disrespectful or self-centred if they challenge the status quo. However, people with a gig mindset show loyalty to the organisation, not the processes. They are willing to improve things that will benefit the organisation.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
