About the topic
If you look up the word “manager” in the dictionary you will find synonyms such as “slave-drive” and “zookeeper.” Managers used to sit at the very top of our organizations and they controlled all of the information, the rules, and the decision-making capabilities. Going forward, managers sit at the very bottom of a flatter pyramid and they push everyone else up. The goal of a manager should be to make people more successful then they are. Managers are now coaches and mentors instead of dictators and rulers. In this keynote talk Jacob explores how why the role of management is changing, how it’s changing, and what the future of management looks like. This talk is based off of Jacob’s 10 Principles of The Future Manager.
