In the Industrial Age, the assembly line was developed to get employees to just do one task, without ever having to think. In the 21st century, we have moved beyond that model. Today, in companies of any size, people are paid to think, innovate, and create. Brainpower is the determining factor, and any management team or company that doesn’t believe that will fail. When people are mentally engaged with their work, thinking about ways to make things better and how to help the business, then that is the most powerful situation for a business, because employees are volunteering every part of themselves, not just doing the minimum because that is what is required. Whatever you do, get people to be excited to be a part of it.

FranklinCovey’s Kory Kogon discusses this with Fran on Thursday’s episode of the Business Mentoring Show.
