The Modern Workforce – A Mediator’s Conversation with Business Guru Hank Moore
Hank Moore starts us off discussing a time honored business model for any size company (big or small) utilizing his Business Tree™ dynamic. The Business Tree™ has 7 major parts… 5 primary branches, a trunk (6) and the base (7):
- The business you’re in
- Running the business
- Business development
- Body of Knowledge
- The Big Picture
Based on his book “Big Picture of Business” series (books 1-2-3-4) (nominated for a Pulitzer Prize), he ensures all parts of the Business Tree™ must be intact (fully operational) for the sake of sustainability & success. If not, companies go under as we saw during COVID-19.
One of the challenges companies face are generational gaps with regard to communication. Succeeding generations may not look to their predecessors to learn their successes; they start with a new playbook oftentimes without possessing the emotional intelligence & knowledge of the original mold.
Hank shares new graduates entering the workforce post 2000, for example, are in his opinion in lack of communication skills to a degree unknown before.
Here is where mediators can shine in their servitude as ombudsmen when they mediate between employee & employer.
Moreover, entrepreneurial mediators can become proficient in the 7 parts of the Business Tree™ safeguarding their own successes.
His insight is expansive even pouring into the music industry highlighting the changing conditions of the current economy.
