Generation mute... no talking aloud.

That's the title of a short video you can watch on BBC Ideas. “I honestly can't remember the last time I made a phone call”, this is how the video starts. And, at the end, Prof. Sophie Scott says “that's a rolling pattern of change".

I suppose I should agree when she says that young people are allowed to say “We're just not doing it like you. This is how we communicate and we are not the same as you”, but I'm not very comfortable in hearing that employers have now to teach people how to answer the phone.

“In a place of work, voice is king”, says David Freedman. Ok, ok, he's the CEO of a call center and we're gearing toward more and more remote work. But If you're not comfortable with a phone call, will you be when you'll have to talk in person? No easy question, I suppose, since 49% of teenagers admit they text or instant message someone when they're in the same room.

La collaborazione è il nuovo vantaggio competitivo.

Verissimo!

Regola n.9 inclusa nell'articolo “If You Want To Innovate, Learn These 9 Rules”.
Articolo piuttosto vecchiotto — febbraio 2016 — ma l'ho scoperto solo oggi leggendo NeU Nuovo e Utile (http://nuovoeutile.it/).

#collaborazione #vantaggio #competitivo
Collaboration is the new competitive advantage.

So true!

Rules #9, from “If You Want To Innovate, Learn These 9 Rules” by Forbes (https://www.forbes.com/sites/gregsatell/2016/02/28/if-you-want-to-innovate-learn-these-9-rules/). Old article I've just found today thanks to Neu Nuovo e Utile (http://nuovoeutile.it/).
