Today’s Leadership Minute was written by: Sandra Harbrecht, President and CEO, Paul Werth Associates

As we wind down an eventful 2016, we offer you a jump on 2017 with some bold predictions.

To see how we fared with last year’s predictions, please click here. http://www.paulwerth.com/2016/12/19/2016-fearless-forecast-review/utm_source=thoughtleadership&utm_medium=email&utm_content=2016forecastreview&utm_campaign=2017fearlessforecastDec2016

Famous people will phone it in instead. As the Democratic National Committee can tell you, there’s no such thing as a private email … anymore. Celebrities, high-profile companies and all politicians will wise up in 2017 and share sensitive information only in conversation. As for the rest of us, we can aspire to be important enough to be worth an invasion of our privacy from WikiLeaks.

Think Different: Alphabet will overtake Apple. With its sleek products and fully integrated interfaces, Apple has earned the title of world’s most valuable company. However in 2017, ten years after announcing the first iPhone, Apple will be forced to watch another take over the market cap throne. As Apple’s grip on the mobile product market weakens, Google’s bet (via Alphabet) on information software will pay off … in the billions. In today’s increasingly convoluted digital world, access to consumer information, intent and whereabouts will be the new must-have product.

Hip-hop will get political again. A quarter century ago, Public Enemy was the most dominant force in rap music, blending African-American consciousness, radical politics and a chaotic wall of sound. Mainstream hip-hop has continued to evolve in the years since, thanks to a succession of talented innovators from Tupac Shakur to Nicki Minaj. But other than an issue-oriented song here or there, the genre has remained largely apolitical. Expect that to change in 2017, as the national mood is ripe for socially conscious hip-hop to reemerge.

FDOTUS becomes the new acronym to know. From an unconventional campaign to an unprecedented election, the unexpected should remain the political norm in 2017. That line of thinking opens the door for Ivanka Trump, the president-elect’s 35-year-old daughter, to play a significant role as first daughter, regardless of whether the role is official, advisory or merely symbolic. In fact, don’t be surprised if a trio of first kids (Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric), all of whom have held key roles in their father’s organization, have a more significant role to play in a Trump presidency than the First Lady.

Reality TV will jump the shark. Original programming will make a comeback as Americans finally decide they’ve had their fill of reality.

The Indians will win the World Series … in 2056. The Cubs had to wait 108 years between championships, so it’s reasonable to expect the Indians, who last won it all in 1948, will do the same. But it will be a great story when it happens.

Our special thanks to David P. Blom, President and CEO of OhioHealth for his presentation at our November Leadership Hour titled: Hands, Head, Hearts.

David describes what Hands, Head, Hearts means to leadership.

Hands – Do you have the right people to do the job – and do you develop them to make them better leaders?

Head – How do we engage people and what’s important? How do you get alignment in an organization?

Many organizations get Hands and Head but lack in getting their employees Hearts.

Hearts – Having people’s hearts is what transforms an organization. You need to instill loyalty, passion, appreciation – it’s the emotional side of leadership.

This week we will discuss Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and how they apply to employee engagement.1 

The five hierarchy of needs include:

  1. Survival
  2. Safety
  3. Belonging
  4. Importance
  5. Self Actuation

Today’s topic is Self Actualization. These employees inspire others to do their best while contributing exceptional sustained discretionary effort. We would call these employees Highly Engaged.

These employees feel ownership in their jobs. Their values, goals and results align with the organization. When talking about their jobs and those they work with, they use the word ‘We’.
