The biggest ever loss to any nation today is ignoring untapped hidden talents of its citizenry.
By Naseem Javed
Are there some benefits in this global pandemic recovery? Observe how, during the last millennia, never ever before the global populace ended up inside one single test tube. The commonality of the pandemic problems, nation-by-nation, city-by-city, and person-by-person how simultaneously and harmoniously the sufferings spread out arousing questions, forcing new thinking on global focalism demanding new alternates for losing faith in institutions and their own governments and economic models. They are calling for “common good” and respectable “occupationalism” and demanding new narratives. National mobilization of entrepreneurialism on digital platforms of upskilling exporters and reskilling manufacturers on innovative excellence and global marketing will save economies. National upskilling of all key frontline teams in government departments and related agencies on global-age challenges of virtualization of economies will save national leaderships.
What will happen next when the global populace becomes “thinker-gatherers”? Observe the hyper-accelerated advancements of technologies around the world and deduce how, within this decade, it will easily eliminate all physical involvement of humans from daily “work.” The human body, physicality and muscularity, the hands, feet, pushing, lifting, moving, stuffing, or licking all taken over by technology and thus leaving humankind all alone, segregated, isolated as an advanced specimen of unique experiences and unusual sufferings no matter how fallible the outcome becomes but left only to “think.” Think and just think, and that is the new future. Let robotics and Tik Tok do the rest.
If the world hears the rumbling sounds, are the national leaderships listening to their deeper cries? Observe, how the global populace suddenly far more knowledgeable about what current political punditry capable of measuring and alternately prefers using dog-whistle rhetoric to score points on tribalism. If there are some 200 nations, some 10,000 cites, there are also some 100 national elections scheduled within the next 500 days… national leadership must demonstrate their literacy to read futurism. Identify their local teams with the right expertise to address national challenges, urgently respond with right answers, and develop clear narrative to address realities.
The centuries old 9-5 model morphing into a 24x7x365 virtually alive model. Banned, should be commuting and cubical-slavery as inhumane, while highlighting a new world of efficient-productivity and respectful occupationalism will avoid restless citizenry. Is now the time to get rid of HR as a fake abstract power of pushing and channeling human bodies in bureaucratic mazes rather uplifting to entrepreneurial adventures and global-age performances? Is this time to throw away mismatch-business-titles and find real experienced tactically trained coaches and experts to reorganize business models, where superior performances to compete on global stages become the basic platform of the enterprises? Is this the time to redefine business models and bring mega change? If not when, observe the crowds and rise of tribalism as lack of grassroots prosperity.
If the vaccinated world is a few years away, the normality of economies still decade away. Stop currency-printing presses, as without productivity nations start looking like dominos lined up for a fall. Now survival is not money but real performances on real value creation and not value-manipulations.
Rejuvenation of a nation only achieved with grassroots prosperity resulting in socio-economic-cultural progress, able to strive dreams to create harmony. No, this is not a Normal Rockwell’s canvas, this is an awakening reality; where hungry for honest work for honest living and starved for respectable occupation on principles of common good, screaming in silence is the global populace. Are the national leaderships ready to hear this low frequency calling.
Primarily, pandemic recovery also taught us new global-age mantra; “Constant learning, constant disruption, constant advancements, constant dialogues” All moving in simultaneous synchronization and with collaborative engagements for common good, all designed for all to grow together, hence, now new definitions urgently required;
Key Questions: Are cities and national regions ready for national mobilization of entrepreneurialism? Are national Chambers and associations in agreement on upskilling small medium enterprises? Is there a national agenda to quadruple innovative excellence and exportability? How skilled are local leaderships of agencies on such national-global deployments? How fast-track upskilling will add digital-mindedness and create quality exports centricity? How simultaneous synchronization uplifts upskill 1000 to 100,000 SME on a fast track basis? How these issues are not new funding hungry, they are execution starved, and so what is stopping? How a national umbrella created via Live Roundtable discussions and streamed to 100,000 stakeholders?
Stillness is death: How continuous disruption brings perpetual life to enterprises. How continuous optimization of self-discovery achieves new heights? How does continuous quality production open global doors on exportability?
Summary: Covidians are smarter as their sufferings have now influenced new global mindshare. The biggest ever loss to any nation today is ignoring untapped hidden talents of its citizenry, uplifting, upskilling and reskilling will save nations. This is an advanced intellectualism on human productivity, performances and creating real-value-creation, not to be confused with current techno-corrupt pamphlets based on cyber-crypto-economic ignoring human work over artificial intelligence and robotization. In response to such urgencies, Expothon Worldwide relentless in pursuit and authoritative in action is tabling a special “high-level-global-debate-series” via virtual events in coming months.
