    @Max๐Ÿ J. Carter- you spoke my heart with this thoughtful buzz. I agree entirely with all what you have written. You awakened me to some actions that I do without realizing why I do them such as mentioning links to other buzzes. This is a great buzz and is worthy of sharing.

    #2 I agree with your 10 attributes - Creativity, Social Intelligence and Global Knowledge were identified by IBM as the 3 top 3 capabilities by 2020. These are different capabilities that require being with uncertainty, not knowing, seeing new patterns emerging in complexity. The old style Consultant, had known knowledge they shared with someone who didn't have access to that knowledge. The new Consultant is a co-creator and a collaborative problem solver who works with the present state and what emerges.

    #9 Irene, I agree, as well, that we are in the midst of a growing transition away from the historical model of long-term, full-time employment toward one of limited-term contractual employment. However, I think it a mistake to conflate the situation in respect of upper-level execs cast out of FT employment with that of middle and lower level people joining the ranks of unemployed. Highly paid top level execs often have the option of joining the ranks of business owners and entrepreneurs (not the same thing, BTW) whereas middle and lower level people will be seeking to reinvent themselves as consultants and contract workers. I submit that it is important to recognize and understand the differences and nuances. ( https://www.bebee.com/producer/@friedman-phil/tips-for-successful-consulting ) Thank you, Irene for expanding this important conversation. And thank you, Ron for initiating the discussion. Cheers!

    You touch on an important topic here, and in so doing will hopefully encourage further conversation. I am somewhat confused to your reference to now as 2015. Perhaps a typo? And I do not see how the "FTEs" of whom you speak are going to transition to being instantiatins of your recommended model, which really amounts to being entrepreneurs with top executive authority and responsibility, including the provision of what you call "angel investment".

    I personally believe that the major transition will be from FTE to limited term contract employee -- which is not the same as being a consultant. Thank you for opening an important conversation. Cheers!

    24/11/2016 #3 Harvey Lloyd
    I would say that the biggest change that has happened over the last fifty years is information float. From days or even months, information is now nearly instantaneous. This will pressure your "5th should". I would think that any leader seeking coaching, consulting or input from an outside source is probably wrestling with information overload. Your points give focus to an otherwise difficult process. I would say though that these points would work internally as leaders work through change management in their own organizations. Great insights, @Ron Goddard.

    Very interesting, Javier. I question the MAU statistic for LI, though

    According to Statista at https://www.statista.com/topics/951/linkedin/ , LinkedIn gets 106M unique visitors QUARTERLY not monthly. The monthly figure is closer to 30M. MAU would therefore be 7%
