LinkedIn 2019 talent trends: Soft skills, transparency and trust


This week LinkedIn released its 2019 Global Talent Trends research, a study that summarizes job and hiring data across millions of people, and the results are quite interesting. For this study 5,165 talent and managers responded, a big sample.

In an era when automation, AI, and technology has become more pervasive, important (and frightening) than ever, the big issue companies face is about people: how we find and develop soft skills, how we create fairness and transparency, and how we make the workplace more flexible, humane, and honest.

Become a great delegator: Ask the right questions when handing off work

Delegation goes wrong most often because either the manager gets caught in a pattern of micromanagement, or they make the mistake of thinking that delegation is all about letting go, resulting in a pattern of under management. The reality is that effective delegation lies somewhere in the middle of these two extremes: more hands-on and intense than the majority of managers realize, yet not so hands-on and intense as to prevent the manager from allowing the employee to take ownership of the task.
