We live in an amazing era of technology-driven transformation that’s redefining how we sell, market, communicate, collaborate, innovate, train, and educate—all in an amazingly short period of time. With that said, though, we don’t want to lose sight of the fact that the future is a human future. And when it comes to humans, it’s all about relationships at a deeper level than just knowing their name and trust. If you don’t have trust, you don’t have a relationship.
But trust isn’t something you give and receive freely. Trust is earned through universal values, such as honesty, integrity, and delivering on promises. These types of values are true in every country and every culture all over the world.
Today we’re more connected to others than ever before thanks to the mobile Internet being on our phones. In fact, right now well over 2.5 billion people are connected to the Internet. At any one time, 30% of the world’s population is going online. And over 70% of the phones sold last year were smart phones, meaning that people have television, radio, and Internet access in the palm of their hand. The true question is of course; while being connected technically have our social skills improved and how many people are we in relation with? And I’m not talking about the number of Facebook “friends”
Make no mistake: The human factor is more important for business success than ever before. For example, I know companies that have had breakthrough technology, yet they failed because they neglected the human factor both internally and externally. That’s why it’s a good idea to look into the Taylor Protocols, because they will help you find the internal drives of both your employees and yourself.
In Holland I’ve also seen companies using older technology, what we might call “legacy technology,” and they beat out their competitors because of their focus on the human factor. I know for a fact that this is also the case in much (if not all) of the Western World.
So how do you leverage the human factor, and is there a way to do so today better than ever before? The answer is yes! And if you’re in human resources or in charge of training employees, you are now in a position to transform your career by adding amazing new value to your organization because of the positive impact new technology can have on the human factor.

Earlier I mentioned that we’re transforming how we sell, market, communicate, collaborate, innovate, train, and educate over a short period of time. All those processes involve people. Without people, none of those things happen. If you, like I, believe that the human factor is indeed the key factor in doing business right, I once again invite you to explore the possibilities of the Taylor Protocols, which are described elsewhere on this site.
You can also raise the bar on the human factor in your organization. Remember, in times of rapid technological transformation, it’s the human factor that will win the race.
