A fully revised and updated edition of the award-winning guide to staying relevant and competitive in the future of work.
The need for skills that defy disruption has never been so urgent, as traditional workplace models give way to confronting new rules of engagement. If you’re looking for job security, growth and acceleration in a radical, new workforce, then Future Fit is the place to start.
Award-winning author Andrea Clarke shares her experience, expertise and tactical advice on how to become truly Future Fit. “The future of work is here and it’s about talent – your talent. It’s about upgrading our human skills because they’re landing differently in a hybrid environment,” says Clarke. “These skills are powerful differentiators in a dynamic and demanding new workplace.”
Using her experience from a vibrant and varied career, Clarke explores the eight ‘real skills’ we need for the 2020s: Reputation Capital, Adaptability, Communication, Networking, Creativity, Problem-solving, Leadership and Learning.
A former Washington D.C. news reporter, Iraqi humanitarian aid worker and EdTech pioneer, Clarke founded FutureFitCo in 2012 – a business that trains emerging leaders to accelerate these core competencies. The Future Fit Digital Program, adapted from this book, is delivered globally to multi-national organisations.
