How to stay relevant and competitive in the future of work
“In a global world where ideas, fashion, technology and corporations move seamlessly from place to place it is logical that both the present and the future belongs to the skilled, to the agile and to the resilient… this is what Future Fit is all about.” Bernard Salt AM
According to author Andrea Clarke, founder of CareerCEO and creator of its Future of Work Program, we all need a new kind of job security. Around the world, the nature of work and business is on the move. Digital disruption, globalisation and the casualisation of the workforce is drastically re-shaping the way we live and how we do business.
Leading management consulting firms all agree that we can expect significant job disruption across all industries. But, they also agree that human skills will always be in demand. In fact, they won’t be just in demand, it’s widely acknowledged that it’s the ‘human’ skills that will enable us to not just survive the pending disruption but thrive in the age of accelerations.
In her fascinating new book, which starts with the author’s memories of flying into wartime Baghdad, you will learn how to acquire the following skills to become future fit in the workplace: Personal brand; Adaptability; Communication; Networking; Creativity; Problem-solving; Leadership; Lifelong learning.
The only job security we have is that which we create by exploring each of these human skills which will help us all lean towards change and become an asset to ourselves and the company we work for, instead of a liability.
