The future of work is about talent, not technology.
In 'Future Fit,' author Andrea Clarke says that if we want to outrun the algorithm to stay secure in the future of work, we need to upgrade our own capability in ways we may not have considered.
As artificial intelligence is adopted into the workplace and traditional employee arrangements transform, we’re heading into a far less structured era of work. For organisations, it means re-imagining talent models, re-skilling the workforce and re-defining business practices for a digital age. For individuals, it means the onus of responsibility for finding, securing and delivering work lies with us more than ever before.
While the fault-line is clear, so is the opportunity: those who take their 'human skills' to the next level will be powerfully differentiated in a dynamic and demanding new market.
Drawing on a fascinating international career spanning TV journalism, foreign aid, and corporation communication, Clarke's new book will equip you with the eight critical human skills we all need to invest in for a new working environment. From Reputation Capital, Communication, Adaptability, and Creativity to Networking, Leadership, Problem Solving and Continuous Learning, you'll also learn how to deploy these core #FutureFit skills in new and modern ways.
Perfect Reference Book
an excellent refresher and reference book to guide your mind in staying positive. Thank you Ms Andrea Clarke for this book. It is one big help for this modern and diverse world we are now having
Loved reading Future Fit. I’ve gained so much insight on how to grow my career. How to made the hard decisions and found confidence to use my voice. This book is a life changer. I really loved reading the stories from her time in a war zone to the boardroom show downs. Overcoming huge career challenges only to turn them into her successes. Very powerful. Awesome book!
Inspiring, surprising, uplifting and hugely valuable
Inspiring, surprising, uplifting: and a breath of fresh optimism to counter the continual media bombardment of “you’ll have multiple careers in the future … you’ll need to be agile if you don’t want to be left behind on the rubbish heap … it’ll be so tough for our kids … doom and gloom …” Andrea’s book takes a refreshingly positive look at the great opportunities the changed work environment of the future can have for all of us.
A great book for a whole breadth of people from those starting out in their career to CEOs, and probably even those in their final two years at High School.
Based solely on seeing Andrea present to over 150 people with a very engaging and interactive 45 minute session at a work conference, I decided to buy Andrea’s book a week later to as reading material for some business flights I had that month ... and so glad I did.
I found her book in Dymocks sitting alongside Stephen R. Covey's ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’, and I have to say it definitely DOES deserve to be right beside Mr Covey’s - and not just because that's the correct alphabetical placement, but because I believe her book is as valuable today as Stephen’s was when it came out.
For me, her book brings us hope about how we can take full control of how we will navigate our future at work, truly get to enjoy the journey along the way, and most likely thrive if we embrace the future world of work utilising the guidance she has created based on her broad experiences on assignments around the world, as well as her research and advice she’s had from great mentors along the way.
Andrea inspired all of us who heard her very inter-active presentation, and I’m sure her book will do the same for everyone that reads it as it flows in the same way that she speaks. (And ‘no’ I’m not on any commission for saying this!).
