Preparing For The Future Of Work: Author Felicity Cowie On The Top Five Trends To Watch In The Future Of Work
An Interview with Phil La Duke
Fail fast and exit gracefully. No matter how well you prepare for a job you can’t know if it’s a fit until you start it. Every business is in a constant state of change. If it’s not for you, move on fast but until then give it your best shot. Remember that everybody you meet in any job is a potentially valuable connection who can reappear during your working life.
There have been major disruptions in recent years that promise to change the very nature of work. From the ongoing shifts caused by the COVID19 pandemic, the impacts caused by automation, and other possible disruptions to the status quo, many wonder what the future holds in terms of employment. For example, a report by the McKinsey Global Institute estimated that automation will eliminate 73 million jobs by 2030.
To address this open question, we reached out to successful leaders in business, government, and labor, as well as thought leaders about the future of work to glean their insights and predictions on the future of work and the workplace.
As a part of this interview series called “Preparing For The Future Of Work”, we had the pleasure to interview Felicity Cowie.
