How to future-proof your career
Tony Robbins and future of work expert Elatia Abate on how to find fulfillment in the face of disruption
Did you know that the average American will spend over 90,000 hours at work over the course of their lifetime – and 87% of Americans have no passion for the job they do? The statistics are very clear: We’re working our lives away, and the majority of us don’t even like what we do.
This time of year, it’s likely you may have thought about your career and what changes you’d like to make. Maybe you want to ask for a promotion, start your own business, or even change your career path entirely, and make the leap into doing something that’s more fulfilling to you.
No matter where you are in your career – if you’re established, or just getting started – and what goals you’ve set for yourself this year – there is one thing that remains true: Technology is changing the way that we work … and it’s changing fast.
There’s no doubt that technology has made our lives a lot easier in the workplace. For those of you that remember things like fax machines and dial up internet, you can probably appreciate this. But as the pace of innovation continues to accelerate, many people fear that technology will displace jobs, and the workers — who can’t compete with machines. On the other hand, many argue that it will actually create jobs, opportunities, and entire industries.
Regardless of what side of the coin you’re on – whether you think AI and automation will create, or destroy, it’s going to change the fundamental nature of our economy. The things that we’re going to do for work, how we build our careers, and how we even define what a career or job is, will shift dramatically. We need to be prepared, and make sure that we’re providing as much value in the marketplace as we can, in order to stay competitive.
In this episode, we’re exploring the future of work – what it means and how you can create a career that you love – in the wake of technological disruption. You’ll hear from Tony on how to stay competitive in an ever-changing marketplace, and also from Elatia Abate, an expert on the future of work, who helps people find fulfillment and freedom in their careers, while future-proofing their jobs.
