Summary Adapt you career to the shifting paradigm of work, employment and success The word "career" doesn't mean what it used to. People entering the workforce today will have an estimated 17 employers and five careers in their lifetimes -- and already many existing roles are being automated away, with many more to follow. No profession, industry or geography is immune, and employees need to change their idea of what it means to be employed. The rise of freelancing and the gig economy means flexibility and independence, but also less security -- with trends showing it is the way of the future. You cannot future-proof your job, but you can future-proof your career. Career Leap shows you what you need to know, how you need to change and how you can prepare for the inevitable tides of change. This book sheds light on the choices you make, and the steps you can take to reignite, reshape and liberate your career. You'll develop the confidence you need to take decisive action, sharpen your skills and become the agile, adaptive professional we will all need to be. The 10-step Career Reinvention Cycle helps you assess the status quo and determine where you need to go, and then gives you a solid framework for making a move when the time is right. Future-proof your career with the new laws for success Undertake a health check of your career and make deliberate career choices Design, build, and execute your influence and career strategy Be equipped to take control and leap ahead with your career. No matter your role, it is imperative that you make every day in your career count. Make the critical decisions, take clear actions and, above all, stay ahead of the pack. Career Leap gives you the insight, confidence and knowledge you need to move up as you leap forward.
