Foreword by Bernard Salt.
In this second, fully revised and updated edition, career and leadership expert Andrea Clarke looks forward to the skills and attributes that will drive success in the post-COVID workforce.
COVID-19 has drastically affected the way we work. It has made flexible working arrangements the new normal, it has brought into the spotlight the shortcomings of the casualisation of the workforce and made employers and employees question the skills and attributes best suited for success.
But some things haven't changed. According to Andrea Clarke, author and creator of the Future of Work Program:
"Talent is just as important as technology, and we all need to master eight specific human skills, which will help us lean towards change and become an asset to ourselves and the company we work for, instead of a liability."
The book explores in detail the eight skills - Personal brand, Adaptability, Communication, Networking, Creativity, Leadership, Problem-solving, Lifelong learning - necessary to remain future fit in our post-pandemic world.
