An average work life is 40 years. In the past couple of decades, many occupations have changed dramatically in nature and some have disappeared. The rate of change is increasing. When clients plan their futures, how do they know if they are choosing occupations with a future? In this time of rapid change, how can clients be prepared for the changes that will impact their lives?

No one can predict the future, but there are well known trends that clients need to understand, such as:

  • Routine tasks are being replaced by technology.
  • Demand continues to increase for artistic skills, human services skills, and technical experts who invent or control technology.
  • Precarious work, also called the Gig Economy, is growing. Some thrive in this environment, and many suffer.
  • Rewards for being the first to recognize opportunities are immense.

Spend 2 hours analyzing the ways work is changing, the implications of those changes, and how to help clients anticipate and position themselves to survive those changes.
