Now more than ever our economy is one that is marked by extreme Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity (VUCA).  Not only is technology changing the world of work, but the pandemic has managed to decimate jobs and certain industries in a matter of months. What can we do to help inoculate our careers moving forward?

In the future of work, each one of us must become lifelong learners and adopt a growth mindset. This webinar will cover concrete strategies that individuals can employ to succeed in an environment where change is constant.

The following strategies will be outlined in detail:
