The Future of Work – TIME

Are you prepared? If you educate or lead young people, are telling them the truth? Are you well informed about the truth? The truth about work must becoming our common ground.

Time Magazine ran a descent series on the Future of Work in May 2009. This intro statement rings true, right?

Ten years ago, Facebook didn’t exist. Ten years before that, we didn’t have the Web. So who knows what jobs will be born a decade from now? Though unemployment is at a 25‑year high, work will eventually return. But it won’t look the same. No one is going to pay you just to show up. We will see a more flexible, more freelance, more collaborative and far less secure work world. It will be run by a generation with new values — and women will increasingly be at the controls.

I recommend spending some time in study of the facts, figures and stories reported here.

  1. The Way We’ll Work

  7. Women Will Rule Business
  8. It Will Pay to Save the Planet

You are responsible for what you know and how you lead others based on what you know. Get informed. Get engaged. Learn more.
