      Future Fit

      How to stay relevant and competitive in the future of work

      by Andrea Clarke

      ANDREA CLARKE spent first the part of her working life as a TV news reporter for Al Jazeera English, the Pentagon Channel, the Seven Network and Reuters, covering major news events including the US Presidential Election, the Virginia Tech campus shooting and Hurricane Katrina. Until… she started to realise what the future of work would look like in her profession. She was no longer reading the newspapers herself or watching the 6pm news, so she knew she had to make a career change. When you read Future Fit, you will realise that Andrea Clarke is adaptable and resilient – in fact she possesses all of the eight strengths that she writes about in her book: Personal brand, Adaptability, Communication, Networking, Creativity, Problem-solving, Leadership and Lifelong learning. According to Andrea Clarke, founder of CareerCEO and creator of its Future of Work Program, we all need a new kind of job security. Around the world, the nature of work and business is on the move. Digital disruption, globalisation and the casualisation of the workforce is drastically re-shaping the way we live and how we do business. Leading management consulting firms agree that we can expect significant job disruption across all industries. But, they also agree that human skills will always be in demand. In fact, they won’t be just in demand, it’s widely acknowledged that it’s the ‘human’ skills that will enable us to not just survive the pending disruption but thrive in the age of accelerations. In her fascinating new book, which starts with the author’s memories of flying into wartime Baghdad, you will learn how to acquire the following skills to become future fit in the workplace: The only job security we have is that which we create by exploring each of these human skills which will help us all lean towards change and become an asset to ourselves and the company we work for, instead of a liability.
