Success and the Future of Work:  What does it Mean?

Topic Overview: 

The Future of Work……we are all talking about it.  The discussions come from numerous directions:  demographic trends, technology changes, AI driven shifts, economic shifts, generational differences, DEI, and more.  In this conversation, we will explore the how Success is framed within the context of Future of Work.  Success is defined as “a favorable or desired outcome; the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.”  As training professionals, organizational consultants, organizational development specialists and change agents, we spend our days focused on helping individuals, groups and organizations maximize the opportunity for Success.  We will explore some of the perspectives on the “Future of Work,” the trends and projections and discuss what Success could mean.  The discussion will explore individual success and implications for organizational success.
