Praise for the adaptation advantage "An indispensable guide to navigate this new era in the workplace." -Thomas L. Friedman, The New York Times "The Adaptation Advantage is a masterclass in how individuals and organizations can and must develop the capacity to change fast and learn faster. Whether you were born digital or born analog, this book is your indispensable resource for thriving in a world that is transforming as you read this." -Jim Kouzes, coauthor of The Leadership Challenge Learn to thrive in the Future of Work What do you do? That social ice breaker imprisons us in the past. In a fast-changing world, we have to look past our work-based identity, move beyond the comfort of our current knowledge and skills, and prepare ourselves and the organizations we lead to adapt continuously to a rapidly changing future of work. Heather E. McGowan and Chris Shipley share three core beliefs. First, success in the future of work centers on our ability to learn, unlearn, and adapt. Second, to succeed, we need to let go of "the way we've always done it" and-more importantly-our professional identities. Third, leaders must get comfortable with failure, not knowing, ambiguity, and vulnerability to create the requisite psychological safety to lead our teams. Economic and social shifts are unavoidable. With the lessons found in The Adaptation Advantage, you'll learn to ride these waves to a more successful and fulfilling future of your work.
