Abstract:

"The world, our economy, and technology have all made major leaps in the past decade-have you made The Leap along with them?Work is different for this new generation than it has been in the past. Long-term careers are on the way out, and "gigs"--Part-time, contract, or freelance work-are becoming more common. Whether you're in the midst of a career or just getting started, now is the time to prepare for changes headed your way. What does it look like to avoid anchors? To create multiple income streams? To brand yourself? These tasks are critical to new generations entering the workforce. Robert Dickie has served as a decorated Air Force Officer, the CEO of an international company, and as the leader of several non-profits. He now serves as president of Crown. With real world experience and advice from a host of industry leaders, Bob outlines seven proven strategies for operating in our ever-changing landscape that can be translated into a practical personal action plan to achieve results. This book is exactly what's needed to help a new generation of adults make the leap to work that lasts in this new economy"--
