The future of work is not really in the future. It’s now.
And with the accelerated pace of change, leaders face tough new challenges.
But the future of work is not a problem to solve. It’s an opportunity to reimagine.
Now is the time for CEOs to reframe the questions they’re asking–to influence how people are even thinking about the questions.
In this episode, Gayle Lantz speaks with Jeff Schwartz, author of WORK DISRUPTED, about reframing the future of work.
