Reinvent 4.0: Your Keys to Unlock Success and Thrive in Uncertainty
- About the Author
The future of work is full of uncertainty, ambiguity and anxiety.
In the 1960s, many companies on Standard & Poor’s (S&P) 500 remain on the list for about 60 years. During those days, the average lifespan was 50 years. Business cycles exceeded one’s lifespan, so lifelong employment in one organisation was very common. Today, the average lifespan of a company on S&P 500 is only 20 years. And the average life expectancy is 71 years in the world.
This means we will unlikely stay in one organisation in our lifetime. The global megatrends such as the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the ageing population, along with black swan events like the recent pandemic and Ukraine war will accelerate changes ahead.
We will face many uncertainties and inflection points in our life. To thrive and ride the waves of transformation, we need to constantly reinvent ourselves.
Reinvent 4.0 is peppered with stories drawn from the author’s more than 20 years of corporate experience, including over 250 clients she has coached, and interviews with thought leaders and futurists.
The ideas in this book will give readers a fresh set of lenses through which to perceive disruptions and be ready to seize opportunities in a new world of uncertainty.
