New behaviors, ways of working and technologies continue to enter our workplace at a rapid pace. Those who are not prepared with the proper knowledge, skills and mindset will be left behind. Please join Jacob Morgan, principal and co-founder of Chess Media Group, Forbes.com contributor, and authority on the future of work and collaboration, as he shares his insights and strategies on how to navigate and succeed in this new collaborative workplace.
It is anticipated that by the year 2025, Millennials will make up 75% of the U.S. workforce. This group are the people who grew up using social and collaborative tools to communicate and engage with each other. Unfortunately our organizations still use legacy technologies, have employees working 9-5 in a cubicle, and we still get 150-200 emails a day! This way of work is dying and a new collaborative workplace is emerging. But what does this look like? What are the career, non-technical and leadership skills you’ll need to adapt to continue to succeed or climb the corporate ladder?
Register for this free live Webinar session, Tuesday, October 22, where Jacob will explore these topics and leave you with valuable takeaways you can practice in the workplace.
- Why you need basic project management skills and how to improve them
- The importance of leadership skills in today’s workplace
- How to flex to more flexible work environments
- How you manage your projects and process matters more than ever
- Keys to sharing data and information effectively
