Full Description

A guide for individuals and organizations navigating the complex and often ambiguous Future of Work

We stand at an inflection point where technology can be leveraged to unleash human potential, or it can pit humans against machines. Heather McGowan and Chris Shipley have dedicated the last 5 years to understanding how technical, business, and cultural shifts have brought us to this place in order to construct this comprehensive and approachable guide to the future of work.

Blending insights from interviews with hundreds of executives with insights on professional and cultural identity, The Adaptation Advantage explains the profound changes the world of work has undergone and posits the solution: create new systems that detach identity from work and connect it to purpose. This purpose, the authors suggest, will motivate learning, engagement, empowerment, and lead to new forms of identity throughout the workforce. Only then can we embrace a new approach to work that places learning and adaptability at its center.

Designed to be a comprehensive, yet quick, read with 75 graphic illustrations that translate complex information into actionable steps, The Adaptation Advantage will help leaders at all levels and across industry recognize that:

  • The Future of Work for both individuals and organizations is steeped in rapid learning, unlearning, and adaptation.
  • To successfully learn and adapt, we have to be willing to let go of both "the way we have always done it" and "who we think we are"
  • Leaders must become comfortable with vulnerability and ambiguity to become champions of human potential

With an insightful foreword by New York Times columnist and best-selling author Thomas L. Friedman, The Adaptation Advantage: Let Go, Learn Fast, and Thrive in the Future of Work is an important resource for all leaders looking to help people develop the resilient, adaptive identities necessary to flourish in the rapidly changing workplace.
