Today’s workers are caught between a rock and a hard place. What do they do when they see the world of work changing at a frightening pace due to artificial intelligence, robots and machines, yet the organizations where they currently work is doing very little to inform, educated or prepare workers for the future.
The answer is to take matters into your own hands. If the organization where you currently work is not upskilling its workforce for the future, then your job may be in jeopardy.
Don’t wait any longer. Like a child, get aggressive with educating yourself and conduct your own research. Find out what skill sets will be in high demand in the future, and what training classes are required. Get to those classes and courses.
Next, find companies and organizations that are hard at work preparing their workforces for the future, go to their websites and social media pages and find out the direction they are heading in.
If it matches your future workplace desires, then prepare yourself accordingly. The one word I would use to describe what your actions should be at this point it is -aggressive. Get aggressive and get aggressive now.
The workplace is changing faster than most workers realize. Be one of the smart ones- prepare yourself now. There is an old wise saying-
“Dig the well long before you thirst.”
The 4th Industrial revolution will have many job lost casualties, but you don’t have to be one of them.
