Speaker: Marti Konstant

Topic : Career Agility: Future-proof your Career in a Time of Disruption and Change

The modern economy is shifting away from traditional steady employment patterns and accompanying worker mindsets, towards increasingly dynamic and often fleeting lifecycles. The project economy is taking center stage in a time of dramatic change. The rapid moves to online programming and digital work environments will forever change what it means to work and manage business.

 

Company longevity is in decline and the employer-employee relationship is evolving to meet the needs of the future workplace. In response, successful individuals are recalibrating their approaches to and expectations from the world of work. With the help of Researchscape International, Marti has researched, written a book, and authored numerous articles about the role of agility as a way to thrive and succeed in the future of work.
 
POV: Cultivating an agile mindset will help build confidence and personal leadership.


Participants will learn:

  • The definition of career agility and the principles of the career agility model
  • Career agility’s relevance to project management professionals and the project economy
  • Case studies of people who have applied career agility within their career path
  • 3 actionable techniques to stimulate career advancement and get noticed in an increasingly crowded business environment
