The world of work is no longer predictable.
As it becomes increasingly rare to have a stable career in any field, we're left with patchwork resumes and piecemeal lists of accomplishments.
More and more of us are blending big company jobs, startup gigs, freelance work, and volunteer side projects. We take chances to expand our knowledge, capabilities, and experience.
But how do we make sense of our diverse experiences - and how do we explain it?
Pam Slim, author of BODY OF WORK: Finding the Thread That Ties Your Story Together and Escape from Cubicle Nation, shares with us how to put the pieces together.
"What is the body of work that I want to create throughout the course of my life that solves the problems I care about, gives me great personal satisfaction, contributes meaning, utility and beauty to the world and delivers the life I want to live on a day to day basis?"
Pam shares with us personal stories that help us examine how we define our careers - and
ultimately how we define our lives - and also helps us discover and harness our own body of work, by challenging us to:
* Define Your Roots: Make sure your work aligns with your values
* Name Your Ingredients: Find hidden talent and leverage from all your life experiences that will make you uniquely positioned in the market
* Choose Your Work Mode: Mitigate the risk of losing your job or business by ensuring your work is valued across multiple channels and environments
* Surf the Fear: Learn how to navigate the fear and uncertainty that is inherent in the new world of work.
Join Julie Ann and Pam to learn how to find the connections among your diverse accomplishments, sell your story, and continually reinvent and relaunch your own body of work.
