Throughout the history of business, employees had to adapt to managers and managers had to adapt to organizations. In the future, this is reversed with managers and organizations adapting to employees. This means that in order to succeed and thrive, organizations must rethink and challenge everything they know about work. The demographics of employees are changing and so are employee expectations, values, attitudes, and styles of working. Conventional management models must be replaced with leadership approaches adapted to the future employee. Organizations must also rethink their traditional structure, how they empower employees, and what they need to do to remain competitive in a rapidly changing world.
This is an audiobook about how employees of the future will work, how managers will lead, and what organizations of the future will look like. The Future of Work will help you:
The book features uncommon examples and easy to understand concepts which will challenge and inspire you to work differently.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

I really enjoyed this book. I took the time to listen to this as I have been tasked with developing my own work profile wants and needs. I felt this book spoke to the type of career expectations I have, and it is great to find that there is a wider demographic then just myself looking for great options and flexibility in the workplace.
Awesome. A must read for business consultants, executives and anyone interested in the future of work.
"Repeatedly factually inaccurate and out of date"
This book is full of factual inaccuracies and the reader was really not great.
I don't expect so.
The narrator is really overzealous and I don't think it helps the book.
This is a good book to listen to regarding the future of where work is headed
As an educator, it is important that I know what is expected of the students I serve. This book gave me good insight into their futures. I will use what I have learned to help develop other educators about the differences between how we work and what might be changes that our students might have to face.
I would highly recommend this book to all those who want to take work to the next level!
This is for everyone who thinks they have a handle on their business - you do not - and this book will help!
