Webinar: Career Conversations - Ladder or Lattice?

If we are to embrace and thrive in the rapidly evolving landscape of work, we need to be re-thinking how we approach careers in organisations.

“Brilliant, timely, original, well written and utterly terrifying.” Niall Ferguson

Those were the words we were drawn to on the front cover of Gratton and Scott’s latest book The 100 Year Life”.

If you haven’t read it, grab a copy.  It provides an engaging and thought-provoking analysis of how our working lives are changing, not 10 years ahead, now, in 2017.  Many of us have been brought up understanding the traditional three-stage approach of education, work, retire.  But as the authors brilliantly highlight, this well-established model is being shattered.  Life expectancy is rising, final-salary pensions are vanishing, and the jobs my children are likely to end up doing probably don’t yet exist.

If we are to embrace and thrive in the rapidly evolving landscape of work, we need to be re-thinking how we approach careers in organisations – not just in terms of career models, and continuous learning – but how we have career conversations.

Career conversations can often be complex and messy.  The rational desire for structure and certainty often becomes intertwined with dialogue around passion, fulfilment, meaning, and purpose.   The skill to navigate this complexity is becoming ever more important with the impact of longevity on our sense of self.
