Be Bold!!! Embrace the Chameleon in you.
We can all agree that the pandemic has radically shifted certain workforce trends. I am not talking about just working virtually. Some of us have begun to acquire skills we never dreamt we were capable of.
Prior to the pandemic, a major part of my life would be spent flexing my calendar so as not to miss out on any invitations (business or personal). When the lockdown started, I felt like a cheetah living in a tortoise shell.
As the weeks moved on, I nervously moved my business and social activities onto the virtual platforms. I was tapered into expressing my huge personality through a laptop screen. Then there was the nervous navigation into all other social media platforms, blogging and creating videos. I have never felt more regulated and grounded as a human being, as the new way of work became normal to me.
We are all so vastly different as human beings - every individual has had their own experiences. To give us more context, let us look at a new survey done by PwC. The sample consists of 32,500 workers in 19 countries.
In this survey, 60 % of people believe that automation is putting many jobs at risk; 48 % believe 'traditional employment won't be around in the future' and 39 % think it is likely that their job will be obsolete within 5 years. The research further states that 77 % are 'ready to learn new skills or completely re-train' and 74 % see training as a matter of personal responsibility.
We all wake up to a clean canvas every day. Every day is a new opportunity. Dare to use the colours and paint your story.
