Many people early in their careers can be heard asking, “What’s my career path?” While this is a common question, it is the wrong question to ask. It implies a clearly defined route with pre-determined steps often moving in a straight line. Our fast-moving, ever-changing world is too unstable and unpredictable for career paths to be this clear. We need a new way of thinking about careers that fits the modern world.
In this discussion, Beth will share a framework for thinking about Career Curves and then will engage in a discussion with Arnnon that brings the concept to life. There will be time for questions and discussion with the group, so plan to join in. You’ll leave thinking differently about actions you can take to own and manage the curves in your own career.
