Independent Professionals Roadmap to Success
For two years now we have talked about the #FutureofWorkforce with Yared Akalou and Michele Price. Yared discusses it from a User Experience perspective and Michele from a leadership role. Today we bring you Katy Tynan author of “Free Agent The Independent Professional’s Roadmap to Self-Employment Success.”
The full-time employee, the staple of the US workplace, is becoming an endangered species. We are on the brink of a seismic shift in the employer/employee relationship that will redefine the nature of jobs and careers.
Katy describes what’s driving this change and includes a pragmatic action plan for professionals who wish to survive the challenge of how to be successful. Available from Amazon in Paperback and Kindle Formats.

Future of Workforce
Leading Tomorrow’s Workforce
Disrupting Established Work Cultures
Technology has and continues to disrupt many aspects of our work and yet one thing remains constant, people want to feel like they matter in the workplace. And rightfully so, each and every person that shows up to a job matters. So what happens when leaders disrupt well-established work cultures to increase bottom line results? Everyone understands, falls in line with the changes, and continues work as normal. Well, not exactly.
Whether it’s a 5< startup launching a service or an established fortune 100 company, leaders are accountable for the overall health and well-being of employees at their company. When business decisions are made in a vacuum and don’t fully take into account the effect that these decisions will have on talent, the very foundation of an organization can crumble in an instant
I often ask this question when I engage people on the topic of future work, “what motivates you to show up to work every day?” Not surprisingly, most don’t mention the money. Of course, we all have financial responsibilities and salary matters, but the majority of the feedback I receive is the value placed on the people they work with and the work culture.
Join me on Breakthrough Radio as I kick off a series on leading tomorrow’s workforce and begin by sharing the cause/effect when leaders disrupt established work cultures.
I will share the perspective of leaders when making tough decisions to ensure their company can compete in today’s uncertain economy.
Highlighting the other side of the coin, I will discuss the effects on employees when business drivers supersede the needs of employees.
Every 3rd Monday your guest host, Yared Akalou, founder of Alcove (getalcove.com), a mobile workstation that is redefining how people work in open spaces delivers a breakthrough byte segment on the Future of Workforce.
