Summary

The economy has made major leaps in the past decade. Have you made the leap along with it?

Work is different for this new generation than it was in the past. Long-term careers are on the way out, and “gigs”—part-time, contract, or freelance work—are becoming more common. Whether you're in the midst of a career or just getting started, now is the time to prepare for changes headed your way.

President of Crown and former CEO of an international company, Robert Dickie has a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from. With these he outlines seven proven strategies for operating in our ever-changing landscape and helps you make an action plan to achieve results.

What does it look like to avoid anchors, create multiple income streams, and brand yourself? The Leap will help you navigate these and other critical tasks for having lasting work in a changing economy.
