Here are the key takeaways from this fast paced, engaging discussion!

  1. Find Your Unchanging Core: Jason Feifer emphasized the importance of building for tomorrow by finding your unchanging core in an ever-changing environment. Thriving in the future of work means adapting to changing needs while staying true to your purpose.
  2. Making a Shift: Feifer shared the story of Lena, a business owner who adapted her operations during the pandemic, leading to increased sales and customer satisfaction. Recognizing better ways of doing things, even before a crisis, is essential for future success.
  3. Embracing Change: The pandemic has forced people and businesses to innovate and adapt. It's crucial to understand the four stages of change - panic, adaptation, new normal, and realizing you wouldn't go back. Adapting to change is the most important skill for success.
  4. Building For Tomorrow: Feifer's book, "Build for Tomorrow," encourages readers to focus on purpose and understanding how to continue being relevant rather than building for yesterday. The key is to seek feedback for improvement and to consider the future's unknown unknowns.
  5. Seeking Feedback: Both hosts and Jason Feifer agreed on the value of seeking input for improvement. Understanding what is not known and embracing feedback are essential for thriving in the future of work, and for personal and professional growth.
