Through the eyes of our future workers we can see the paradoxes they face, the choices they make and the troubles and anxieties they experience. Like theirs, our own future working lives will have dark and light aspects depending on our context and choices. However, these are not uniformly dark lives – working lives rarely are.

Work and home life can spill over in terms of energy and emotion. 6 Our work and our lives outside work are rarely hermetically sealed from each other

Work and home life can spill over in terms of energy and emotion. 6 Our work and our lives outside work are rarely hermetically sealed from each other. More often, there is a spillover between the two that can be an emotional spillover, or could be the spillover of networks and competencies. On occasions the spillover between the two is positive. Our family home can be a place where we feel relaxed, authentic and loved. These are the positive feelings and emotions with which we enter our working day and they create the emotional foundation that plays an important role in helping us deal with. The future of work is already here. For my mother Barbara’s grandchildren. the ‘regenerative generation’ –.

For my mother Barbara’s grandchildren. In the crafting of this book I have followed the same path my mother took as she fashioned the patchwork quilt. What I needed was a point of view about the future of work that was more thoughtful and expert than the rather vague and ill-formed views I held. I knew that these questions I was being asked about the future of work were crucial. Work is, and always has been, one of the most defining aspects of our lives. I have, over the years, kept many scraps of ideas and borrowed some from friends.

An unhysterical look at the future of employment.

We are now facing a revolution in the way we work. A substantial schism in the past which is so great that the work we do will change – possibly so that in two decades our working lives will have been so REWORKED that they are unrecognisable.

I read this book in one sitting which means I was gripped by the ideas and the ease of which they are presented. No doubt I will go back to this book often. Downloads very useful summaries. I loved the descriptors of the 5 forces shaping the future of the world of work and the 32 pieces of them to explore. The quilt metaphor used very well. The future stories about individuals in the year 2025 are brilliantly told. A central concept that we can craft our work future is very well contrasted with what the author calls our default future. I liked the use of the word capital in the sense of the three shifts. I expected more on how the industrial and technological revolutions have had a dehumanising affect however the book is full of great insights into humanness. This book is also full of many examples of the kind of work that will be highly valued in the future and is therefore a great resource for all ages.

We are in the middle of a time of incredible change. It is hard to imagine what the world will be like in 20 years time. There seem so many threats and it is unclear what individuals can do to future proof themselves.
In this excellent book Lynda Gratton covers the major changes likely to impact on the world of work and then suggests the responses that are most likely to lead to a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
What is particularly good about this book is
- it takes a global rather than US centric view
- it draws on a very broad range of literature and examples
- it is written in a conversational style - like sitting down with your smartest, best read friend and talking about the future.

An interesting read. As with all books dealing with futurology, Gratton's predictions have to be taken with a grain of salt - but then again, she's the first one to advise that. All in all, the reading of this book has truly helped me have a clearer understanding of the forces that are shaping our future right now. A must for any professional.

I bought this book and did not know what to expect from it, but for sure not an exact prediction. I found it tries to classify factors in some way that will help each of us to make a prediction. I liked the format and thought it was usefull.

Overall I agree with the trend, forces and shift that the author projected for the future and already see many happening or begin to happen. Worth reading again in 5 and 10 years to witness the change in reality.
And after reading this book you actually understand what is happening and are able to link the pieces together. Great for current professionals and parents alike to help them guide their offsprings into a bright future.
