Linda touches on a number of great points wich we might be confronted with in the next years in our work as leaders as well as HR professionals. As these points would ask a different mindset from us, as well as a different set of solutions, we need to start thinking NOW about how to be prepared for that future. In my view this is therefore a book you would want to read sooner, rather than later. Though the future she portraits seems sometimes gloomy to me, this might only underline I am not gen Y or Z, who populate that future of work.
She has an easy writing style, and the storyline is very pursuasive. After hot spots, this book again provides a mental energykick and gets your mind in motion.
I would think a must read for leaders as well as HR professionals who care about being prepared for people in the world of tomorrow. She might be off with her view on the future, as all views on future have that issue. I see the true added value of this book in making you think about the options for the future and guide you through future scenario's to fuel further thoughts.
