A faster-paced world doesn't mean we run faster to keep up with it. In fact, that's a recipe for burnout and poor decisions. To thrive, slow down to a sustainable pace, calm down, and show up fully.

2. Foster trust.

Trusted relationships are the single most important asset when change hits. Cultivating trustworthiness across your organization and community is one of the most valuable things you can do in times of uncertainty.

3. Strategically strengthen your portfolio.

The future of work is neither linear nor predictable. Start seeing your career as a portfolio to curate rather than a singular path to pursue. Doing so can help you find professional success and meaning in ways you never imagined.
