Jobs are changing, technology is accelerating, and we must adapt with new skills if we want to keep up. But what does it exactly mean to be “future-fit”, and how do we prepare for the unknown?
As part of the Training 2022 Conference and Expo, Go1 was delighted to present a fireside chat with Shannon Tipton of Emerging Stronger & Learning Rebels, Barnaby Dorfman of Go1, and Corey Yugler of Best Buddies International.
During the conversation, the three L&D professionals discussed how to stay relevant and competitive in the future of work, providing evidence-based insights and practical examples along the way.
Check out some of the interesting moments from the session below.
As Shannon explains, if you think everyone needs to eat a salad, but your audience really wants to eat a pizza, there has been an obvious disconnect somewhere along the line.
When looking at future-fit skills, we must be working towards building new skills and attitudes in the workplace to allow us to embrace the new of tomorrow. This is what the Emerging Stronger eBook is all about - and Shannon tells us more about it below.

L&D teams are facing the challenge of finding out what skills are needed and how to engage employees in learning to keep them and the organization future-fit. Shannon explains that when you switch your thinking to bringing the right tools to the right people at the right time and place, you will better equip your people with the skills needed to move forward.
As great as technology is, it is not the magic fix like so many might believe. Shannon and the panel believe that technology should merely be seen as an enabler rather than a problem solver. What does this mean? Corey explains how the diverse team at Best Buddies International are using the technology internally.
