CPHR Nova Scotia is pleased to partner with CPHR BC & YK on this learning opportunity.

CPHR CPD hours: 1.5

Borrowing from the language of jazz musicians, the gig economy refers to the significant increase of short term, contract, temporary and free lance work being done today in organizations of all sizes and in every sector of the economy. Full-time, long-term secure jobs for everyone is no longer the best way to get work done in fast moving organizations.

This new reality has created a profound shift in career management that few of us are ready for, but many of us have already experienced. This insightful webinar provides a practical approach to create the building blocks necessary to establish a career that will thrive on this current fluid environment by exploring the new economics of career security.

Whether you are in the early years of your career journey, navigating your mid-career years looking at another decade or two of work or are trying to squeeze out a few more years before winding your career down, you will find this program very helpful.

In this session, participants will learn:

  • Explore the forces reshaping organizations today resulting in this fundamental shift in how work is getting done.
  • Discover the four components of career management: know yourself / know your marketplace / have something valuable to offer / run your career as if it were your business.
  • Uncover the essential economic principles of career security necessary to thrive in this job insecure marketplace.
  • Measure your current level of readiness for this rapidly evolving world of work.
Who Should Attend
Anyone who has a vested interest in managing their career in a way to capitalize on the current dynamic marketplace. This includes:
  • Young people starting out their careers.
  • Mid-career people.
  • People late in their career

Chris Edgelow is Founder & President of Sundance Consulting Inc. For more than 30 years he has consulted with organizations around the world. His work has always focused on leadership, change and capitalizing on our rapidly transforming world.

Someone once described Chris as a serial entrepreneur. Except for a challenging few years working for an organization, Chris has always worked for himself. Yet, he never suggests anyone should leave their current job to work for themselves. That is, all too often, a pathway to failure.

He has learned how to apply the principles of running a business to managing a career. Very practical in his approach, he will guide you through a way of thinking about where your career has taken you so far, where you are now, where you want your career to go and how to get it there.
