Two great books to help you manage your career

Future Proof Yourself by David Yeabsley

In these unpredictable times, there is every reason for you to want to realise your skills and lifestyle choices to look forward to an adventurous and exciting future.

Are you worth it?  Of course you are!  You are your greatest asset and investment.  Welcome to Future Proofing Yourself.

For us as individuals, do we do the same? Are we looking after ourselves? Are our skills, experience, knowledge and thinking up to date? Do we sit and analyse what our employers are going to want in the future from us? Do we consider how the skills market is changing and what is needed in the next 5 to 10 years?

Do we treat our employers as customers and consider what do they need from us, now and in the future as their markets change?  Are we looking after ourselves, so are we are fit and strong enough to still be of value to our employers in the future and, in return, making ourselves employable for the rest of our careers?

This book is for everyone.  Reflecting on his own personal experiences and those of his family, friends and people that he has coached and mentored. David Yeabsley shares how at times we will all feel vulnerable in our working careers and worry about the future. We can feel lost and lacking in confidence.

In Future Proof Yourself, David discusses how these feelings can be managed, encouraging you to discover how YOU can take control of situations and make the right choices for your future career and personal life. 

What could you expect from a life that you have Future Proofed? 

Well you can certainly look forward to having:

  • the ability to take control of your professional career
  • new skills and experiences
  • new people to network with
  • new learning opportunities

It will also guide you to:

  • develop your confidence
  • create new ways of thinking
  • achieve the right balance in your life
  • enable you to stay relevant and employable for the rest of your working career

Investment in yourself applies to all areas of your life, not just your career. 
Be careful though, following the Future Proof Yourself guidance you just might start living it and become the best version of yourself!

‘Why should you make the effort?
Well, if you can’t look after yourself, who is going to do it for you?
