…the High Speed Train to the Future of Work

An apt metaphor! Some people, of course, will choose to board a high-speed train that ends at Middle Street, where they will transfer to old buses and slowlyhigh-speed-train-207246_1280 reach their destinations. Others will board a high-speed train that zips past Middle Street and ends at their destination—the Future.

You might say that the first train gets you half-way to where you need to be but, the second train gets you to where you are going!

The changing world of work is like choosing to board a one of these trains.

The only question is: Will YOU get on-board the train to the Future of work?

Here are a few comparisons between the two types of people.
