Depending on whom you ask, todays college graduates will change careers an average of 4-6 times during their lives. Note that I did not say jobs.

Industries will rise and fall in months rather than years. That means the single most important skill for success in todays and tomorrows professional landscape is the ability to change continuously.

In our career and engagement programs at Inspired Work, weve found that true personal change is often frightening to many professionals.
