You, the young EU person, as the future worker will have to:
- be the changemasters, not just prepared to accept change. You will be willing to control it. You will want to initiate it.
- re-invent yourself constantly in terms of career paths. This is painful, as we tend to stick to what works. You will survive (not thrive, survive) as one-person profit centres, as being self-employed with an employing organisation (intra-preneur some say).
- take more and more control over the progression of your career. Those who have worked for one company for 10 years have only delivered the same 12 months' work ten times in a row.
- have a mix of traits: e.g. excellent inter-personal skills and great focus on objectives.
- put in a vision and a strong sense of common purpose. You will set aims you will not achieve in your lifetime.
- grow by identifying top performers. You will learn from them directly.
