A high-leverage point to give you and a competitive edge—for your current job or the next one you hope to land—is to be Future Ready, that is, to adopt an attitude of being adaptable, flexible, and confident in utilizing the skills of the information and knowledge professional. Being ready for the future enables us to be more connected, relevant and valuable.
With the information landscape changing dynamically, it is our ability to learn and adjust that is critical. My initiative as SLA President is to encourage information professional to become Future Ready by adopting strategies that will prepare us for emerging opportunities in the information industry. I’ll discuss examples of some bright spots.
