Adapt, Evolve And Change - Embracing Changes In An Ever-Transforming Work Environment Course Overview
There’s a popular saying, in business particularly, which goes like this: “No one is indispensable.” This means that you are not special; that you can be easily replaced by anyone we (somewhat carefully) pick off the street.
As with most jobs nowadays, a career in any industry may undergo changes and the organization would be affected (in big or small ways). This “easy and instant replacement” mentality doesn’t feel right as the truth is, everyone is indispensable.
