How do we separate our work selves and our personal lives when technology and social media have made those lines blurrier than ever? Joining us today to unpack this topic and three key “future of work” trends is Elizabeth J. Sandler, founder and CEO of Echo Juliette, a forward-thinking company that works with executive teams on strategy and leadership development.
Elizabeth is a seasoned professional with 25 years of experience as a COO and Strategist in Investment Banking and Private Equity in the US and UK. In 2019 she left her corporate career to pursue her mission of making workplaces more successful and fulfilling for everyone. Her company Juliette Works advises organizations on investing in Key-Suite women — a fundamental component of any organization. Elizabeth also serves on the board of two public companies, two private equity funds, and two non-profits, and is a sought-after speaker at conferences, companies, and universities.
In today’s conversation, we hear from Elizabeth about three top-of-mind “future of work” trends, before discussing how a comprehensive understanding of these trends today can serve us in the long run. Tuning in you’ll learn about the transformative potential of AI in our work lives; how companies should be approaching social media; and the key things we need to understand about the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) landscape.
The introduction of technologies like generative AI has already had a huge impact on how we work, but this is only the beginning. How we choose to show up and implement these technologies will shape our work lives for years to come. To hear all of Elizabeth’s thought-provoking insights on the transformative impact these developments could have on the future of work, be sure to tune in today!
