Why it’s important
An ever-changing workplace leaves many employees wondering how they can excel in their careers—or even just survive the next downsizing. Uncertainty in the workplace not only affects an employee’s effectiveness, but the strain on mental health can spread to other areas of a worker’s life.
In Tomorrowmind, authors Seligman and Kellerman give actionable advice and plans to better prepare employees for the uncertainty in their careers. Seligman and Kellerman urge readers to develop strong social connections and the skills of foresight, innovation, and resilience.
Surviving economic uncertainty isn’t just about giving the best performance; it’s also about cultivating strong, meaningful relationships in the workplace. Tomorrowmind authors urge both the employee and employer to foster a workplace that is centered on relationships and connections between colleagues.
Kellerman is trained in psychiatry and fMRI research. She is the founding CEO of LifeLink and CPO at BetterUp. She has been published in The Atlantic Online, Harvard Business Review, and Forbes.
Seligman is a University of Pennsylvania professor, director of the Positive Psychology Center, and former president of the American Psychological Association. His work has been published in The New York Times, Time, and Newsweek. He has authored or co-authored more than 30 books.
