Exponential change is at our doorstep. The World Economic Forum states that we are on the brink of experiencing a Fourth Industrial Revolution. Some predict that we will undergo changes in multiple aspects of our lives in the next five years on a scale comparable to what we’ve experienced in the previous 50 years. This paper focuses on the effect that these rapid, unpredictable, paradoxical, and tangled (RUPT) changes will have on the talent landscape. It explores how organizations and individual leaders can adapt to—and leverage—these changes into an opportunity to thrive amidst the turbulence.
