Do you want to reinvent the second half of your career? 'Learn how
to cultivate a beginner's mind...and be the sage counselor' - from
the foreword by Brian Chesky, cofounder and CEO of Airbnb. In our
increasingly accelerated world that venerates the new, bright and
shiny, many of us in mid-career sense that the ground is shifting
beneath our feet, leaving us feeling invisible, undervalued and
threatened by the 'digital natives' nipping at our heels. Chip
Conley is not buying it, arguing that experience is on the brink of
a comeback. At the age of fifty-two, after selling the boutique
hotel company he founded and ran for twenty-four years, Conley
joined Airbnb as Head of Global Hospitality and Strategy. Though
rich with experience, the industry veteran lacked the digital
fluency of his twenty-something colleagues. He quickly discovered
that he'd been hired as a teacher and mentor, but was also in many
ways a student and intern. What emerged is the secret to thriving
as a midlife worker in today's world: learning to marry wisdom and
experience with curiosity, a beginner's mind and a willingness to
evolve. Igniting a bold, urgent conversation about age and ageism
in the workplace, Conley liberates the term 'elder' from the stigma
of 'elderly', and reveals the value of wisdom that can only be
accrued through years on the planet. Wisdom at Work will teach you
how to be indispensable in the second half of your working life.
'As more people live in good health for longer they are asking
themselves what they should do with this new stage of life. In this
marvellous book Chip Conley gives them a great answer - rewire
don't retire. The Modern Elder is about combining a youthfulness in
later life with the maturity and wisdom of experience' Andrew
Scott, co-author of The 100 Year Life Chip Conley is a New York
Times bestselling author, hospitality entrepreneur, and leader at
the forefront of the sharing economy. At age 26, he founded Joie de
Vivre Hospitality and turned it into the second largest boutique
hotel brand in the U.S. Chip is now the Strategic Advisor for
Hospitality and Leadership at Airbnb. He is the recipient of
hospitality's highest honor, the Pioneer Award.
---------------------------------------- 'This is ultimately a book
about how we can develop deeper connections, disrupt how we think
about teaching and learning, and make more meaningful contributions
in our lives and our careers. With stories, questions, and
strategies, Chip shares his heart and wisdom on every page. This is
exactly what we need right now! '- Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, Author
of the #1 New York Times Bestseller, Braving the Wilderness 'An
engaging, timely exploration of how to bring more wisdom into our
work lives. Chip Conley has lived it, and here he teaches you what
it takes to find more of it' Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling
author of Originals, Give and Take, and Option B with Sheryl
Sandberg 'I love the idea that society needs more Modern Elders who
offer generosity without an agenda. Chip Conley's articulation of
the growing need of wisdom and emotional intelligence in a world
obsessed with speed and digital intelligence is spot-on! Every
young company could use some "wisdom insurance"' Marshall
