Welcome to episode 127 with Adeline Tiah.

She is passionate about building brands and high-performance teams.

Over the last 20 years, Adeline has earned her stripes in marketing across different industries from retail, tech, banking and more recently in fintech/startup. Along the way she got herself certified as a Leadership coach and a Human Centred Design Practitioner.

She also had a wonderful adventure in several digital and brand transformational journeys in the organisations she worked for. Through international brands such as HSBC, Standard Chartered and UOB, she gained many valuable lessons on organizational culture and how companies are run.

As a corporate executive, she has worked with many people and uncovered common themes of people who seem to thrive regardless of what life throws at them. This led her to write her book – REINVENT 4.0. It’s a collection of stories and life lessons from her career journey and those of the clients she’s coached.

What were her observations as we chatted?

The main principle she has on the future of work is that change is no longer constant, but rather exponential. She notes that over the past couple of years, more and more Black Swan events are happening. Digital disruptions are also transforming businesses. This uncertainty means that nobody can predict what the future of work will look like, but individuals can embrace the right mindset and skill set to thrive.

Reinventing yourself is not a destination, but a journey of version upgrades. She means it’s where individuals embrace a curiosity mindset and constantly look at how they can upskill themselves to be placed in new or evolving roles. Her book, Reinvent 4.0, explores these ideas and provides practical guidance on how individuals can navigate the changing landscape of work.

I noted that it’s important constant change requires individuals to stay informed and ahead of the game in terms of AI and other innovations. Adeline emphasized that individuals should not limit themselves to job titles or descriptions but should instead focus on problem-solving and equipping themselves with the necessary skill sets to tackle new challenges. She called her book “Reinvent,” which emphasizes the importance of entrepreneurial thinking, risk-taking, and inclusivity among other things. She also feels we need noticeable personal branding, vulnerability, empathy, networking, and transdisciplinary learning.

Overall, she is emphasizing the need for adaptability, creativity, and a willingness to learn and grow in order to succeed in the ever-evolving world of work.

I really hope you value this episode. I feel Adeline made some really valuable points
