It seems like the year has only just begun, but somehow it’s December already. Everyone is looking back on their year, seeing what has changed and trying to predict what’s to come in 2016.
It’s a tricky matter, and an important one. Being able to see which way the winds are blowing is one thing, but being able to tell when they’re going to change and prepare accordingly is one of the most coveted skills in the business world. As a relatively young industry, the community space is particularly prone to change and development. Community professionals need to be able to quickly adapt and develop new skills if they expect to keep up.
For those of us who are not blessed with second sight, how can we ensure that we’re ready for the potential changes in our work in the coming year? The answer is simple: ask the smartest people you know. Thankfully, we know some pretty smart people.
