Diane authored The Gig Economy, a bestselling book on Amazon that has been translated into five languages. It is featured widely in national media including CNN, Forbes, Huffington Post, and The New York Times.

In this podcast, Diane puts the spotlight on job-based, not gig-based education in our schools; and the emphasis on process, clock and the chair (jobs) versus results and deliverables (gigs). Times are changing, and she believes our education system and job training needs to catch up.

As more people turn to freelancing and gigs, they’ve shifted their priorities to short term skills training, flexible work schedules, and increased time with family

Diane speaks about the Gig Economy at industry conferences and corporate events around the world, and for organizations including AARP, Antenna, Catalant, Harvard Business School, Harvard Business Review, and MITx.

She is a frequent contributor to Harvard Business Review and lectures at universities nationally, including Boston College, Brandeis, Dartmouth, Harvard Kennedy School, Northeastern, Northwestern, the University of Washington, and Virginia Western.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How trends in job market are making the gig economy the more attractive option.
  • How millennials and students can prepare for the future.
  • Why companies need to rethink how they structure their workforce.
  • Ways that education is changing with the increased availability of online courses.
  • What resources are available out there for those who want to freelance or work gigs.
  • Why time management will be increasingly important.
