Force Majeure: A Futurist's Guide To Boldly Thriving On Your Terms In The Future Of Work
Amazon
August 03, 2021
An expert guide for professionals seeking to shift, pivot, reinvent, and unapologetically thrive on their terms as the future of work continues to dynamically unfold. You are the architect of your future. This book will provide you with the tools to reimagine it, design it, and live it boldly on your terms. The future is waiting for you!

The future of work was now, that is, until COVID-19 accelerated its unfolding by five to seven years, right before our eyes. The rules have changed. For most workers today, the unfolding of the future of work, particularly between 2021 and 2030 will be a series of disruptive, unanticipated, and uncontrollable events. It will be their force majeure. However, if you prepare and pivot, the future of work can be empowering, dynamic, and the catalyst for designing how to work on your terms with purpose and intention. The book is built on the author's framework of the power and intersectionality of being resilient, hyper-relevant, audaciously bold, and thriving. Dr. Horton integrates her experiences and expert insights with leading industry research to guide you through the path forward, to think, act and perform like a futurist, unapologetically pursue new possibilities, leverage power currencies, and to thrive in the future of work on your terms!

Pew Research Center: The Metaverse in 2040
The Pew Research Center
July 01, 2022
Terri Horton, founder and CEO at FuturePath LLC, hopefully predicted, “We will experience much of how we live in a 3D virtual world in the future. The metaverse will facilitate fundamental shifts in how and where we work, learn, socialize, entertain, travel and engage in daily activities. It will blur the lines between the virtual world and the physical world. While we cannot fully predict the future, there are indicators that the world of work will be extraordinarily transformed by 2040. The impact on both employers and workers will be profound. In the metaverse of the future, workers will not only work remotely but also be able to ‘teleport’ anywhere in the world and experience work in virtual 3D locations of their choosing. Workers will have the ability to design their avatars and holograms, work, attend meetings and experience interactions with colleagues and clients from around the globe. The VR, AR, MR, AI and other futuristic technologies enabling these interactions will be so advanced that interactions in the metaverse will mimic the physical world, for example, in the context of sight, sound and feeling. Moreover, further in the future brain-computer interface technologies will eventually enable workers to think about work-related actions and execute, driving high levels of efficiency and productivity. These examples are just small snapshots of how worker experience will be transformed.”
