My guest for this week’s Future of Work podcast is Maynard Webb, the former Chief Operating Officer at eBay; and currently Chairman of the Board at Yahoo!, and board member at Salesforce and Visa. Maynard is also the author of the recently released book, Rebooting Work: Transform How You Work in the Age of Entrepreneurship. This is a really fascinating discussion because Maynard is one of the most influential people in the worlds of business and technology, and is involved in so many amazing projects. We talk about the concepts from his book including the framework of employees, the employee experience, the role that Millennials play in the future of work, and the impact of technology. Maynard is really big on freelancing and I get his take on the future of this economy. Maynard also shares why people need to take professional and personal development into their own hands. We look at all sorts of fascinating topics. We also discuss where Maynard sees the future of work in the next five to ten years, and he shares his advice to management and employees. Maynard is definitely someone that you want to pay attention to. Enjoy this episode with Maynard Webb and let me know what you think!
