Description

Susan Ascher is a Futurist.  She also happens to be the Founder of The Ascher Group, her executive and business coaching firm. But mostly, she’s a one-women think tank.  She’s been thinking about the nature of work, careers and living a more fulfilling life for as long as she can remember. In this episode Susan shares her Five Ps for thriving in the “Next Normal,” as she calls it, when we finally emerge from our Covid-19 lockdown. 
 
Specifically, we chat about:
  • The importance of self-confidence and why you shouldn’t fear failure
  • What she means by “The Pause That Refreshes”
  • Her mantra, “Read to Lead”
  • Pivotal moments in her career and how she seized the opportunities
  • Why she’s looking beyond the New Normal, to her “Next Normal”
  • Regardless of whether you own your own business, or work within a large corporation, what you need to be doing NOW to win during the Covid-19 pandemic, and 
  • What you need to do NOW to position yourself for the new future of work
  • Her Five “Ps”
  • Her NEW Five “Ps” and, importantly, HOW and WHEN to apply them
  • What you need to do if you are laid off
  • How to handle a business closing
  • Why you need to move from networking to building deep relationships
  • The importance of “give to get”
  • And so much more
Corporations, executives and career-minded individuals rely on Susan for thoughtful advice and the frequent reality check. The best business advice she ever received: “Think like a man, work like a dog, and act like a lady.” “It may sound old-fashioned, Susan muses, but the advice still rings true.” 
 
For Susan, the future is NOW. Go out and grab it!
