If you’re in or approaching mid-life and feeling a bit invisible, you might be under valuing one of the most important things you bring to the table: experience.
Enter my guest, Chip Conley, who reminds us: Digital skills are will fade or evolve over time. Human skills such as good judgement, specialized knowledge, ability to collaborate and coach never expire.
Chip is the hospitality maverick and NYT bestselling author who disrupted his favorite industry… twice. At age 26 he founded Joie de Vivre Hospitality (JdV), transforming an inner-city motel into the second largest boutique hotel brand in America. He sold JdV after running it as CEO for 24 years, and soon the young founders of Airbnb asked him to help transform their promising start-up into the world’s leading hospitality brand.
Chip has written five books at the intersection of psychology and business. In his recent book, Wisdom@Work: The Making of a Modern Elder where he shares his unexpected journey at midlife and inspires us to embrace wisdom as a path to growing whole, not old.
