Peter Weddle, on Taking Charge of Your Career

The writer-speaker-recruiter Peter Weddle talks with me in the podcast below about a new kind of activism: career activism.

It’s a new way of thinking about work, different from the famous “free agent” mantra, different from just starting your own business, and different from working ’till you drop.

“Career activists aren’t workaholics,” he says. “They don’t spend 18 hours a day or seven days a week on the job. They enjoy their life outside the workplace as well as within it by being very focused and disciplined in how they work … (yet) are no less hard working than the richest Americans.”

Find out more in the podcast below, and see why Weddle says that our way of thinking about talent is all wrong.
