The question is really, how we become irrelevant. Rick Warren, a leading author, philanthropist, speaker, business and church leader explains by answering this question. When you realize the best way to move forward, you discover how to stay relevant. Never stop learning. Leaders are learners. Always ask the right questions.  According to Wadors (2016) managers often make the mistake of thinking that employees need only learn new sets of skills to be prepared. The reality is, it’s more about continuous learning on how to learn during the lifetime of a career.

Rick has lectured at numerous universities, world forums and the United Nations, and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Watch the TED Talks video below as he explains why it is important for businesses and organizations to stay relevant, especially in the new economy.
