In order to effectively prepare for the future of work, it’s critical that we—as individual learners and learning providers—truly understand the types of skills that will be necessary to succeed.
Jerel Bonner, a ‘human behavior awareness’ consultant and co-founder of Coralling Chaos, really walks the walk when it comes to continually learning to adapt and evolve to meet the demands of the future.

Returning for his second interview on the Podcast, Jerel joins Jeff at Leading Learning Global Headquarters to discuss the idea of flow and its connection to learning, as well as how it relates to other major concepts including grit, mindset, and authentic happiness.
