Reframe & Reset Your Career Podcast

Episode 15. Becoming Forever Employable – Jeff Gothelf

Is it possible to future proof your career so that you become forever employable? Jeff Gothelf, the author of Forever Employable, shared his insights on this and much more on Episode 15 of the Reframe & Reset Your Career podcast.

In this episode, we will learn about:

His Early Life As A Musician;

Transitioning To Becoming A UX Designer;

How “Enthusiastic Scepticism” Has Shaped his Career;

Thinking Of Your Career As A Start Up;

Noticing And Adapting To Industry Trends;

The Five Steps and Qualities To Becoming Forever Employable;

Self Confidence & Managing Imposter Syndrome;

The Importance Of Execution & Taking Action;

Why Story Telling Is So Important; and

Creating A Routine.

Jeff helps organisations build better products and executives build the cultures that build better products. He is the co-author of the award-winning book Lean UX and the Harvard Business Review Press book Sense & Respond.

Jeff started his career as a designer working with the first companies to use the internet as a new communication, sales and service channel. He now works as a coach, consultant and keynote speaker helping companies bridge the gaps between business agility, digital transformation, product management and human-centred design.

Most recently Jeff co-founded Sense & Respond Press, a publishing house for practical business books for busy executives. His most recent book, Forever Employable, was published in June 2020. He has also written Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking.

Jeff told me: “If I could figure out how to reclaim control over my career so instead of me pushing myself out into the market, if I could create a situation where I am attracting, I’m pulling opportunities towards me, well that would guarantee that no matter what came my way, whether I was 35 or 40 or 45 or whatever there was always an inbound stream of opportunities”.
