Jeff Gothelf helps organizations build better products and executives build the cultures that build better products. He is the author of the book Forever Employable and co-author of the award-winning book Lean UX. Jeff works as a coach, consultant, and keynote speaker helping companies bridge the gaps between business agility, digital transformation, product management, and human-centered design. Most recently, Jeff co-founded Sense & Respond Press, a publishing house for practical business books for busy executives.
We wanted to connect with Jeff as we were intrigued by his new book, Forever Employable and how it intersected with our thinking around careers. In our conversation, we talk about how he got into design, products and innovation, why he wrote Forever Employable, what are practical steps to building your own platform, how the Ikigai framework is applicable to teams, and how he sees the future of career and employment.
