Bold New Breed

A podcast for people on the edge

with Jane McConnell of NetJMC

  • What is the Bold New Breed?

    A bold new breed of employee is emerging today – the gig mindsetters. The gig mindset is at the edge of how people and organizations are evolving today.

    The gig mindset is a new breed because it combines a salaried employee status with freelance gig worker behaviors. They are salaried employees, but they don’t work at all like traditional employees

    They challenge the status quo, discover new ways of working, and develop their own skills and expertise while advancing the goals of the organization.

  • What is this Podcast about?

    This podcast focuses on people and organizations. It is based on data from global research and stories from people who are part of the bold new breed. It covers three dimensions: individual people, organizations and society as a whole.


    If you are interested or part of the Bold New Breed, you can subscribe to my Briefing Notes via Substack where the notes are hosted, including archives from the past few year.

    You can also apply to join a community of gig mindsetters who share stories, frustrations, accomplishments and ambitions in a private space.
