In the face of such uncertainty, the key to success is to think and act likes an entrepreneur: to be nimble and self-reliant, to be innovative, and to know how to network and stand out from the crowd.

    In the book The Alliance: Managing Talent in the Networked Age, authors Chris Yeh and Ben Casnocha, along with Reid Hoffman, talk about the relationship between managers and employees and why an alliance style of communication between the two parties is the most beneficial. They refer to this style as the "tour of duty" model. This type of communication consists of a mission objective, which gives the employee a better understanding of what he or she is trying to accomplish.
