Many have talked about “the new normal,” but what does that practically mean for leaders who are looking to make the future more inclusive and dynamic?
I’m excited to invite you to explore this question and share your feelings.
As we move further into a volatile and unpredictable future, leaders need to be able see the full spectrum of possibility and seek out the information needed to make decisions. But outdated ways of thinking are obstacles to leaders developing these skills. We can’t afford to slow progress any longer as we hurl toward the urgent future.
Outdated and rigid categorical thinking has limited our collective potential to see the spectrum of possibilities in front of us. Command-and-control leadership models have privileged certainty and hierarchy, but that kind of thinking becomes more dangerous the more uncertain our future becomes. Leaders should instead be seeking clarity and elucidating the full spectrum of possibility. This is the mindset i am telling the leaders to develop.
Again, I’m excited to invite you to explore this question and share your views on comment column below.
