About the Master Class:
Is the speed of technological, economic, environmental, political, and social change “rewiring” humanity, and thus redefining work, income, consumption, education, and lifestyles in the 21st Century?
Many of today’s experts and thought leaders agree that our environment of accelerating volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity is ushering in a new era of human development, and this in turn will mean that we must intentionally reframe our mindset, activity, and purpose as a species.
In this creative and empowering session, we will dive into what humanity will “think, do and be” in light of the unprecendented changes taking place all around us. The session will give participants the chance to explore what those radical changes might mean for their personal journeys, their organizations, and their industries as they move into the future.
You will learn to:
- A method for recognizing your assumptions about the future that could keep you from seeing and leveraging the changing role of humans in learning, leading and creating new mindsets for redefining and reframing humanity in the rapidly changing environment of the 21st Century
- How humans are being “wired for next” by the technological and social changes all around us
- How to use Strategic Foresight tools to examine the extended ramifications of the shifting landscape
