Our exposure to exponential graphs can be plotted on an exponential graph. The change of pace in the world has and continues to escalate and our old models of thinking, decision making, planning and leadership no longer work. We must discard old models and seek and embrace new thinking to cope with the world we are in now and the world that is changing around us.
Without a change of thinking about leadership, thought leadership and speaking, we run the risk of effectively leading our teams and companies into ruin.
In an exponential world, leaders need to think like futurists, be comfortable with not knowing, and learn to draw on creativity and instigate innovation. Most essentially, a futurist exponential leader needs to embrace constant change and never stop investing in learning.
Linear, local thinking has no place in a quantum, global world.
