Topics We Explored:
- Rebel and leadership are both terms that people are simultaneously attracted to and repelled by; however, the best aspect of both is how we can thrive in these uncertain times
- Why instead of trying to contain uncertainty, it’s more advantageous to prepare for and learn to live in that uncertainty
- What future-proofing is, and how it can be dangerous to focus on it because it doesn’t allow you to see opportunities in the middle of difficult times
- The four ideas in Larry’s latest book: a sense of incompleteness, time relevance of uncertain times, looking for something new in leadership, and identifying patterns of success for people leading in uncertain times
“Future readiness is about that recognition that you are going to continually adapt, and your ability to be open enough to see what’s changing around you, to revisit your assumptions and whether or not they still hold.” – Larry Robertson (Tweet this.)
