Tuesday, September 12, 2023 - 13:30 to 15:00

Traditional leadership practices are often based on the fundamental idea that we can plan and predict our future. This is a reality that today’s leaders cannot recognize. Most leaders are getting overwhelmed by the uncertainty and complexity of the environment they must deal with. This is causing most of the traditional leadership tools to fall short, creating a situation where leaders and organizations find themselves paralyzed and incapable of acting timely. Anticipatory leadership is about including long-term vision and an understanding of continuous change in daily management, not by forecasting from the present, but by backcasting from the future. Eco-systems thinking, distributed leadership, local cultural dialects, and redesigning the organization are vital parts of this. And they have a strengthened sense of imagination, involvement, and storytelling.
