About this episode
In this episode we discuss how fear limits foresight, why leaders need to balance the ability to zoom out and zoom in, how to create the pause and space for foresight, the power of being vulnerable enough to ask questions and not just provide answers, why organizations of the future will scale learning instead of efficiency, and why the current climate of exponential change creates exponential opportunities.
