We can be agents of change for the future
Our plans are not ephemeral. We can use tools to make them more concrete and actionable. Like any problem that has a long term consequence – health, weight, financial success – small, initial changes can make a huge impact on where you will end up and a course correction now can save your business from ruin, or position you for success. Learn to read the future sooner rather than later.
With new terminology, access to tools and models, you can make futures plans with more confidence.
Certain factors in the future cannot be changed and we need to learn how to respond to them, and determine what other factors are under our influence.
Understanding how change happens, how we respond to it and why it seems so chaotic, allows us to make more practical plans with greater chance of success.
With unique and appropriate scenarios to your business sector, you can start to weave a powerful vision for change.
The Futures Fluency program is presented over 2 days. Besides the volume of material to learn, this program requires an understanding of the philosophy of futures thinking, so conversation and practical exercises are required to have a deeper and more valuable understanding of the outcomes. This program can be presented both online or in person. Group size can be discussed.
Should the time investment prove too costly, you may consider the shorter “How to Think Like a Futurist” workshop which can be completed, online in a 3 hour live session.
Participants will receive a copy of Charlotte’s book, Futures Alchemist. On completion, participants will receive a Certificate of Completion of the Futures Fluency course as well as a designed set of Scenarios and a set of Trend Cards, developed from this particular course. A digital workbook will also be shared by email, prior to the sessions.
