Futures Thinking is one of the most critical skill sets for organizational leadership in the 21st century. We are used to depending on hindsight to run our businesses, schools, and countries, but this can no longer be our practice in a rapidly changing world.  Our leaders must develop the skill of identifying emerging issues, building alternative scenarios, and creating transformational futures. Attending The Futures School™ is a first step to developing these foresight skills.

See our upcoming sessions below.
