How to Think Like a Futurist

Thu Jun 9, 09:00 - Thu Jun 9, 12:00


We cannot delegate our critical thinking to others. Learn some models to start to think like a futurist. Make better choices. think more clearly. Discover new approaches. 

We are all natural futurists, but as with anything worthwhile, we can become better if we put some attention and focus on developing this professional development skill. 

In this workshop we will explore

  • Is it a fad? A trend? An anomaly? (Trend spotting)
  • If the world looked like this, then would I still be relevant? (Scenario Planning)
  • How do these unrelated issues cause a potential crisis point? (Axes of Uncertainty)
  • Is there anything outside my echo chamber? (Scanning)
  • Is this inevitable or can I decide where to go in the future? (Futures Cone)
