Develop Your Own Futurist Skills - Workshop #1

Tue Sep 10, 09:00 - Tue Sep 10, 12:00

Event is online


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 3 hour 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)

This webinar will help you develop:

  • Your critical thinking skills
  • Your creativity, curiosity and imagination
  • Your collaborative and inter-personal skills
  • Your leadership insights
  • Your professional development skills
  • Your futures literacy
