If you’re a future-focused leader looking to lead innovative change, inspire and energise your people, while adapting to technology shifts, the Leadership Futurelab rapidly provides the insights and tools you need.
In a fast-changing environment today’s leaders need new ways of working, otherwise they risk falling behind the expectations and working habits of the next-generation workforce. At the same time a new leadership counter-trend is emerging, where the ability to reflect deeply and mindfully is needed to gain clarity amongst the noise.
The Leadership Futurelab has been designed to achieve both. To combine fast-paced learning with the space to reflect and gain deep insight from other leaders. So in just two days you’ll develop renewed vision and focused energy for the year ahead, combined with leading-edge skills to collaborate and lead with agility.
This Futurelab is ideal for:
- Executive Leaders
- People and Talent Leaders
- Digital Leaders
- High-potential Leaders
- Board Members
- Anyone who needs to lead others into an inspiring future
The Leadership Futurelab is based on Dave Wild’s in-depth experience at the leading-edge of leadership development including:
- CEO Futurelab with Chief Executives from across the country
- Digital Leadership Labs across government with CIOs and other senior Leaders
- Digital visioning session with the e‑government leaders of New Zealand, South Korea, Estonia and United Kingdom
- Innovation study tours to Silicon Valley and New York
What you will learn and action:
The Leadership Futurelab is a unique blend of agile learning with reflective conversation.
This approach combines presentation, video, group discussion, collaborative teams and personal reflection. All tools and presentations are openly shared so can be later reviewed and used with your own teams.
The focus is on rapidly developing new skills that can applied immediately for greater personal impact. To achieve this the two days are structured across four critical areas of future leadership development…
Day 1 – Morning
The Leadership Futurelab begins with an interactive briefing on critical trends for 2017. But it doesn’t stop there, because you’ll then learn how to accelerate your own ability to scan for trends. To go further. Faster.
However it’s one thing to identify a market shift. It’s far harder to convince others to take action as a result. So you’ll then actively apply visionary leadership techniques to challenge the status quo, inspiring others to take action.
Results: You’ll gain fresh insight into the latest leadership trends and shifts. More importantly you’ll learn how to discover and track trends for yourself – with a focus on covering more ground in less time. You’ll also develop your leadership capability to present and share these insights in a way that rises above the noise, inspiring your team and organisation into action.
Day 1 – Afternoon
In the afternoon of Day 1 we then go behind the scenes. Learning the game-changing technique of leveraging giant insights. While others focus on the innovation end result – wanting to become the next Apple or to Uberise their industry – you’ll learn the power of refocusing on the innovators leading the change.
You’ll also learn and experiment with agile learning techniques that not only save you hours, but decades. Using advanced digital research techniques you’ll discover how to leap ahead of the competition – rapidly locating and sharing insights into the future rather than just lessons from the past.
Results: You’ll develop enhanced mindset flexibility giving you the ability to see strategic options others are blind to. Central to this you’ll learn how to leverage the latest thinking using a range of digital curation tools including Flipboard, Evernote, OneNote, Pinterest and Twitter.
Day 2 – Morning
The Leadership Futurelab is designed as a two-day experience so that on the morning of Day 2 you’re able to apply and extend the learnings from Day 1 with renewed energy and a fresh perspective.
The day begins by sharing overnight reflections on the day before, then moves into active coaching across a wide range of idea generation tools. These range from brainstorming and design thinking techniques, through to more advanced innovation methods involving serendipity and experimentation.
Results: You’ll be able to lead more effective and energising brainstorms. You’ll also have new capabilities across a much broader range of creative leadership techniques. These will include insight techniques used to design customer-centred solutions.
