Great Minds Don’t Think Alike

 14th April 2016 by gihan


Einstein said we can’t solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them. I’m no Einstein, but it’s obvious that is a key insight into becoming fit for the future. Many organisations, leaders, and teams are still stuck in old ways of thinking – sometimes BECAUSE they have worked so well in the past. Learn how to think differently so you gain a competitive edge and stay ahead of the game.

I conducted a webinar about this today, and you can watch the recording here:

After the webinar, I asked participants “What was the most useful thing you learned today?” Here are some of their answers (If you want to understand the reference to rockets and spaceships, watch the video!):

“To embrace change and step outside my comfort zone”

“Different way of thinking”

“Not waiting for next rocket. Don’t make judgements on what you see.”

“Seeing the invisible!”

“The idea that the more experienced one is, the more one has to let go on occasions”

“I need to get on with embracing some changes I’ve been ignoring”

“Understanding that I don’t know everything and things can change. Need to test my assumptions. Also, great reminder not to wait for the next spaceship.”

“Look beyond my own horizons before making a decision. Don’t just rely on my observations”

The Future Proof Webinar Series

The Future Proof webinar series will keep you in touch with our future – what’s ahead, what it means for us, and how to stay ahead of the game.

In each webinar, I’ll cover an important topic about the future – for example, the shift of power to Asia, the changing workplace, healthcare technology, the shift to customer-centric business, big data, and more. This is not just theory; I’ll also give you practical examples and ideas for you to future-proof your organisation, teams, and career.
