Foresight: A Compelling Ability That Leaders Must Build (By Invite Only)
“A leader’s goal is not to see but to envision.” Jack Welch Transforming yourself from an ordinary leader to an effective leader requires foresight. Organizations and teams need leaders who can see clearly and astutely in the midst of confusing, chaotic, competitive and an ever-changing environment. “Foresight is a characteristic that enables the leader to understand the lessons from the past, the realities of the present and the likely consequence of a decision for the future”. Foresight is not about looking into a crystal ball to see the future. It is about actively learning. It is about playing out future possibilities &scenarios in our minds based on the past and present knowledge we have about our organizations and the world. It is about identifying with clarity what will be the likely future outcomes of decisions we make in the present. Embracing all of them brings a holistic perspective to leadership.
