A Time of Answers?

We are relocating from a space of certainty, to a place of doubt: our domain based Organisations, with the systems of education that feed them, and the markets that sustain them, all evolving. This is not a time for answers, but rather a time for questions, and to consider the mechanisms of sense making that will help us to ask the right ones.

What Can You Leave Behind?

At heart, a curiosity, a willingness to ask not simply what we can carry forwards, but what we can leave behind: systems, processes, beliefs, and power. It takes a certain humility to ask these questions.

When we are conditioned to frame situations, and find the meaning fast, to maintain ambiguity, uncertainty, and doubt, for protracted periods, can be hard. But remember: the winners will not necessarily be the ones that find an answer fast. They will be the ones that find the right questions.
