Flip Thinking
Flip thinking is transforming problems into opportunities by letting go of what you think things are, to consider what they could be.


Futuristic Thinking
Futuristic thinkers have the ability to look past the events of today and into the possibilities of tomorrow.


What you will learn

How to use innovative thinking as your key to the doors of: What’s New, What’s Better, What’s Next
Be comfortable with ambiguity and instead of looking for one right answer among the wrong answers use ambiguity to see patterns for new thinking
Take the: ‘So much to do, such little time, I’d better slow down’ approach, when the direction is unclear, no matter how great the urgency, you need to reflect and approach the situation in new ways

Futuristic Thinking Modules

Keys to 3 Doors

What’s New: use the Ideas Board to look for ideas everywhere
What’s Better: Exchange and interpret ideas
What’s Next: Make your decision

Ambiguity

Be open to what can and can’t work rather than looking for the right answer, become comfortable with the uncomfortable to drive new ideas
Having chosen the key to the door to your organisation’s future, you want to say with conviction “that’s the right door to go through” so that people will want to join you, BUT you also need to use ambiguity to say “ That’s probably not the right, door, I bet I’m wrong, I need to look for clues that we need to choose a different door”
Develop the ability to commit to opening the door and charging ahead while looking for evidence to prove you are wrong, to build your tolerance for ambiguity

Prototyping Workshop

Take a step back to look at the issues that haven’t yet been solved, stopping to consider what you can do to make a difference, before further consideration of how you can you do it
Use iterative processes to learn invaluable lessons to act on feedback to be in a position of responding early before going down the wrong path
Use all of this to build up pace again and take the next steps based on data

Who this is for
Leaders who need to imagine a desired future state and how to get there.
