Simple Habits for Complex Times (getAbstract Summary)

Survival and success in a world full of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity means you must do what is difficult and often counterintuitive. While these issues are by no means new, the circumstances of today’s world are different than in the past. Eons of natural selection coded you to act first and think later. You must adapt to a new world that demands the opposite. In this audio-only course adapted from their book Simple Habits for Complex Times, consultants Jennifer Garvey Berger and Keith Johnston present a challenging series of recommendations that will make you think until it hurts. They offer advice on addressing complexity, how to set a clear direction for the future, and how to think rationally as well as emotionally. By following their lessons—gather varied perspectives, listen, experiment, learn, adjust and repeat—you can work your way toward an agile, alert, and ever-adapting organization.
