A New Era That Demands New Agility
Permanence has been torn to shreds. We are in a time that demands a new agility and flexibility - and everyone must have the skill and insight to prepare for a future that is rushing at them faster than ever before.
Leaders must focus more on preparation than on planning. Planning relies on predictability. But preparation helps leaders stay clear amid uncertainty. Planning assumes continuity; preparation equips leaders to be flexible enough to seize new opportunities.
In a time of drastic change, it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists. ERIC HOFFER
