NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED We are in a time of accelerating disruptive change. In a VUCA world—one characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity—traditional leadership skills won’t be enough, noted futurist Bob Johansen argues. Drawing on the latest forecasts from the Institute for the Future—the first futures think tank ever to outlive its forecasts—this powerful book explores the external forces that are shaking the foundations of leadership and unveils ten critical new leadership skills. How adroit are you at dilemma flipping—turning problems that can’t be solved into opportunities? Can you develop bio-empathy—the ability to learn from and apply the principles of nature in your leadership? Are you able to practice immersive learning—dive into very different-from-you physical and online worlds and learn from them? Johansen provides role models, tools, and advice to help you develop these and seven other future leadership skills. In addition, Johansen deals with two new forces that are shaping the future. The first is the “digital natives”—people fifteen years and younger who have grown up in a digital world. The second is cloud-based supercomputing, which will enable extraordinarily rich new forms of connection, collaboration, and commerce. In this thoroughly updated and expanded second edition, Johansen is joined by the prestigious Center for Creative Leadership. CCL’s contributions help readers understand the new leadership skills by linking them to existing skills, and they provide analytics and exercises so readers can more fully develop these new skills.

Museums throughout the world are under increasing pressure in the wake of the 2008/2009 economic recession and the many pressing social and environmental issues that are assuming priority. The major focus of concern in the global museum community is the sustainability of museums in light of these pressures, not to mention falling attendance and the challenges of the digital world. Museums and the Paradox of Change provides a detailed account of how a major Canadian museum suffered a 40 percent loss in its operating budget and went on to become the most financially self-sufficient of the ten largest museums in Canada. This book is the most detailed case study of its kind and is indispensable for students and practitioners alike. It is also the most incisive published account of organizational change within a museum, in part because it is honest, open and reflexive. Janes is the first to bring perspectives drawn from complexity science into the discussion of organizational change in museums and he introduces the key concepts of complexity, uncertainty, nonlinearity, emergence, chaos and paradox. This revised and expanded third edition also includes new writing on strengthening museum management, as well as reflections on new opportunities and hazards for museums. It concludes with six ethical responsibilities for museum leaders and managers to consider. Janes provides pragmatic solutions grounded in a theoretical context, and highlights important issues in the management of museums that cannot be ignored.

Surely you’ve experienced something like this: you buy a red car, and suddenly red cars appear everywhere. Why? Because you’re focusing on red cars—and you get more of whatever you focus on. But much of the time, consciously and unconsciously, we dwell on what we don’t want, and that’s what we get. Drawing on the latest scientific research, Laura Goodrich shows you how to stop fixating on negatives and rewire your brain to focus on positive outcomes. Unique and practical exercises—including a free online toolkit—and dozens of enlightening real-life stories help you identify what you truly want so that it drives everything you do. And Goodrich shows how Seeing Red Cars can build organizational cultures in which employees are playing to their passions and strengths, focusing on what they want, and achieving breakthrough results.

THE NEXT BIG THING IN BUSINESS INNOVATION—FROM THE NEXT GENERATION’S BRAND WHISPERER What can an oil company (Pennzoil) learn from a great place to hang out (Starbucks) to create a new customer experience (Jiffy Lube)? If you’re a manager, an executive, or an entrepreneur, you understand that your business is unique, with its own challenges and rewards. But thanks to the new science of the Business Genome® process, you’ll be surprised to see how many businesses share a similar “genetic” structure. And by understanding what works and what doesn’t for your business’s genomic type, you can play to your strengths, adapt to your weaknesses, and change the course of your company’s future. Business Genome project creator Andrea Kates calls it Find Your Next—a field-tested, customized blueprint for mapping out your business DNA in four powerful steps: 1. Sort through your options and assess your hunches. 2. Match your genome to other successful business models. 3. Hybridize your company by grafting new ideas with proven successes. 4. Adapt and thrive by breaking old habits and starting new trends. This high-impact, transformative guide walks you through every step of the process, combining intuition and experience with statistical data and fascinating case studies. You’ll learn how two unrelated businesses—Hyatt Hotels and Sharp HealthCare—discovered untapped opportunities in their customer experience. You’ll read how General Motors and OnStar hit the jackpot by examining something that wasn’t there. You’ll find in-depth interviews with GE’s Mark Vachon, IndieGoGo’s Danae Ringelmann, P.F. Chang’s Rick Federico, and other leaders of innovation. And you’ll learn how to crack the genetic code behind the six essential building blocks of business—product and service innovation; customer impact; talent, leadership, and culture; process design; trendability; and secret sauce. Once you unlock the secret of your company’s DNA, you can evolve your strategy, build your future, and find your next. PRAISE FOR FIND YOUR NEXT “When you add it all up this is indeed a time of great change and arguably much of what we know about management today is becoming obviated. Which is why Find Your Next is such a helpful contribution to every manager’s arsenal. It embraces the shift from industrial models to models for the 21st century. And it’s a great read—packed with great stories and tons of practical advice. Read, enjoy and prosper.” Don Tapscott, from the Foreword of Find Your Next "Every great strategic thinker uses the ideas in this book... but it took Andrea Kates to write them down for the rest of us." Seth Godin, author of We Are All Weird ”Andrea Kates is this generation’s new ‘brand whisperer’ and Find Your Next is the best toolkit for landing on your company’s ‘next.’” Lane Cardwell, President, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro “Andrea Kates’s ideas about the Business Genome project are cutting edge. They will completely transform the way we think about the impact of cross-organizational connections as a way to fuel business growth.” James Fowler, author of Connected: The Surprising Power of Our Social Networks and How They Shape Our Lives, and Professor of Medical Genetics and Political Science/UC San Diego “Find Your Next combines radical thinking, innovative insight and real world experience to give corporate leaders a powerful compass in this era of unprecedented economic challenge.” Catherine Crier, former judge, journalist and New York Times bestselling author “Years ago I thought about what was next for music fans and turned to lessons learned from NASCAR and the NFL (not other musicians) to come up with the inspiration for the Lollapalooza festival. That’s exactly what Find Your Next provides—an easy-to-follow guide to game-changing innovation based on cross-industry thinking.” Perry Farrell, founder of Lollapalooza festival and legendary rock frontman for Jane’s Addiction "The difference between a great idea and a great business result is the ability to integrate insights from lots of different sources and get an entire organization on board quickly. Kates is onto something truly novel—Find Your Next could easily become the new industry standard for innovation. A must-read." Mark Vachon, GE Company Officer "If you thought you've been thinking creatively about your business, get ready for a new ride. In her book, Andrea Kates describes the Business Genome approach—a radically fresh roadmap to infuse innovative change into your business. Pure magic." Nick Pudar, Vice President Strategy & Business Development, OnStar “Andrea has a deep technical understanding based on years of global experience in innovation combined with a rare talent for communicating important issues very simply. The approach she describes in Find Your Next is so easy to grasp—you’ll see things differently and be able to lead your teams in refreshing new directions.” Herwig Maes, Director of Strategic Sourcing & Supplier Relationship Management, Johnson & Johnson “Find Your Next is the missing book on every business leader’s book shelf that fits right between Michael Porter and Malcolm Gladwell. It’s the playbook we’ve been wanting for hands-on innovation.” Emily Watkins, Sr. Vice President, Innovation & Product Development, Jones Lang LaSalle “What every business leader wants is tomorrow’s news, today. Find Your Next provides exactly that—a manifesto for innovators based on time-tested techniques. Mandatory reading.” Tom Stat, Executive Director, Edison Universe; Adjunct Lecturer, Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, McCormick School, Northwestern University; and independent innovation consultant “Find Your Next brings together a collection of insights and approaches that challenge everyone in an organization—from the CEO to the front line—to be nimble and build new muscles for rapid innovation. It disrupts the patterns of incremental growth from traditional strategic planning. The result is a process that can get your organization to market faster and leapfrog the competition.” Alistair Goodman, CEO, Placecast LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FIND YOUR NEXT / BUSINESS GENOME APPROACH: businessgenome.com

Over the next decade, today's connected world will be explosively more connected. Anything that can be distributed will be distributed: workforces, organizations, supply webs, and more. The tired practices of centralized organizations will become brittle in a future where authority is radically decentralized. Rigid hierarchies will give way to liquid structures. Most leaders—and most organizations—aren't ready for this future. Are you? It's too late to catch up, but it's a great time to leapfrog. Noted futurist Bob Johansen goes beyond skills and competencies to propose five new leadership literacies—combinations of disciplines, practices, and worldviews—that will be needed to thrive in a VUCA world of increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity. This book shows how to (1) forecast likely futures so you can “look back” and make sure you're prepared now for the changes to come, (2) use low-risk gaming spaces to work through your concerns about the future and hone your leadership skills, (3) lead shape-shifting organizations where you can't just tell people what to do, (4) be a dynamic presence even when you're not there in person, and (5) keep your personal energy high and transmit that energy throughout your organization. This visionary book provides a vivid description of the ideal talent profile for future leaders. It is written for current, rising star, and aspiring leaders; talent scouts searching for leaders; and executive coaches seeking a fresh view of how leaders will need to prepare. To get ready for this future, we will all need new leadership literacies.
