We are sharing with you this new post writed by our speaker Peter Fisk:
“How do we create a better business, and a better future?
Creating this better future requires change in how we think and behave, the way in which you design, manage and lead your business. The mindset shifts are profound, requiring leaders to let go of old behaviours and beliefs, and to embrace new paradigms and possibilities.
There are 7 shifts to the future:
Aurora … Recode your future … from profit machine to enlightened progress
Komorebi … Recode your growth … from uncertain survival to futuristic growth
Transcendent … Recode your market … from marginal competition to market creating
Ingenuity … Recode your innovation … From technology obsession to human ingenuity
Ubuntu … Recode your organisation … From passive hierarchies to dynamic ecosystems
Syzygy … Recode your transformation … From incremental change to sustained transformation
Awestruck … Recode your leadership … From good managers to extraordinary leaders
Together these 7 shifts begin to shape a better future for your business, delivered through the 49 codes.
Shift 1 … Aurora … Recode your future
How will you reinvent your business for a better future?
From profit machine to enlightened progress
Aurora is the Latin word for dawn, originating from the ancient Roman goddess of the dawn. In meteorology it describes the luminous bands that occasionally form in the upper atmosphere when charged solar particles align with the Earth’s magnetic field.
Consider the stretching aspirations of these companies:
Adidas, the global sports brand, believes that “through sport we have the power to change lives.”
Bulletproof which creates innovative foods, including great coffee, exists “to help people perform better, think faster, and live better.”
Google seeks “to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”
IKEA rises above its flat-packed creations to say it is here “to create a better everyday life for the many people.”
Nike wants “to bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete in the world” and notes that “if you have a body, you are an athlete.”
Shopify seeks to “make commerce better for everyone, so businesses can focus on what they do best: building and selling their products.”
Tesla for all its focus on fast and stylish cars, has a more worthy aim, “to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.”
Whole Foods wants “to co-create a world where each of us, our communities and our planet can flourish” adding “with great courage, integrity and love”.
How will you recode your future?
Look forwards not back … What’s your future potential?
Find your inspiring purpose … Why does your business exist?
Have a better vision … What’s your future story?
Creating positive impact … How do you measure success?
Be farsighted … How much time do spend on the future? (…)”
