Uncertainty is here to say; Business Resiliency is Essential.  2020 has seen significant disruptions to the way businesses run their day-to-day operations, leading to the creation of unique new challenges. One thing we have learnt from businesses who crossed the resilience chasm, is they often emerged far stronger –by embracing change not just once, but again and again.  Lego, Apple, Disney, and Amazon all have previously used setbacks as lessons for innovation, reinvention and disruption.

Only future-ready leaders will be able to effectively manage emergent grand challenges. These leaders will need to be ‘ambidextrous’. That means they will need to be able to both take risks to explore new opportunities for breakthrough innovations, and also preserve and incrementally develop the systems and structures that will support sustainable growth.

The tension between these competing needs can either tear individuals, teams and organisations apart – or if managed well they can provide the dynamic that fuels sustainable development.

In this session, participants will learn how it is possible to navigate the key paradoxical challenges that can either frustrate or fuel innovation. They learn how to develop a sustainable purpose-driven innovation culture to change the game for purpose-driven innovation.

By exploring their own individual unique Innovation Change Leadership profiles (iCLi), participants learn how leaders can become ‘ambidextrous’ to deal with the complexities and challenges of constant change. They are introduced to the ‘Dynamic Polar Positioning (PoP)’ tool for strategic development.


- Identify the qualities needed for future-ready leadership, including ambidextrous leadership

- Understand the paradox at the core of ‘ambidextrous innovation leadership’

- Identify individual and team strengths and challenges through the Innovation Change Leadership (iCLi) profile

- Negotiate the 4 key innovation culture paradox dimension pairings

- Use the Dynamic Polar Positioning (PoP) tool to create a sustainable strategic plan

This summer Hello Future hosted a virtual summer camp for US teens and Syrian refugee youth. The camp was designed for the youth to meet their peers across the world and learn from one another. By all measures, the camp was a great success. We even made a little short film together. 

What we didn't expect was to see the same developmental challenges from both groups. These teens, in their rush to grow up, have lost their sense of play and imagination. On the surface, it makes sense to trade flights of fancy for facts and logic as we grow older. Except the loss has deep societal implications touching every area of our lives. When these kids lose their sense of imagination, they are unable to dream audacious dreams --- those seemingly impossible dreams that major human achievements are founded on. 

The next generation instead is weighed down and traffic in incremental changes. The times have passed for incremental changes for the future of our collective wellbeing. For us to survive we need to urgently fuel our children's imagination.
