The Global Leadership Seminar is back with its second seminar on "Full Spectrum Thinking" with noted futurist Bob Johansen of The Institute for the Future.
In this video, Bob explains how Full-Spectrum Thinking provides leaders with the ability to seek clarity across gradients of possibility—while resisting the temptations of certainty. For example, medical doctors used to label people as “autistic.” Now, they say people are on the spectrum of autism disorders.
Full-spectrum thinking offers an alternative to sloppy categorical thinking that is so common today. It unlocks clarity while challenging certainty.
Bob Johansen is a distinguished fellow with the Institute for the Future in Silicon Valley. For more than 30 years, Bob has helped organizations around the world prepare for and shape the future, including corporations such as Nestle and GlaxoSmithKline, as well as major universities and nonprofits. He holds a B.S. from the University of Illinois, which he attended on a basketball scholarship, and a PhD from Northwestern University—as well as a master’s degree that focused on world religions.
The seminar was moderated by Prof. Vasanthi Srinivasan of IIM Bangalore. Prof. Srinivasan is a Professor in the Organizational Behaviour and HRM at IIMB. Her work over the last decade in the field of leadership development has focussed on building future-ready competencies.
Charles Assissi, veteran journalist, and co-founder of Founding Fuel, also joined to share his perspectives on Full Spectrum Thinking.
Please note: The seminar was organized by iSPIRT Foundation in association with NSRCEL of IIM Bangalore. This seminar series aims to bring the best of management wisdom to Indian companies and startups.
