Futures Thinking, Learning, and Leading: Applying Multiple Intelligences to Success and Innovation explores the extent to which our thinking, learning, and leading are influenced and shaped by the future. In the process, professionals and organizations are classified into three basic types: future-oriented, future-poised, and future-driven. The last group typically includes divergent and convergent thinking and planning and routinely integrates, rather than separates, thinking, learning, and leading. The net results are the new norms of anticipatory management, holistic 360-degree forecasting and planning, and the productivity of innovation. Finally, leading has to epitomize the whole_it must be alive to the future and understand and incorporate into decision making how the future itself thinks, behaves, and learns. Buchen provides: _ a comprehensive survey of contemporary work environments _ an evaluation of their future learning and unlearning training systems _ a series of recommendations for developing a future-driven organization and workforce Also, Futures Thinking, Learning, and Leading identifies innovation strategies and the major new thinking systems, describes the steep learning and leading curves of the 21st century, and explores transition training. This book is suitable for business leaders and managers, human resource professionals, personnel recruiters, professional trainers and coaches, and colleges and professors of business.
