From Chris Devore
“futurist” at Intel.
Johnson had interesting things to say about both the process of “futurecasting” and a few of his specific predictions, but the idea that stuck with me was his closer (I took a photo of the slide to make sure I got it right):
Q: How do we change the future?
A: Change the story people tell themselves about the future they will live in.
This deceptively simple statement captures a fundamental truth about leadership — whether as a parent, as a manager, or as a community advocate:
Consistent, positive actions spring from a coherent sense of identity — a self-reinforcing set of internal narratives about how people like this behave in circumstances like that.
