Creating a Cohesive Vision for the 21st Century

In our information heavy environment it has become virtually impossible for organizations to create a cohesive vision for the future. It is difficult enough for individuals, let alone organizations, to clearly state where they see themselves in 10 years. Creating a cohesive vision for the 21st century begins by asking the right questions in the right context.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Clearly identify and address areas where the desire for consensus is stifling a truly cohesive organization.
  • Build constructive and effective models for motivating 21st-century team members.
  • Apply practical steps to foster an environment of open innovation.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Leverage the skills, talents, and intellectual capital of all members in your organization to tackle the challenges you are facing.
  • Create new organizational models that foster creative and effective problem-solving within your company.

The Future of Tourism: It’s not where you think

The end of the industrial age workforce presents major obstacles and cutting edge opportunities in tourism.

In this session you will learn to:

  • Identify emerging trends and issues that are shaping the future of tourism.
  • Create plausible narratives about how tourism will evolve as an industry.
  • Construct new business models for accelerating preferred futures in the tourist industry over the next 10 to 25 years.

Leading the 21st Century: breakthrough strategies to ensure long-term success

How to transform your organization, gain competitive market advantage, attract and retain top-level employees, and create breakthrough strategies to ensure the long-term viability of your company.

What do strategic leaders do that others do not?

  • They seize new opportunities by identifying patterns in emerging trends and issues both inside and outside their industry.
  • They challenge industry norms and baseline assumptions about the future.

  • They approach strategy as an adaptive process that is in tune with changes in the external environment.
