The Future-Fit Organisation

Graeme Codrington and Keith Coats discuss the difference between strategy and culture, and why culture is way more important for leaders to focus on if they want to ensure their organisations keep pace with the changing world they operate in. They talk about The Circle of Courage, a model that has been taken from Native American culture and now applied to modern organisations, as a framework to help leaders build future-fit organisations, support the development of high-performing people and grow healthy communities.

Three Unusual Book Reviews

Ray de Villiers talks about science fiction books, and why he reads them. He reviews his latest read, “The Red Queen” by Jeb Kinnison.

Your host Graeme Codrington brings you the latest Tomorrow Trends podcast.

In this episode, Keith Coats, co-founder of TomorrowToday Global and international leadership development expert reviews one of his best reads of 2015, “Uncommon Sense: Common Nonsense”. A great title, and an even better book that calls nonsense on some of the “received wisdom” we use in our businesses every day.

Episode 1 – The New Lemonade Stand, Digital Natives & Invitational Leadership

Do you bring out the best in others as a leader? ‘Invitational Leadership’ is a leadership model perfect for the turbulent times we live in. It assumes there is a best in everyone, and that everyone has a valid contribution to make. As a leader – are you creating an environment that invites the best out of everyone? Are you engaging with the Digital Natives in your workplace by understanding the VUCA world they grew up in. Do you consider their voice in the workplace as much as parents considered their voices growing up!

Speaking of the voice of Digital Natives… have you considered that YouTube could be the new lemonade stand? That’s right… kids, yes, kids, are making good money from YouTube… So if an 8 and 5 year old earning over $100 000 a month sounds crazy to you, perhaps you need to listen a little further. Not just because it’s fascinating, but more importantly, to consider the impact this has on your businesses and as parents, the career choices your kids are making.
