Surfing the TIDES of Change – part 1

Posted on: February 7th, 2014 by admin-kablooey No Comments

An introduction to a three part series looking at harnessing the power of the TIDES of change.  The video considers the parallels with surfing and how we can use the surfing analogy and metaphor to “Surf the TIDES of Change”.

When we are confronted by ocean tides we can be overwhelmed by them, like a tsunami, or we can harness them like a surfer.  Understanding the changes coming as a result of the TIDES [Technology, Institutional, Demographics, Environment & Ethics, Social values] is only the first part.  Once we know what is coming we need to response and position ourselves for action.

The brief introductory video will set the scene for the two more that will follow.  Once we are ready to Surf the TIDES of Change we need to understand the external factors that influence surfing, and also the internal factors that make a good surfer.
