Each era contains both its unique characteristics and a certain timelessness. The first part of the lecture “Metaskills (of leaders) in a time of rapid change” will deal with what makes today’s times unique. The combination of a chaotic environment around us, permanent changes, the rise of artificial intelligence and widening generational differences are just some examples that characterize it.
In the second part of the lecture, I will focus on metaskills in the present era, which is characterized as a time of ever-accelerating change. In my view, the key metaskills selected include the ability to unlearn and relearn, as well as another way of working with the future – called backcasting. In this lecture I will give specific examples from practice and from my own experience. I will also outline how the main new metaskills can be learned.
