What struck me was how Marks career has transitioned from finance and mechanistic thinking to a more wholistic and energetic focused mindset. This is theme is present throughout this dialogue. Another theme we touch on is the importance of leadership authenticity and the ability of leaders to create a sense of safety.  Within a climate of uncertainty complexity and exponential change…leaders will get things wrong and they will fail to achieve their initial vision and the the vision might change…and that is ok. But they also need to create a safe space for others to fail in the process.  And this requires leadership to have the courage to relinquishing  control over the future vision and allow a collaborative vision to emerge.   If you are interested in exploring the role of psychological safety in change, The power of “I don’t know”, how to create collaborative visions of the future, authentic listening and positive authenticity, the importance of developing self discernment in a information world, the power of flexible work environments and why experts and leaders need to share their thought process to get buy-in…then this episode is for you. Let’s listen.

You can find out more about Matt’s work at boldecho.comAbout This EpisodeJacob interviewed 140 CEO’s from around the world for his new book and he asked them what they thought are the core skills of a future leader. And the top skill that current leaders think future leaders need to be successful is the capability and capacity to be a futurist. This was interesting to me because it is relevant to this podcast and relevant to the mission of our company HA:KU global, to develop more future intelligent leadership.     I have been working in the futures, innovation and strategic foresight space for the past 4 years and I know there is still a lot of work that needs to be done to up-skill leadership and organizations to be more prepared for the future. We are all naturally futurist…it is one of the superpowers of the human brain to be able to consciously think about plans and scenarios in the future. We utilize this skill all the time when we think about our personal life, career, health, purpose…but for some reason when we enter the business space we tend to put our head down and work, and fall prey to quarterly goals and short-termism. Even leaders do this.  At the same time, studies show that future-focused, or future-fit. organizations have higher profitability, growth and employee engagement. It begs the question, why haven’t more leaders invested in scaling future intelligences across the organization?   I think you will find some answers in this dialogue. In today’s episode we discuss how to stay relevant as a leader,  how to communicate your leadership message in a rapidly changing business landscape, the difference between amateur and pro futurists, how storytelling can make others a part of your future vision, the importance of being transparent with your values, and why leadership should be optimistic about the future. Let’s listen.

By random chance they meet again on the flowcast. Both Sohail and Elina have been in the Professional foresight field for many years.

It helps to remind us that philosophical thought is often at the root of scientific theory and research. In the dialogue we discuss the Cognitive bases of leader, Participatory leadership and how that also correlates with human cell biology, the importance of the three vistas of capability in the future, How an embodied and embedded brain impacts decision making, Why the ooda loop is really the doodac loop, How our biology is expressed through relationships and responds through psychology, Why mitochondria is important for understanding leadership function and biological energetics, Why understanding causation and disposition are required to complete the story of science, and finally, how initial conditions shape a system and how that impacts the context of leadership. Lets listenfind out more at

We discuss how to build momentum towards the future within a context of uncertainty and complexity, by taking one day at a time. How to build values into the story of the future. Why we should re-examine the identity of leadership outside the constraints of influence and power. Why current leaders might need to give up their seat, or pass the mic to those who have not had a place or a voice in the future. And also the challenges of having the courage to give up your seat.
