Episode 32 – Peter Holliday
In this episode I chat to Peter Holliday – a self confessed futurist – about why it’s important to consider the impact of future trends on organisations and leadership.
Pete is an Organisational Futurist and Business Agility expert who helps to solve long-standing organisational challenges, empowering staff and developing progressive and agile mindsets.
So what does it mean to be a future-focused organisation? Essentially, it comes down to being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to navigating disruption. We chat about future trends, how to build leaders who are fit for the future, upgrading organisational systems and the fine balance between the organisation’s values and what the market actually cares about.
We also touch on the six traits of progressive organisations and getting back to the human element in the work environment.
Key highlights on this episode include:
We need to blend values set by leaders at the top level AND the lower levels of an organisation
When dealing with rapid change or disruption in an industry, businesses must review what they do, then recombine or re-organise it in a different way to create more value for the market
Why coherence, cohesion and coordination are key aspects of future fit teams.
