Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity: Leadership Strategies and Insight for the Post Pandemic World
History has taught us that only 10% of organizations become breakthrough performers during a period of economic challenge. What will you do to be part of this elite group of aggressive survivors?
Futurist Jim Carroll has carefully studied the strategies they pursue, the concepts that drive them, and the actions they take to become a success in this complex new world.
It’s timely and critical insight! Recovery oriented CEO’s and senior executives understand that in addition to managing existing challenges, right now is the time to focus on strategies that align to our complex new reality in order to achieve growth and pursue opportunity. They know that they need to act quickly to establish an innovative mindset with their team in oder to get there quickly.
In this interactive keynote, Jim provides his unique insight on staying ahead in volatile times. A culture that has everyone thinking about what can be done going forward rather than looking back. A solutions oriented mindset in which people are thinking less about the problems that have occurred, and more about the innovative strategies that could be pursued. A leadership style and mindset that takes on volatility as a form of innovation oxygen, complexity as a foundation for action, uncertainty as the platform for disruption and ambiguity as the clarity for stifling aggressive indecision.
Now What? Reinvention and the Role of Optimism in Our Post-Covid World
Reinvention surrounds us.
It is inherent to our future, fundamental to our success, and a pathway to our action. In this fast-moving, inspirational, and powerful keynote, futurist Jim Carroll takes a look at the concept of ‘reinvention’ from a personal, business, and societal perspective.
What is the essence of the mindset of those who have successfully reinvented? What are the key concepts that leaders need to think about to align their organizations to the reality of a vastly different future – and act upon it? How have nations aligned to the idea of ‘doing what’s next’ rather than ‘doing what has already been done’ in order to enhance their opportunity in the next economy?
Reinvention comes in different attitudes, strategies, disruptive thinking, and actions.
In this powerful keynote, Jim outlines the opportunities of reinvention; lessons from world leaders, both personal and corporate who have achieved it, the lessons we can learn from them – and specific strategies to redefine and reinvent your own future.
Based upon the ongoing research for his new book of the same name, Jim Carroll provides a powerful pathway into the future, the mindset necessary to get there, and the bold actions that must be pursued!

Our World in 2030: The Post-Pandemic Trends That Redefine Your Future
Years from now, we will look back and realize that many industries, technologies, concepts and disruptive ideas accelerated throughout the crisis of 2020 – because they played a major role in the rebuilding of our dramatically different future. We will also know that by carefully analyzing the trends of yesterday in the context of fast moving events that we were best able to understand these new trends of tomorrow.
Futurist Jim Carroll examines your world and industry in the microscope of a new lens, providing critical insight to the trends that matter – and that redefine our future. The acceleration of trends like 3D printing and biomaterial science, robots & cobots, genetic medicine and virtualized community care, resiliency-oriented supply chains and last mile logistics technology, delivery drones and personal space heat tracking – all of which are playing a role in our eventual post-pandemic, recovery oriented world. In this new future, business models continue to evolve but at a faster pace; new revenue opportunities are emerging at hyper-speed as entirely new products are invented and new industries are born to deal with the crisis; entire industries are forever changed as the new era of “personal space” and “economic distancing” came to define all forms of human interaction going forward.
It is in this context that the big ideas are being explored, the bold are defining their future, and the fast are aligning to acceleration. Covid-19 and the economic downturn of 2020 have redefined our future – but it is by understanding this new future and aligning to the opportunities that it presents that breakthrough performers discover their opportunities!
Bridging the Acceleration Gap: Achieving Growth By Aligning to The Trends of Our Post-Pandemic Future
Are you structured for slow in a fast world? The global pandemic has changed the axis of our universe. What was disruptive before is now massively transformative.
Do you have a strategy to keep up?
History tells us that every global crisis shifts the axis of the future of our universe, and every crisis offers an opportunity to improve. In the harsh reality of our post-pandemic world, leadership strategies that worked yesterday are exposed as being irrelevant tomorrow even while they are being actively considered today.
Pre-pandemic, CEOs and organizations were dealing with a world of business model disruption, the acceleration of technology, the faster evolution of key skills, and other critical issues. Now, in the harsh light of our new world, one thing is clear – the future is even more complex than it was before. And a simple fact has emerged – there is a massive and growing gap between the speed of change and the ability of organizations to keep up. Bridging this gap is critical to future success – and the significance of your inability to bridge the gap is even bigger than it was before.
Bridge the gap! What worked yesterday will not work tomorrow! You are on a guaranteed path to failure if you don’t align with our new reality – by mastering the disconnect between speed and structure. The acceleration gap is very real, and it’s growing larger all the time. Successful organizations will be those who can shrink the gap, minimize its impact, and turn it into an opportunity rather than a threat.
