Overview

Diversity of Thought has emerged to be the game changer in today’s world and as a futuristic leader, it becomes important to understand its relevance and application in times to come.

VUCA world continues to challenge us with lot of unpredictability about future and multitude of issues such as rapid rate of change in political, social, economic factors that impact decision making. Coupled with this, emergence of nouveau technologies such as automation, robotics and artificial intelligence has also brought about a paradigm shift in the way of life globally.

The resulting impact of shift in the definition of work combined with the expectations of diverse groups and customers is pushing organizations to revisit their business strategy, people policies, practices and processes. The organizations that are able to understand these dynamic nuances and are able to tackle diversity with its differences will become hub of creativity and innovation.

Business leaders can no longer be expected to predict the next industry disruption, however, a good leadership can future proof business by driving an inclusive, agile and a diverse workforce through a culture that fosters relationships and ability to work across differences.
