Turn and face the strange, changes.
Oh look out you rock 'n' rollers, pretty soon now you're gonna get older.
Time may change me, but I can't trace time.

Developing Mastery in a Digital Age.

We live in a world that increasingly requires what psychologist Howard Gardner calls searchlight intelligence. That is, the ability to connect the dots between people and ideas, where others see no possible connection.

An informed perspective is more important than ever in order to anticipate what comes next and succeed in actualizing emerging futures.

To find their way in societal shifts, leaders cannot rely on old maps to guide them. Reinvention and relevance in the 21st century instead draws on our ability to adjust our way of thinking, learning, doing and being.

Photographer, filmmaker and artist Yann Arthus-Bertrand is one of the few people I'd quit what I'm doing to work with.

In this new documentary, Human, he asks:

What is it that makes us human? Is it that we love, that we fight? That we laugh? Cry? Our curiosity? The quest for discovery?

Driven by these questions, Yann Arthus-Bertrand spent three years collecting real-life stories from 2,000 women and men in 60 countries.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert
Psychologists and behavioral scientists are looking more closely at ambiversion — a personality type that can adapt to social or solitary environments.

Check out the Reimagining Work Podcast on iTunes. The podcast is the brainchild of +John Wenger and +Rogier Noort.   
We talk with Kenneth Mikkelsen and Anners Abild about why is learning important, and how did we get it wrong by doing so much theory without integration?

As we attempt to transition into a networked creative economy, we need leaders who promote learning and who master fast, relevant, and autonomous learning themselves.

Introduction
I am dedicated to improving the quality of leadership in the 21st century by influencing how leaders think, learn, behave and impact society. 

I help leaders rethink, redefine and reshape their organizations and better prepare themselves for new futures. 

I believe that clarity, mastery, creativity, relevance and agility are essential to grow responsive and purpose driven organizations that are capable of adapting to the major shifts happening in society. 

I live in more than one world. This qualifies me to wear different hats as a thinker, leadership advisor, speaker, learning strategist, writer and curator. My careers are linked by curiosity and a passion for people and ideas that can't be confined in boxes. What drives me is pattern recognition, combinatorial creativity, cross-pollination and integrative thinking.

On Twitter people list me in groups like: Visionaries, New Era Leaders, Master Minds, Foresighters, Strategy and Innovation, Future of Work, Leadership Development, Game Changing People, and my favorite: "Twitters who talk about things that interests me." 

My previous work has featured in esteemed media like Harvard Business Review, Financial Times, The Economist, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, BBC, Forbes, Management Today, The Sunday Times, The Globe and Mail, Developing Leaders, Global Focus, China Economic Review, Personnel Today, Emerald Insight, Training and Development, Strategic Direction, The National, La Depeche, Management Issues, and all major Scandinavian media outlets. 

Currently I am working on a book, with Richard Martin, exploring the importance of generalism in the modern organization.
