The Future is Now 

Exploring the Plausible, Possible and Preferable Futures ...

Why Plan for the Future?

VUCA . Adaptive . Agile . Disruption . Transformation . Dynamic . Infinite . Time Horizons . Change

Everywhere we look there is overwhelming evidence that many organisations have not altered or changed the development  of their strategy and/or are readying themselves proactively for the changes that come with the landscape of the complex adaptive world we live in.

  Pro-active planning, systems thinking, interconnections and interdependence, are just some of the phrases that come to mind which are very often overlooked in the transformation of organisations.   

We have to plan for the future in a way that makes place for everyone to benefit and be given opportunities to succeed if we are to live in a world that is at peace, one that will continue to become stronger, long after we are gone. 

"No matter how successful we are in life, when we die, none of us will be declared the winner of life.” Simon Senek

Many of our systems, such as education, business, government, are out-dated and are struggling to keep up with the rapid changes of the 21st century and beyond.  

What is required is a future's thinking mindset, one that takes into consideration all the relevant interconnected systems to include, yet not limited to, the Social, Technological, Economical, Environmental, and Political Spheres.

The decisions we make about our lives and the environment have unintended consequences creating impact long after we are gone. Dysfunction breeds more dysfunction and no one is immune from the resulting consequences. They indirectly affect us all.

“When I discovered this concept of finite and infinite games, I realised that I wasn’t the one who didn’t understand how business works, they [business leaders] are the ones who don’t understand how business works.”   Simon Senek

Becoming intentional about the Future, our infinite impact, and how we play the game of life, is where employing the services of a Futurist begins.

Testimonials

Hear from Our Clients

I read a book called ‘Great Leaders ask Great Questions’ and that is what Sam McDonald does. In fact the right questions that start and spark the thinking process, because any answers we ever want, lay deep within us, and Sam knows how to lead you within yourself for that answer.


Before I met Sam, I had a perception of myself that I was ‘weird’ or too hardworking. Sam, however, could see my Strengths just by speaking to me, and besides highlighting some of them, she pointed out how working in our non-Strengths, we are effectively wasting our talents. Thereafter, I had a desire to pin-point and develop my Strengths.


I worked with Sam to unlock the potential of my Strengths, as well as gain an understanding of who I was, not by looking at my weakness, though we did spend some time here, but by understanding that I will grow exponentially by focusing on my Strengths and asking others to pick up where i’m not strong. 


The results after working with Sam was improved Leadership, Communication and a better way of seeing people for who they are based on their Strengths and working on that. I now set more goals, have improved focus, and ‘delegate’ my weaknesses. I also celebrate my successes more.


What I would have loved, if I had the resources, was to have taken one of Sam’s Coaching Packages so I had a plan to focus on and work towards. This would have helped with an implementation plan and goals to work on my situation.


Before meeting Sam everyone made me believe I wanted too much out of life and therefore, I was kind of crazy in their eyes. But unlocking the potential of my Strengths has made me realise this is how I was created by God. I am born to do great things.
