Fueling the Soul: Futurist Jack Uldrich to Join Guatam Jain, Chris Farrell and Others at WPO 2016 Soul Fuel
Trend expert Jack Uldrich will join other high profile speakers at the World Presidents Organization's Soul Fuel Conference in Sedona, AZ., September 14-18.
Phoenix, AZ, September 14, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Phoenix, AZ, September 13, 2016 (Newswire) - “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them..." The Chinese Philosopher Lao Tzu gave this advice to his followers in the 6th Century B.C.
Futurist Jack Uldrich often quotes Lao Tzu in his keynotes addresses, and this week at the World President's Association's Soul Fuel in Sedona, AZ., will be no exception. On September 15 Uldrich will deliver his latest keynote: "The Wisdom of Unlearning."
Uldrich is frequently asked, “What will the future look like?” His response is, “Predictably unpredictable.” How can one prepare for the unpredictable? The answer may come as a surprise. Uldrich, like Lao Tzu, says, "the key is embracing paradox."
People are often seeking an 'Aha Moment.' One way to think about that is in terms of "The Big AHA." AHA, in this case, stands for Awareness, Humility, Action. Everyone striving to be a strong leader has the power to apply it, and once they do it awakens a powerful sense of knowing even in the face of uncertainty.
Uldrich goes on to qualify his response by adding, "Learning to unlearn, thinking about the unthinkable, recognizing failure as a key component of success, and understanding that an awareness of one’s ignorance is an essential element of true wisdom."
The School of Unlearning, founded by Uldrich in 2004 is an international leadership, change management, and technology consultancy dedicated to helping businesses, governments, and non-profit organizations prepare for and profit from periods of profound transformation.
Could his work be characterized as Taoist in nature? In a word, yes. Uldrich most often sites Lao Tzu's quote: “To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.”
"If people strive to rid themselves of obsolete knowledge, ineffective habits, and old mindsets, in other words, unlearn things," Uldrich says, "there is a great opening for true wisdom to settle in."
He continues, "People are often seeking an 'Aha Moment.' One way to think about that is that AHA stands for Awareness, Humility, Action. Everyone striving to be a strong leader has the power to apply it, and once they do it awakens a powerful sense of knowing even in the face of uncertainty. And that is those are cornerstones to the wisdom of unlearning.
