Lessons in Leadership From a Global Futurist

Internationally acclaimed futurist and best-selling author will lead a three-day experiential leadership seminar in Montana this month, as well as speak at events in South Carolina, Michigan and Massachusetts

Futurist Jack Uldrich

After speaking at 26 events in the last two months, Futurist Jack Uldrich will be heading to Montana for his "Into the Unknown" leadership seminar, beginning June 6 in Great Falls. 

Uldrich, the author of "Into the Unknown: Leadership Lessons from Lewis & Clark’s Daring Westward Expedition," and Minneapolis-based businessman Jeff Appelquist have been partnering for eight years to take business leaders on expeditions based upon Lewis and Clark's historic adventures.

Thinking like a futurist involves appreciating how the world of tomorrow is changing. Far too often companies are fixated on issues that are front and center or, at times, they are stuck dealing with issues from the past. They aren't taking time out to reflect on what the future will hold in store.

Uldrich says: "Thinking like a futurist involves appreciating how the world of tomorrow is changing. Far too often companies are fixated on issues that are front and center or, at times, they are stuck dealing with issues from the past. They aren't taking time out to reflect on what the future will hold in store." 

Uldrich's point and the point of the three-day adventure he will embark on with leaders is this: "Many, if not most, people think that 'tomorrow will be pretty much like yesterday.'"

"From now on," Uldrich says, "Tomorrow is going to be radically different than either yesterday or today. We need more leaders with the courage of Lewis and Clark. Leaders who are willing to unlearn their old ways and chart brave new courses into the unknown."

He continues, "The work I do is all about helping organizations prepare for the coming technological changes so that they can effectively navigate and determine the course of their future." When it comes to future-proofing, he says the first thing organizations need to do is to acknowledge that the future will be different — perhaps radically different — than the present.

Uldrich's other events this month include sharing his insights on the future of recreation, future trends in architecture and the future of education. 

Uldrich's June events include: 

June 6: Future Trends in Recreation - Private Client -  Hilton Head, South Carolina

June 28: Future Trends in Architecture - National Council of Architectural Registration Boards - Detroit, Michigan

June 29: Future Trends in Education - Graduate Management Admission Council - Boston, Massachusetts

Internationally recognized for his engaging presentations and his insights on the potential impacts of emerging technology, Uldrich speaks over 100 times each year and has presented his message to global leaders on five continents. His client list includes the National Association of Manufacturers, Verizon, IBM, Cisco, American Public Power Association, Siemens, Eaton, the European Association for International Education and Thrivent.
