Summary of Future Strong
How to Work Unleashed, Lead Boldly, and Live Life Your Way
A strong future for you and your company hinges on knowing the significance of today’s choices.
As they face an increasingly chaotic, technologically driven future, too many leaders let risk aversion determine their decisions. Change consultant Bill Jensen argues for rejecting behaviors that limit your individual and organizational capacity for innovation. He says you can make five choices to build a stronger tomorrow: the choice to understand and use your past; the choice to pursue a goal or passion; the choice to be humble and vulnerable as you embrace uncharted possibilities; the choice to select challenges and sacrifices wisely; and the choice to form reciprocal relationships To counteract a certain poetic vagueness, Jensen illuminates each choice with case studies and practical examples. getAbstract recommends his counsel to those interested in management trends and personal potential. Jensen explains why the strong future you and your firm can achieve hinges on understanding the past and making the right choices in the present.
