How to Think Like a Futurist
How do we prepare ourselves for "unthinkable" change? How do we ready our teams and organizations for "unimaginable" future events? Find out in this interactive session with New York Times bestselling author and Institute for the Future research director, Jane McGonigal. You'll learn a new framework for cultivating "urgent optimism" in the face of uncertainty. You'll practice a powerful technique called "The First 5 Minutes of the Future" that combines neuroscience interventions with game psychology. And you'll take away a practical tool to help others fight "normalcy bias", and think more creatively and effectively in the face of dynamic global events.
