The answer is Anticipation: the ability to foresee growing problems, disruptions, customer needs and game-changing opportunities. In today’s business environment, the only constant variable is “change.” Leaders who learn how to use what we call HARD TRENDS to predict problems and disruptive change before they happen—have the confidence to act on the amazing opportunities digital transformation provides—and, have the biggest advantage in tomorrow’s market.
The Anticipatory Leader System is an award-winning training process for individual leaders to develop the skills to accurately foresee and take critical actions before disruption strikes.
The Anticipatory Leader System is a revolutionary process that uses short videos, rapid application activities, and collaborative discussion to teach you how to go beyond Agility (reacting quickly after a problem or disruption occurs) by learning to Anticipate using Hard Trends to elevate your business and personal strategies and migrate your teams to the mindset of Anticipation that transforms results. Developing the competency of Anticipation is a powerful competency for both individuals and organizations who have adopted other process improvement methods like Agile, Lean, Six Sigma and others. The program focuses on four key areas of development:
"Daniel Burrus’ Anticipatory Leader course is one of the best courses I’ve ever taken. This course takes you into the concept of future thinking and reminds you of the theory behind the anticipatory organization. More importantly it provides you with a framework in which to identify the Hard Trends and Soft Trends that will impact your industry and provide you with insights on how to become a disruptor and not one of the disrupted. If you’re looking to take a course that will provide you foresight and future thinking techniques this course will provide you with all of that and more. I highly recommend taking this course and listening or reading his book The Anticipatory Organization."
