Thinking the Unthinkable in Leadership and Business Models

Join the Conversation with the Experts!

“It is time to think the unthinkable”

– Emmanuel Macron (Financial Times, 17.04.2020)

From speaking with hundreds of global leaders, Nik Gowing and Chris Langdon, authors of the book “Thinking the Unthinkable”, have seen patterns which most haven’t. And their message is clear. Leaders are anxious. They know there is a need for a different kind of leadership. They need to break free from conformity, then start thinking the unthinkable in handling radical and disruptive changes. And business models must be transformed to accomodate for that. This is all the more essential as we address the COVID-19 crisis and its massive economic fallout, as well as the even bigger parallel challenges of sustainability and the climate emergency.

Together with Nik Gowing and Chris Langdon, Dreams and Details Academy will host a free workshop on Wednesday, June 3rd, at 10.00 am CEST on thinking the unthinkable in leadership and business models.

Thinking the Unthinkable to adapt, survive and ultimately thrive

Drawing on years of research, Nik Gowing and Chris Langdon have developed a framework for understanding, embracing, and handling the unthinkable. 

With this workshop, we want to help empower you as a leader to take the risks and bold actions necessary. This will help you not only survive the crisis, but to actively create a better future. We aim to equip you with  some tools to identify, overcome and thrive on disruptive challenges.
