The essential quality of a leader is the ability to choose the best path forward despite the uncertainty of the future.
Increasingly, that ability will be what differentiates leaders who succeed from those who fail. Good judgment requires not only the ability to anticipate what can be predicted, but also the ability to recognize what cannot—and the flexibility to adapt to whatever future does materialize.
Unfortunately, even the best leaders tend to get stuck in their mental models of how the world works, and when the world shifts around them, they often fail to adjust. They confuse their map for the territory, and the results can be devastating.
Event Horizon is committed to the proposition that leaders can avoid this mistake through the use of strategic foresight—the ability to sense, shape, and adapt to the future as it emerges.
We work with clients to identify, coordinate, and implement a strategic foresight program that best suits their needs and resources so that they can navigate the rapidly changing present while preparing for a highly uncertain future.
