“Futurists don’t have secret powers to predict the future… [r]ather, futurists discipline themselves to question the status quo. They regularly scan external trends, adjacent industries and underlying forces. They consider diverse perspectives. And they boldly tell stories about the future before all of the data is available to back it up.”

The future is hard enough to predict under normal circumstances, but it’ll be harder to plan ahead post-coronavirus, especially with the new normal fast approaching. Incorporating the skills of a futurist can aide leaders in managing their organizations through the crisis and into the new normal. For Lisa Kay Solomon the futurist should not be undervalued, because they use “disciplined methods of strategic foresight [to] systematically scan, analyze, probe and project the future beyond what we intuitively think might be possible.” These methods emulate what Ignite’s Innovation Restart Stream (INNO/X) strives for: operationalizing and practicing innovation daily. Be the futurist leader your organizations needs, especially in such trying times.
