CHICAGO, IL, September 21, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — In the face of the pandemic, not even A-list award-winning law firms are immune to the rampant and fast-paced changes taking place.
How to address the uncertain future?
One such firm is engaging global futurist and best selling author Jack Uldrich to speak with their management team across their global offices and help them navigate the seismic shifts.
On September 22, Jack Uldrich will speak to this prestigious firm’s management team on his forthcoming book, Business as Unusual.
“Unusual times,” says Uldrich, “call for understanding and unlearning.”
As the founder of The School of Unlearning, Uldrich will lean into the principles he feels are cornerstones of this concept. He says it’s about mindset. For him, it’s a Big AHA–an acronym that stands for Awareness, Humility, and Action.
“Awareness doesn’t just center around being aware of the problems; it goes much deeper,” says Uldrich. “It’s about being self-aware. What and how are you personally contributing to the organizations as well as your well being? The amount of stress we are under is scary, and the actions we take right now will reverberate for months and years to come. The more conscious we can be of our behavior toward our coworkers and clients will be game-changing. “
He believes humility is also of the essence. “You can’t learn what you already know, so staying open to what you don’t know is crucial–having an open heart is going to change the world fundamentally.”
Lastly, he concludes, the management team will need to take action. His suggestions: asking better questions, ‘coaching up’ curiosity in the workplace, taking time out to ideate and think, and actively imagining things getting better.
As a futurist, Uldrich remains hopeful that business leaders can and will make a change for the better.
He says he welcomes the opportunity to talk with such a prestigious group. He will join them again in December to discuss his other book due out in 2021, which focuses on the ‘great reset.’
