Welcoming the future with no worries
Tanja Future me
In school, they told us about history but nobody told us how to handle the future. My mission with TanjaFutureME is to introduce professionals and organisations to the concepts of a Futures Mindset so they can learn how to dance with the uncertainty of the future.
The future is a very uncertain, complex place. So why would we send your team and company on this journey without any training or certain future skills? Dealing with this uncertainty requires an adapted mindset – a ‚Futures Mindset‘.
The Futures Mindset is a thought experiment that trains our brain to deal with alternative futures and thus remain capable of acting in the present.
I do believe in capacity building and strong partnerships. Instead of telling you how the future will unfold, I enable you and your organisation to learn the right tools and skills to explore alternative futures and shape your desirable future with future-oriented decision-making every day. With FutureME, I offer you a holistic concept that empowers you to tackle the complexity of the future while learning how to dance with uncertainty. The combination of workshops, inspiration and knowledge sharing as well as empowering guidance to strengthen your Futures Literacy.
Rethinking the future! The future is not only a topic for management and strategy, every employee in the company should understand their influence and role in the future. A new way of thinking about the future (Futures Thinking) motivates everyone within the organization to actively shape the future instead of just preparing for it. Rethink and act instead of freeze and respond! In my talks I will enlighten your joy for the future!
Activate your Futures Mindset! In my 1-2 days workshops you will learn to discover the challenges and opportunities of the future, and be able to describe your own path into the future, so that you already know today which decisions will lead to your preferred future. At the same time, we will learn how to build resilience to remain capable of acting at all times. in the face of unexpected events and risks. In my workshops we will travel together into the future to simplify decision-making in the present.
Find and implement your own vision for the future! A common mission and vision not only increases the motivation of employees, but also makes the company relevant for the future. Instead of relying on the core business, it is important to align one’s own core competencies with the challenges of the future. If you can solve long-term social, technological, economic, ecological or political problems through your own skills, then your company is future-oriented and resilient. I support you in redesigning this pathway.
