Welcome to the new reality: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous
When systems, organizations or business models are at the end of their life-cycle, it is time for radical renewal. A special kind people is able to break with the past and put completely new structures in place: Game Changers. These are the creative, complex and capable individuals equipped to tackle today's VUCA-world.
Unlike classical high-potentials, Game Changers aren't always easily recognized. Or valued for what they have to offer. This leaves a large potential untapped that is needed now more than ever before.
We profile, place and performance-coach potential Game Changers to realize their full Game Change Potential. For organizations we assemble and support Game Change teams for a 'Future proofing your Company' project.
At the basis of these services is an in-depth 240-item questionnaire which establishes your unique Game Change Potential along the Game Change Triad:
Future leadership requires Creative, Complex and Capable individuals
Applying interlinked talents, intelligences or gifts.
Truly original creative ideas are rare. They only emerge where unexpected connections are being made between previously unconnected fields. This is what Game Changer excel at and what is essential for reinventing any game.
Game Changers are gifted at least two distinct talents or intelligences. The intersections point to where their creativity will flow and where their contribution will be at its most valuable. There are 8 talents in total which make up an individual Game Changers' creative potential.
Being attuned to an ever growing layeredness and interrelatedness.
At the core of the Game Change personality is a complex character. They are built to handle change and deal with ambiguity and uncertainty. Continuous development comes standard with Game Changers.
It takes complex people to tackle complex issues such as the radical renewal of systems. Especially in a world where interconnection has become the norm, complexity is a prerequisite for that. There are five distinct traits that make up the complexity in a Game Changers' character.
Transforming creative ideas into pioneering action.
A great idea by itself never changes anything and you can't reinvent a game from the side. Game Changers have the capability to convert their creative ideas into pioneering actions. They are both creative thinkers and able doers.
Taking pioneering action means entering unknown territory. Something completely different than being good at the old game, which characterises the classic high potential. The right kind of pioneering action requires two other abilities: global orientation and individual direction.
