The “FutureReady” podcast

The world is in a state of transformation unlike any time before. New and disruptive technologies, huge societal shifts, erosion of trust amongst consumers towards businesses.

As society, as organisations and individuals we feel that we feel that the old world that we know is changing: how we work, how we live, how we connect. Business as usual is over.

The question is though: do we want a return to business-as-usual? What do we want to keep? And what can we change for the better?

Luckily there are progressive and independent people and organizations who are already finding innovative and exciting answers to these questions, showing us that it’s possible not only to survive, but to adapt and thrive!

FutureReady is a podcast for and with thought leaders and change makers. Host and co-founder of COSYN, Arne Kötting talks to business leaders, academics, independent experts, artists and more, exploring four key pillars of a successful, resilient and future-ready organization:

  • Transformation & Innovation
  • Workplace & Culture
  • Thought Leadership; and
  • Sustainability

Focusing on one of these topics in each episode, we’ll look at the companies who are getting it right and talk to the experts and thinkers who are leading in each area, finding out what they can teach us about building future-ready organizations.

Expect insight, expect surprises – and definitely expect inspiration. Time to get FutureReady.

    Can companies suffer trauma?

    Organizations everywhere are going through huge upheavals and transformations. On a change consultant’s PowerPoint slides, these can look like nice, neat and easy ‘projects’ that seamlessly move the company into its new MO. But can anything ever truly be neat and easy where humans are involved? Even the biggest transformation is ultimately a very personal, emotional thing – and what motivates one, can block the other… To understand the human dimension of change we spoke to Professor Dr George Bonanno, an expert in trauma, grief and resilience. Tune in to discover why trauma isn’t what we think it is, how we might remain flexible in the face of adversity, and why resilience is like a pie.
