We've heard a lot of familiar, yet perhaps unclear terminology / themes at Exponential Finance. ARK Invest's Lisa Kay Solomon broke down some of the pressing recurring concepts in her talk: Investing in Disruptive Innovation: The Big Ideas for 2017:
- Exponential Thinking
- Global Grand Challenges
- Exponential Technologies
- Transformational Practices
- Exponential Community
Solomon inspired XFin attendees to ask:
1) Who are you as a designer of experiences for your team as you work towards these objectives?
2) Where does innovation, creativity, flexibility and grit fall into your interactions?
However, to ensure the exponential sharing of her ideas, here is a clip of some of the topics covered in Solomon's talk:
Lisa Kay Solomon // Designing Better Futures // LX 2017
In a world filled with increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, leaders need to find new ways of responding to adaptive challenges. They need to get comfortable with ambiguity and seek insight from a broader range of places. They need to continuously frame and reframe not only their answers but also the questions they pose. In other words, they need to approach change much less like mechanics and more like designers. Lisa Kay Solomon, innovation advisor, executive educator, and author will share leadership insights from her books, Moments of Impact and Design A Better Business, and transformational practices work at Singularity University focused on helping leaders design better futures. Lisa will cover the strategic foundations of design and leadership and how it impacts our lives as community change agents, innovators and influencers.
