“What's the problem we're trying to solve?
What is the question that we're trying to answer?
The key is getting the question right.”
I recently had the opportunity to engage in a fascinating conversation with a fellow life-long learner and high-touch futurist. That discussion with Dr. Connie Reimers-Hild, founder of Wild Innovation and Interim Executive Director and Chief Futurist for the Rural Futures Institute (RFI) at the University of Nebraska, was recorded for the Rural Futures Podcast. On a weekly basis, this platform explores rural-urban divide, technology development, and the future of work.
On our episode, we talk through a host of interesting and timely topics about the incredible changes happening at this current intersection of technology and humanity.
And why the key to all of this is getting the question right and ridding ourselves of the biases and belief systems that stand in the way of asking that question and pursuing the right answers. In the midst of this rich discussion, we have a concrete discussion about what is quite likely the most critical security risk for our planet and an honest conversation about the truest markers of leadership. There’s no doubt that we’re in the thick of trying to figure out the benchmarks of the future organization. Even as we identify them, they change.
This was an impactful conversation about the pursuit of the future that I sincerely enjoyed. I know you will too.
