Future-Ready Leadership

Want Good Advice for Building a  Future-Ready Organization?

What the heck does this guy know? 

Chris Groscurth, Ph.D.

I'm Chris and I get paid to help leaders manage messy changes. Why? Because I know what the heck I'm doing--I listen to my clients. I use predictive analytics and proven methods to help organizations change. I have good instincts. And I build teams and inspire them to bust their butts to get the job done.

In all honesty, I hope that you don't need my help. Sincerely, I hope that you and the leaders in your organization are having lots of success managing the volatile, uncertain, and unrelenting changes that are defining fourth industrial revolution (4iR) organizations.

But chances are, you're probably struggling with something around the future of work. Chances are something isn't working. You probably know that things aren't going as smoothly as they could/should be. Chances are, deep down inside, you know that your organization isn't future-ready.

Changes in strategy, structure, people, leaders, brand, purpose, culture, technology, digitization, innovation, new operating model, radical investors, need for greater efficiency, need for better customer experience, need to simplify, more M&A, change fatigue? 

Sound familiar? That's what I thought. No leader or organization is immune to 4iR change. That's why I started this blog. I've been in the trenches advising leaders and helping them change their organizations for the past 17 years. I've been a strategic consultant to Fortune 100 leaders, start-ups, universities, and non-profits all over the world. 

Even other consultants hire me. In fact, some of the biggest consulting firms in the world have sought my advice and training for getting their people ready to advise on the future of work. But, what do I know? I'm just a blue-collar kid from Detroit with an addiction to change and helping leaders be even more successful. 

I started the Leadership 4iR blog to educate and empower leaders like you with free information and tools to create future-ready organizations. 

Want to learn more about what I know and how I've been able to do it in other companies? Start by reading my blog. Then sign up for my book. It's called Future-Ready Leadership and it's loaded with good advice for getting your organization in shape for the future. It's coming out in September 2018 with Praeger  and is filled with good research, ideas to make you think, and useful advice.

My suggestion, is to 1) put your email address in one of these boxes. It'll be worth your while. I don't send a lot of junk emails, just good advice. 2) Connect with me on social media, and 3) let's start transforming the world of work together!

Best of luck and see you in the future,
