February: Wise Coaching: (SDG 17)

An X Factor of Leadership

Call for Papers:

Coaching and training have always been a means to cope with change and progress. However, with the advent of Postnormal Times, which is characterized by complexity, chaos and contradictions, traditional approaches to coaching and training based on skills acquisition and management are not just ineffective--they are part of the problem! Dramatic and swift change is sweeping across many industries, and yet many leaders are unprepared to act and operationalize shifts to confront the disruptions of life in postnormal times. Now, more than ever, leaders need wisdom to navigate through the complexity, chaos, and contradictions of life in an age of tumult.
Creating wise leaders and adopting anticipatory perspectives represents a significant departure from conventional conceptions and models of leadership. Wise coaching and training is an X-factor, and points toward the creation of a new cohort of global leaders with heightened futures consciousness and proactive awareness of postnormal times. This is the mindset of wise leaders, such as Sam Altman the president of Y-Combinator and his project of UBI (Universal Basic Income). It is through wise coaching and training, which will be based on the forthcoming Wisdom Index (WI) and the Wisdom Maturity Model (WMM) that we can foster and support a new generation of wisdom leaders.

Main Themes:
1. Future of Coaching & Training: An X Factor of Leadership.
2. Wise Practices: Best Coaching Practices.
3. Seeing the Big Picture: the Role of wise Coaching in creating wise leaders.
4. Ways to initiate a Wisdom Index & a Wisdom Maturity Model in the field of
Coaching & Training.

World Wisdom Initiative

Humanity has reached a point in its history where the critical success factor is not food or water or innovation and creating wealth, though all of these are very important. I think what we need today and for the better of our future is wisdom.
