Applying Perspective-centred Principles

You are a respected leader or manager within a thriving business, yet sooner or later you will face challenges that are beyond your division's or organization’s present capacities and efforts.

You will have succeeded to this point by being diligent, intelligent and pragmatic. Even your charisma and panache are bedded in the tried and true. If new or intense challenges require new thinking from you, then that is best handled by recognizing and respecting perspective-centred principles.

The needed principles and dangers are described in detail here. However, this is the Perspective-centred story in a nutshell:

Overwhelmed with Complexity?

A diverse multiplicity of mind-sets, experts and alternatives can be too much of a good thing. What you really need to grasp is the single strategy that will tackle the situation and in which people can believe and focus their energies.

The perspective-centred Mode, being a realm of abstraction, multiplicity and neutrality, does not help much.

You have tried using various methods, e.g.Closed you may have created or become part of a sophisticated knowledge-cum-intelligence apparatus to master technology, operations and markets via scenario planning and creativity techniques. But this usually extrapolates the future from the recent past. Possibilities of profound discontinuity have either been denied or treated more as an exercise to indulge consultants than as an immediate reality.

The only solution is to step back and come down to earth, cut through complications and commit to a fateful course that will drive the business forward to success amidst uncertainty and complexity. But how?

Fortunately there is a Mode that takes you into the future at every moment, and it alone allows and expects success. It puts facts and theories, people and pressures, politics and competition and more into the correct context. But it involves using reality-centred principles.
