Hi and welcome, I’m Bill Fox, Co-founder of Forward-Thinking Workplaces.
My work here is about helping people and organizations discover new ways of being more forward-thinking to help you thrive in today’s world of ever-increasing whitewater.
Many organizations today need to get more done with fewer people and resources while taking on more and more challenging work making everyone’s contribution more important than ever — but how do we get people to get out of their comfort zone, step up to the challenges and be more innovative?
In a world that’s in a state of constant whitewater and increasing complexity and disruption, we need to expand the way we evolve the status quo to meet today’s challenges. Knowledge, best practices and working harder or even smarter are no longer enough.
We need to learn how to interact with each other with an open mind and be ready to discover whatever is there for us to see. Rather than listening for the right answers, we need to enhance our ability to see what’s true and have the freedom to act on it.
When we’re relying on past knowledge, best practices and more activity in the face of relentless change and disruption, we’re still living in the past. We need to design ourselves and our organizations to be more forward-thinking.
At Forward-Thinking Workplaces, our mission is to help you discover, uncover and create the new and untried paths that will lead you and your organization to a better future and solve today’s most vexing workplace challenges.
Here’s how we might help you in our coaching, speaking and workshop engagements:
- How to become a more forward-thinking and conscious human capable of living and contributing your full potential
- How to leverage and engage with our ongoing and growing conversation of better answers, better questions, insights & wisdom with over 100 top business leaders & executives
- How to create a conversation and ask new questions that leverage and harness new intelligence and collective wisdom
Over my career, I have witnessed so many workplace improvement and change initiatives that didn’t work out or last. Doing what everyone else is doing frequently doesn’t solve the real problem, is resisted by too many (often for good reasons), and rarely survives a change in company management or an unforeseen event. There is so much time, money, passion, and goodwill flushed down the toilet. I decided to do something about it.
After 30 years of managing many enterprise change projects, I quit my corporate job in 2009 when yet another transformation project I was leading came to a sudden end with a change in executive management. It was a familiar story.
Exploring Forward-Thinking Workplaces™ is my search for better answers, better questions, wisdom and truth to help solve today’s most vexing workplace challenges.
The best way to find out about how I think and my innovative approach to workplace transformation is to check out many of my free materials, especially the Forward-Thinking Workplace Guide, my blog, and many of the interviews I’ve done with over 50 distinguished global leaders and executives.
“Bill has the unique gift of asking simple questions that make you stop, think and reflect. Being interviewed and chatting with Bill certainly helped me to verbalize my own ideas and give expression to my own thought processes, with depth and clarity at the same time. A great and worthy experience!” -Steve Tendon, Managing Director TameFlow
