Winning the post lockdown world
We have entered a new period between one age and the next.
Here is what it means for you
Coronavirus offers a rare moment, a pocket of exceptional time to shape the future positively for all
Kairos is a military term used by Greek archers
Imagine an army advancing in perfect unison protected behind tightly packed shields. Greek archers were revered for their ability to anticipate kairos — the opportune moment when fleeting gaps would open up between the shields allowing arrow to penetrate the hiding enemy.
This takes tremendous skill. Many things must come together in perfect synchronicity to achieve success: a proactive mind, a sharp eye, keen senses in tune with the environment and disciplined focus. All important skills for today’s leaders facing up to a modern day kairos.
Winning the decade of disruption will be a marathon, not a sprint. Understanding the context of kairos within your organisation will help create the shared vocabulary needed to tackle the transformative change ahead of you.
