The collision of megatrends – the leadership challenge

“Sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can take their place”. So said Marilyn Monroe and in this Talking Leadership podcast, The Alexander Partnership’s Lloyd Wigglesworth talks to Leo Johnson – author of Turnaround Challenge, Business & the City of the Future, presenter of BBC 4’s Futureproofing and Head of Disruption and Innovation at PwC – who describes how we have arrived at the “most Marilyn of moments”, when business leaders need to reinvent the future as well as protect the present. 

Johnson argues that the collision of megatrends such as the inequality crisis, a debt crisis, a climate crisis and a manufacturing crisis have created an inherent vulnerability which is being exposed by the biological crisis. Leaders need to not only consider how to protect their business through this crisis but to allocate enough time and energy to understand the megatrends and consider how to create something new that's going to work.
