Call to Action:: Take our Grey Swan Guild Weathervane V - Uncertainty Survey


Context:

This is our Guild's 3X-annual opportunity to engage our community of deep thinkers, senior practitioners and curious others on their view of business, cultural, economic, marketplace, societal, technology, and workplace sentiment. We call them Weathervanes..


Our Grey Swan Guild's mission is to make better sense of the world.and its biggest challenges, current and future. Our intelliegince efforts are a key plank in this pursuit.


We want to understand your perspectives on the topic of Uncertainty as a companion piece of intelligence sitting next to our just-published book of the same name "Uncertainty: Making Sense of the World for Better, Bolder Outcomes" (Cygnus Publishing)..




Why:

Uncertainty is both the paralyzer and catalyst of our times.. Our Guild thought so much of this disruptive force that our first publication of our Cygnus Publishing venture "Uncertainty: Making Sense of the World for Better, Bolder Outcomes."


Our unique intelligence contribution to the this important and relevant topic is to provide:

  • a mix of current and future perspectives

  • implications and applications for professionals and practitioners

  • post-pandemic realities and a sped-up, frenzied world

  • a blend of expert qualitative POVs and quantitive support

  • a focus on the intended actions and impacts of operating in an Uncertain world
