TAKE A JOURNEY BEYOND YOUR HORIZON…
…by making brave decisions to question the status quo, for changing the game and discovering new worlds.
On August 3rd 1492, Christopher Columbus embarked on his journey heading West. As he discovered the new world, he also changed the paradigm of the old world forever. For many people of his time, a new continent beyond the Atlantic Ocean was not only far beyond their geographic horizon, but far more beyond their mental horizon. read more
150 years prior to the discoveries of Galileo Galilei, safety was found in conformity. Innovative, bold initiatives like the ones undertaken by Columbus were difficult to grasp, yet it is an unconventional enterprise such as this, that bears the potential for true revolution. Had Columbus not questioned the belief that the Earth was flat, he would not have embarked on his journey, proving the contrary and bringing forth countless new opportunities.
A similar paradigm shift is currently in full swing. The global economy is experiencing fundamental change. AI and Blockchain in an IoT landscape are triggering unprecedented technological disruption beyond our horizon of comprehension. The impact of corporate business on the environment has launched a race for renewable energy and the advent of clean and autonomous transportation. Traditional business models are buckling under the pressure to remain competitive, while innovative startups make the stock market headlines.
The AI revolution has resulted in sweeping changes across technology, socio-economics, demographics, and culture, forcing us to question virtually everything. The challenges we face are abrupt, and non-linear resulting in exponential consequences very difficult to predict. Welcome to the slowest day of rest of your life.
This interdependent world requires AI leadership on AQAL and system capacity that are congruent with this new paradigm. Traditional models based on old-school assumptions are failing on a global scale, incapable of adjusting efficiently to change. Success is now, more than ever, the result of our collective intelligence, not just the contributions of an individual. Collective intelligence can be evoked technologically and culturally, ideally both at once.
Columbus’s primary outstanding achievement came from within the reframing of his own internal perspective, in stark contrast with the dogma of his era. Courage and self-reflection are essential to overcome doubt, obstacles, and setbacks while aligning others behind unconventional, risky ideas.
In a world where more of the same is no longer enough, you and your business require truly different solutions. Allow 1492 to guide and support you on your journey towards your new world – towards a new horizon.
