The present invites us to contemplate and grapple with how we lead, learn, educate, and think in a manifestly uncertain world. At the same time, media and messaging bombards us with predictions and “answers” about the future, as if to reinforce our obsession with control and certainty. What seems to be missing, at least for me personally, is a place to ponder the nature of uncertainty itself — in intentional conversation with other people. (Socially distanced, of course.)
So, I asked some fascinating and intriguing leaders and contemplatives to join me over a series of webinar discussions about uncertainty. In my invitation to these panelists, I described the modus operandi: “These sessions are intended to be informal conversations that explore uncertainty with fellow colleagues, thinkers, and leaders who are interested in learning from/with one another, publicly.” This isn’t about the answers, it’s about the questions.
Six conversations are scheduled, with six cohorts of guests. Conversations will be livestreamed and later available via podcast. The first conversation is this Friday. Please join us in real-time, if you are able.
