Course objectives:
You know the data points floating around the periphery of your consciousness mean something but you can’t quite put it all together. Perhaps it was a snippet of discussion from a meeting with your team, a seemingly unrelated report on the nightly news, and an innocuously increasing silence from the normally lively front line people. Something’s up but you can’t quite put your finger on it. And then, all of a sudden, you find yourself caught and surprised by a new turn of events, forced to revise forecasts and change priorities.

This topic introduce you to the power of foresight. It helps you learn to better see what is unseen or overlooked, and seek meaning and coherence beneath the surface of things. You can increase your ability to 'read' and 'interpret’ the changing moods of the community, popular opinions, students, and employees, perhaps even uncovering a number of immediate, yet overlooked opportunities.
