Daniel Burrus helps you transform your business by teaching you how to anticipate the future. Burrus has been the secret weapon for many of the world’s best led organizations.

My job in our shared clients is helping clients implement the strategies he’s help create. I know you’re going to love his ideas as much as I do. My role is helping you see how to apply his ideas inside your organization, today!
Daniel Burrus believes it’s better to lead than compete. We both share our love for learning and then apply what we learn to transform your markets. Daniel Burrus understands the power of saying the right things in the right way to get best results possible. He is an innovator in the boldest sense of the word. Burrus is a visionary who believes that we need to elevate collaboration to the next level if we hope to solve many of the world’s largest challenges.
Daniel and I had a conversation about agility recently, where he shared an incredible insight with me. Let’s see if I can do it justice. Think of a coin. On one side is agility. Your organization can not succeed without being agile. In most cases, agility is a response to circumstances that are occurring to your organization. It’s almost impossible to be agile on a proactive basis. Agility is a must-have for your organization to thrive in these fast-changing times.
Now, let’s think about what is on the other side of that coin. What do you think it would be? What’s needed to lead in the transformation economy? You might say is speed, innovation, or even increased organizational foresight. Burrus believes the other side of the coin is anticipation. Anticipation leverages these key capabilities.
He told me that he believes successful leaders must know how to anticipate what is going to happen, then create a strategy based on certainty. Finding certainty in an uncertain world is a huge business advantage. It’s not enough to see around corners. We also need to decide which corners we go around and how.
Dan’s created a system that provides you with the insights you need to better understand your current market conditions. He helps you leverage what you’ve learned to create a more extraordinary business. The capabilities you need to succeed in this accelerating world.
Risk is a four-letter word to most business executives. What if I could share with you a system that minimizes risk, opens new opportunities, and lets you lead your own way. I believe learning how to see the future in advance can provide your organization with an incredible advantage. This anticipatory process can help make you an even better leader.
Now that I’ve got you thinking differently about agility and anticipation. We will be returning to both over the coming months as we help take your leadership to a different level.
