About Flux: 8 Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change
Being adaptable and flexible have always been hallmarks of effective leadership, but recent events have seriously stress tested this idea. How do you find calm in the midst of all this chaos?
You need a new mindset, one that treats constant change and uncertainty as a feature, not a bug. Flux helps you develop eight “flux superpowers” that take conventional ideas and turn them on their heads. They’ll enable you to see change in new ways, develop new responses, and ultimately reshape your relationship to change. The eight flux superpowers are:
1. Run slower
2. See what’s invisible
3. Get lost
4. Start with trust
5. Know your “enough”
6. Create your portfolio career
7. Be all the more human (and serve other humans)
8. Let go of the future
The world is in constant flux, but we can learn to navigate change gracefully and confidently. Whether you’re sizing up your career or reassessing your values, designing a product or building an organization, trying to inspire your colleagues or simply show up more fully in the world, activating your flux superpowers will keep you grounded even when the ground is constantly shifting beneath you.
