If you went back 10 years – would you agree with yourself?

change

If you were to step into the DeLorean Time Machine and went back ten years to meet with your younger self, what could you agree on, and where would you argue?

On the one hand, the world is rapidly evolving. On the other hand, we see increased polarisation and entrenched positions. Are you ‘weak’ if you change your mind or is this a sign of strength? And if you seek to change the minds of others, how about your own?

Leaders with a growth mindset and a dedication to life-long learning are more effective in rapidly changing environments. This inherently means effective leaders change their minds: when the circumstances they face have changed, they obtain more information or hear meaningful alternative arguments. The constancy of purpose, but not its dogmatism.

What significant topics have you changed your mind on?
