“The Radical Approach to Becoming a Visionary” with Radhika Dutt — Fall 2021 Breakout Session

Radhika Dutt

For centuries we’ve lionized leaders who have an innate gift for setting monumental goals and knowing just how to achieve them. We’ve labelled them visionaries. Changing the world has come to be seen as the preserve of visionaries such as Steve Jobs or Elon Musk. For the rest of us, being a visionary seems largely out of reach.

In this session, we’ll challenge this idea with inspiring stories of what it means to be a visionary. We’ll consider how each and every one of us can change the world, methodically and in a repeatable manner.

Engage in a discussion on how we can apply the ideas introduced in this talk to our own worlds.
