It's time to think ahead

In many ways, our calling as leaders is greater now than ever.  You must be able to see what’s possible, not just what is.

That is why I’ve created The Future-Thinking Leader, an online training that will help you hone your “future-thinking” skills, lead a return to business and envision a better tomorrow.

Imagine that 2020 is the start of a whole new trajectory of growth for yourself and your team. It's entirely possible, but it will require you to lead in new and different ways. 

Your course includes

  • 4 video lessons delivered in a quick, easy-to-understand format
  • The Future-Thinking Leader workbook to help you apply what you’re learning
  • The Restart Playbook e-guide to help you reimagine your business
  • Reimagining the Future planning template to capture your best ideas for each and every client
  • Unlimited access to the course. View it wherever and whenever you like.

  • Learn future-thinking skills you need to succeed in a rapidly changing environment
  • Better predict which changes are coming and how they could impact your business
  • Think through your biggest challenges and best opportunities
  • Put new ideas into action quickly

The Future-Thinking Leader

Learn which leaders will rise to the challenge in a changing environment. 


Weak Signals

Discover where and how to find clues that can help you determine what trends are going to have real impact. I also share several of my own predictions of weak signals that I believe will indicate strong change. These examples will help you see how easy it is for you to predict what’s coming, too.



This skill is one of the hallmarks of effective leaders. If you don’t understand the landscape, you risk leading your team in the wrong direction. In this module, I share which business skills you probably already have that can help you make sense of a shifting marketplace and determine the right way to move forward.


Envisioning the Future

It’s one thing to have your vision for a new future. It’s quite another to get buy-in from others to follow your lead.  Learn what you can do to help others open their minds to new ways of thinking and more powerfully envision a future together.


A Culture of Try

Once you’ve reimagined a new future, how can you empower others to take that next step?  Learn how to create a “culture of try” that encourages smart risk-taking and inspires others to set big goals and try new strategies that can lead to success.

The Future-Thinking Leader is a companion workbook to your course videos. In it you’ll find a detailed description of the four future-thinking skills along with exercises, questions and suggestions to help you put into practice your new thinking skills. You'll learn:

  • How to be “furiously curious” enough to spot weak signals that could be indicators of strong change
  • Sense-making skills that can help you think through an important decision you need to make
  • How to help your team focus on the benefits of change and find creative ways to reach their goals
  • Three practical leadership strategies that will help you create a “culture of try”

Your course includes The Restart Playbook. A guide to help leaders like you accelerate your return to business while also reimagining your future. This playbook is divided into five sections, each one is a key step in the restart process:

  • Define the new normal
  • Share “future thinking” with clients/customers
  • Reimagine your company’s future
  • Determine the right marketing strategies for growth
  • Understand how test-and-learn can accelerate the launch of new ideas

You’ll also receive the Reimagining the Future planning template to capture your best ideas for each and every client.

This course is designed for...

  • Leaders interested in honing their thinking skills
  • Managers looking for new ways to coach their teams through change
  • Young professionals seeking a better understanding of how the business environment is changing
  • Entrepreneurs looking to rethink their business
  • Client-focused companies looking for ways to help their clients pivot

I’ve built three successful companies from scratch and spent the past two decades advising leaders from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies.  

My biggest adventure was founding Mitchell Communications Group. During my tenure as CEO, the agency grew more than 500% in five years, was twice named to the Inc. 500/5000 list and Agency of the Year, and was a top 10 fastest-growing PR firm globally. Notable clients include: Walmart Stores Inc., Procter & Gamble, Marriott Hotels and Tyson Foods.  

I sold the firm in 2013 and led its successful integration with our parent company, Dentsu Aegis Network. Today I advise clients through my own leadership and business consultancy and am passionate about helping high-performing leaders achieve more. Learn more about Elise here.
