The Future of Personal Development

Nick Jankel, transformational futurist, the CEO and co-founder of Switch On, and author of the new book Now Lead The Change, interviewed by futurist Trond Arne Undheim. 

In this conversation, they talk about The Personal Development Market. VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity). Trends in Self-help, Leadership, Therapy, Coaching, and Healing. Brain science. Wisdom. Practical psychology. Bio-Transformation Theory.   Reading cognitive v. emotional signals in yourself and others. The future of business and human personal development, next decade and beyond. Being future-proof (as organizations and individuals).

The takeaway is that the Personal Development Market is just starting up. If you include Therapy, Coaching, Leadership, and Mindfulness apps, it may well be a 100 billion market. The idea that we should be the change we want to see in the world, a saying that has been attributed to the famous Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi, is easy to pronounce but hard to do, but may well be an essential insight. What is for certain is that we cannot sit around waiting for positive change, no matter where we are on the societal ladder. Tying it explicitly to futurist thinking was novel to me and quite refreshing.
