I need at least 150-word comment on my classmate’s discussion
Future Search Video – Janoff and Weisbord
Good Evening Professor and Class,
I used the following video for the completion of this discussion post: https://m.youtube.com/watch?V=WPgGv48r_D8
The video that I selected contained an interview conducted by Jacobite Geel with Sandra Janoff and Marvin Weisbord on the Future Search Network. The interview did a great job explaining the concept of Future Search. In fact, the video reinforced many of the concepts depicted in the reading materials. To be more specific in the video Janoff and Weisbord explained that the Future Search Conference creates opportunities for everyone that cares about an issue to contribute (via a large group process) to improving upon it or as Nixon (1998) said in the reading “create their desired future.” Using the diverse perspectives of everyone involved, the process creates ideal future scenarios and action plans exactly as Nixon (1998) described in, “Creating the futures we desire-getting the whole system into the room:part1.” The video also explained how the process requires leadership buy-in explaining that it is only successful if leaders relinquish some level of control, and invest in the ideas presented by the stakeholders. In other words as Nixon explained leaders have to be willing to co-create (Nixon, 1998).
The video was well organized. Janoff and Weisbord’s portion of the presentation was excellent. They presented the concepts in a professional and easy to understand way. They appeared to be subject matter experts answering each question with precision and ease. It was easy to see how Janoff and Weisbord became successful consultants. They were energetic, professional, and knowledgeable. The interviewer had a small language barrier that took away from the professionalism of the video, but not the speakers or their presentation.
