The Foresight Guide
Being a Leader in Anticipating, Creating & Managing the Future
Our Aim: To be the world’s best online intro to general futures thinking and professional foresight practice, and the best Big Picture Guide to the future from an acceleration-aware, evo devo, and evidence-based perspective.
An encyclopedic resource for anyone interested in anticipating, creating and managing the future. The Foresight Guide is the first book anywhere that addresses a complete range of readers interested in the foresight field, including students, educators, and organizational leaders. It is a remarkably complete source for our times.
One part encyclopedia, one part text, one part self-help, one part editorial, and one part call to action. The field of foresight seems much bigger now than it did before reading this, and my professional reading list is now on a super-exponential curve!
What a work! It is all in here; this is the book to read to understand and overlook the entire field of foresight.

Values – We believe:
- Accelerating change is real. Humanity is gaining superpowers, right now, and we need to use them better.
- Foresight is a critical personal and social skill. We get better at it with training and practice, together.
- Leadership starts with knowing and working on ourselves, in honest, loving, and authentic ways.
- Progress has a direction, and includes intelligent optimism, empowerment, social empathy, and evidence-based thinking.
- We must use science and technology to improve our morality and the well-being of all life, even as that changes the nature of life, as outlined in the 2002 Transhumanist Declaration.
Goals – We help people:
- Get affordable, high-quality training in universal, personal, global, and organizational (UPGO) foresight.
- Realize the incredible power, promise and first-gen risks of exponential science and technologies.
- Get better at seeing, and helping others see, probable, possible, and preferable futures.
- Become more intelligently optimistic, empowered, empathic, and evidence-based leaders and self-leaders.
- Grow their community of high-integrity, practical, future-oriented colleagues, friends, and acquaintances.

- Online and print media (The Foresight Guide) to promote UPGO foresight and leadership development.
- Courses, certs, workshops and retreats in strategic foresight, leadership, and entrepreneurship (launching in 2017).
- Platforms for open, collaborative foresight production (Futurepedia, Futureworthy, Foresight Channel).
