Jeremy Goldman is the author of Going Social and Getting to Like, a former Inc. columnist, and the founder of digital consultancy Firebrand Group. In addition to FUTUREPROOF. he serves as the Director of Marketing & Commerce Briefings at Insider Intelligence.

We’re heading into a new year, and I think everyone—or most people—want to figure out how to just be better in a number of ways in 2023. How to make better decisions, better predict what’s going to happen in the future, and transform their organizations to improve performance. That’s why I thought it’d be fantastic to turn to Aaron de Smet. He’s the co-author of Deliberate Calm: How to Learn and Lead in a Volatile World.

Aaron’s a Senior Partner at McKinsey, where he counsels leadership teams as they transform their organizations to improve performance, organizational health, speed, and agility. He’s also an expert on organizational design, corporate culture, leadership development, team effectiveness, capability building, and transformational change.

Today, we talk about why adaptation is so important to today’s leaders, how leaders can become active and curious listeners, how emotion can help or hinter decision making, and even how neuroscience ties into management consulting.
