Steven D´Souza – Director of Programmes for the Financial Times| IE Business School Corporate Alliance, is an international educator with experience in the fields of HR, leadership and talent management, diversity and organizational development will be delivering a presentation on his most recent publication “Not Knowing” a book he co-authored with Diana Renner.

In order to be thriving in uncertain times, this fascinating book proposes we head, uncomfortably, toward the unknown, rather than away from it. By developing a unique relationship with “Not Knowing” we discover a new way of living, leading, working and succeeding in our modern world.

This book re-frames the concept of Not Knowing, from being in a fearful place of weakness and ignorance, moving to something we must engage with personally. It introduces us to a new paradigm, where Not Knowing becomes an exciting opportunity, where we are no longer limited by what we already know and our habitual reactions to things that life throws at us, so that deeper knowing can emerge, full of rich possibilities and wisdom.

This topic will be relevant to all those who experience uncertainty, volatility, complexity and ambiguity in their work. Especially those who are leaving the familiar and venturing into new unknown territory.
