Paradoxically, the wonders of technology may be returning us to an earlier way of thinking that has more in common with indigenous cultures than what the Harvard Business School teachers, according to the Tarlows, co-creators of “Accelerating Results,” a worldwide seminar program. Balancing the intuitive with the rational, they point to a limitless field of possibilities in the 21st Century world of work and business, which includes moving quickly, being flexible, changing directions and deep trust. “The only way to accommodate an accelerating culture is to go into a new way of being which is more instinctive.”
The Tarlows are the authors of Navigating the Future (Prentiss-Hall 1999) and Digital Aboriginal: The Direction of Business Now: Instinctive, Nomadic and Ever-Changing (Warner 2002).
