From Malthus To Mars



"From Malthus to Mars" is a book by Nicolai Chen Nielsen and Lars Tvede that delivers insights in the driving forces behind the accelerating pace of change in our world, to help us find our own ways as individuals or organizations to thrive and contribute in a future that is better than the past, but from time to time also very overwhelming.

At individual level, we get introduced to The eight Future Fit mindsets that reinforce each other and connects us to abundance. They give us hacks for self-motivation, learning, and adapting -in a never ending cycle.

At organizational level, we get to discuss ten key shifts that every organization should consider as they are common for the best performing businesses and organizations in modern, dynamic environments.

What is your way of dealing with the changes around you and how are you changing with it? What questions will you ask Nicolai Chen Nielsen when you get the chance in our live session with him?
