Future Pacing

Future Pacing

When we ask people to think about our current state of affairs, they can become anxious or sad, defensive or cynical — all reactions that keep them from jumping in and getting to work. Future pacing asks people to put themselves in the future and envision what it will look and feel like when we succeed. Leaders who have developed the skill of future pacing are able to motivate people to action by inspiring them to plan and achieve the future together.
