So how do we enhance our capacity to be future-ready for this escalating complexity and uncertainty in world that is volatile and uncertain?

One thing we do know is that the practical aspects of building capacity and a culture that values community, collaboration, and innovation will be critical. A sense of community and belonging, and the resulting trusted relationships and informal networks, will be the result of impactful collaborators – who may or may not have a formal title but do more to prioritize trusted relationships with their community of stakeholders.
