Thought Piece: A New Kind of Leader
Every week, we are adding new content to Shaping Tomorrow.
As interest in shaping the future grows exponentially around the world we are finding many more interesting links than we can sensibly report in our members newsletter.
During the past week, we have added new links as follows:
This week's additions include articles on trends in blogs, consumerism, design, energy, fashion, fertility, health, innovation, leisure, sustainability and work. By viewing the new material and the links in our database you can anticipate how tomorrow will be different for you and your organisation.
Some patterns we see emerging are the rise and rise of blogs, innovation and design web sites. We have majored on the future of these topics for our members this week.

More researchers needed
Shaping Tomorrow's continued growth and developing services means we are constantly looking for more professional researchers. Our researchers contribute to our newsletter, database, blindspots and newly created Horizon Scanning service.
W need more volunteer researchers to:
You will need to be detail-conscious, web-savvy and interested in the subjects, geographies or industries you choose to research. The rest we can teach you.
In return, we offer free Personal Membership of Shaping Tomorrow, possible client work and acknowledgement of your role within our community.

Head of Foresight
The National Trust is one of Britain's leading conservation charities. They are responsible for over 250,000 hectares of land, 1,100 km of coastline and 300 houses and gardens open to the public. They have 3.3 million members, employ 5,000 people and invest 180m pounds each year in the nation's natural and historic environment across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Following a restructuring they are developing a new three person Strategy and Foresight team based in striking new offices in the centre of Swindon. The team will work at the heart of the National Trust with responsibility for their Strategic Plan. You will develop and implement the National Trust's approach to foresight, horizon scanning, scenario planning and the use of external information and intelligence to inform decisions and shape their future. They need you to be the eyes and ears of the organisation, gathering and distilling relevant information and making sure they make best use of it. A relevant track record of research and analysis is required and knowledge of horizon scanning and scenario planning is desirable.
