At Reservoir, we envision a world where organizations are designed with a genetic code to create an essential culture that is built to last far into the future and deliver a diversity of long-term impacts: financial benefits, societal benefits, and environmental benefits. And in order to last, one of the most important tasks for a leader to understand is: how to lead through disruption. Not only how to react, but to plan ahead, through upstream thinking, turnaround strategy and execution.
At Reservoir & MARKO Advance we intend to be at the heart of a transformation of leadership consciousness in pursuit of two essential questions: What world are we called to create? And how do we elevate the human experience? We see leadership and work as a path of self-knowledge and enlightenment. In our client organizations, and in other like-minded organizations around the world, we see the magnitude and diversity of impacts that such leadership creates.
We Advise senior leaders. We Advance leadership development and learning at the C-Suite and mid-level. We Advocate for better outcomes for people and the planet.

In these times of constant change, every leader needs a new way of thinking about strategy and execution. With constant innovation in processes and technology, pressures on both global and local economies, and societal transformation, what worked last year may not work next year.
That is why this workshop is focused on understanding how to futurecast before disruption occurs, and lead through any crisis or change of market dynamics. Literally, they can sustain smooth operations and financial outcomes, no matter how disruptive the market appears.
This workshop is designed to engage leadership in a growing organization – or leaders across organizational and industry boundaries – in imagining what wants to happen next in society and what your industry and your organization can do to promote sustainable progress. We use present casting, futurecasting and turnaround strategy techniques to help leaders visualize the emerging future so they can give birth to better outcomes with the appropriate strategy in hand. This workshop is right for you, if you are an operational leader (C-Suite/VP/Director-Level) with strategic planning responsibilities within your organization.
