Bob Johansen began working with IFTF in 1973 and has been a professional futurist for nearly 50 years. The author or co-author of 12 books and a frequent keynote speaker recently completed a trilogy detailing the types of leadership that will thrive in the next decade. The New Leadership Literacies focuses on essential leadership practices, picking up where Leaders Make the Future, its more skills-oriented precursor, left off; in 2020, he published Full-Spectrum Thinking, which focuses on the need for a future back mindset.
His latest book, Office Shock: Creating Better Futures for Working and Living, is co-written with IFTF colleagues Joseph Press and Christine Bullen. Bob holds a B.S. from the University of Illinois (which he attended on a basketball scholarship), an MDiv from Crozer Theological Seminary (where Martin Luther King, Jr., attended divinity school), and a Ph.D. in Sociology of Religion from Northwestern University.
