My guest this episode is Dr. Matt Kutz, leadership catalyst, talent developer, professor, and award winning author.  Matt shares his fascinating story of how he has combined his expertise as a certified, licensed athletic trainer with the world of global leadership development and organization development.  We take a deep dive into his book, Contextual Intelligence and the role of insight, foresight, and hindsight.  We talk about the importance of understanding context and contextual cues and being able to adapt our behavior to match our environment.  We discuss the role of mental models and schema and how to use his Contextual Intelligence and his 3D thinking model to solve problems around complexity, uncertainty, and ambiguity.  Matt takes us through the 12 behaviors of contextually intelligent people and shares the empirical research behind his ideas.
