Not many organizations or business leaders can see that far into the future. But when one thinks about it, certain changes had to occur. Maybe hindsight is twenty-twenty but after pagers, the modern cell phone was inevitable. And as things became even more mobile, the computer too had to become smaller and portable. Thus, this new paradigm shift erupted.
Titles like The Business of Paradigms shows you case studies of specific organizations and their success stories. When companies learn to focus on Joel Barker paradigms and see where the future of their business lies, they leap ahead of the curve and hold tremendous power over those who don’t. He goes even further to demonstrate the power to implement change and those resistant to change with the program Tactics of Innovation.

A leader is no longer what it used to be as well. The Power of Vision Joel Barker program insists that the new leader is defined as someone whom you chose as someone to follow to a place you wouldn’t go by yourself. This is to be defined in a Joel Barker Paradigm video as someone who tells you what to do or the person you answer to when things go wrong.
A Joel Barker paradigm video in such films as Paradigm Pioneers is probably best defined as a model or pattern that is always changing and must be adjusted to.

The Power of Vision is a breakthrough Joel Barker Paradigm video that studies how a clear positive vision of the future not only gives meaning to our current life but positive outcomes to our future selves.
