Career strategies to maximise impact at the income you need as complexity increases
As our growth addicted system struggles to decouple extraction and exclusion fast enough, volatility across all stakeholders is increasing. We believe all functions and all boards would benefit if they increased the amount of people who have:
Non-linear experiences; have worked to decouple extraction and exclusion from growth in multiple systems not just the system of employer or client for example the Business system, but as many of the other systems as possible. Investment, Government, Civil Society, Think Tank or Academia.
An understanding of the pros and cons of our Growth addicted system versus a Growth Agnostic system.
This is in addition to the more traditional diversity, focused around gender, ethnicity, functions, sectors and cultures.
We believe Non-Linear competency is even more important in periods of destructive degrowth growth (stagflation).
We see a direct correlation between the linearity of leadership teams and their advisory boards and their inability to see complexity from a systems perspective.
The more linear their careers the more they see decoupling extraction and exclusion as an innovation or market making play.

“Change and innovation have never more in fashion than today. It is simply the silver bullet for success in any organization. Radical innovation in particular is in demand as this is really hard to do, but at the same time what creates real value and takes the organization to the next level. This is where Six Degree People come into the picture.
They know that it is people who create change and innovation, and they know the right people and the right role they might play as an employee, advisor or even a fan to make the greatest impact.. This is a rare art, managed by few people only. It takes a huge network, an untraditional mindset and the courage to think and act differently. All this is engrained in Six Degree People and it is fun, challenging and hugely value-adding to work with this unique team.”
