Leading in these Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) times isn’t easy.

In this masterclass, we’ll explore how VUCA leaders are able to calm their emotions and think clearly, they have foresight to see where they are going but can also remain flexible about how they get there. They must be self-aware about their strengths and weaknesses as leaders, adaptable, open to change, and, knowledgeable about their organisation beyond their function. Finally, they must work collaboratively and be excellent communicators to thrive in a complex VUCA environment. Above all, VUCA leaders must be able to learn fast because change is constant. These skills and abilities are a far cry from the more function-specific, technical skills and abilities leaders needed in the past to succeed. In this session, we will discuss how these ideas can be applied practically in these Covid 19 times.
