Learning to Lead in a VUCA world
Addressing the Strategic Leadership Challenge in Complex Systems
For leaders working in a complex human system, the lived experience can be both challenging and confusing. Our world is characterised by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA).
The leadership challenge is to find meaning and gain insight, leading to the ability to take positive action. This requires the process of “leading to learn” where the emphasis is placed on leader as host in a system, rather than occupying a more traditional heroic role.
The art of a leader in a VUCA world involves adopting a reflexive approach. This involves challenging one’s own taken for granted assumptions and those of others, seeking to generate meaningful understanding of what is expected of them and the organisation’s and systems they are engaged in.
This session offers a potential route map to enable leaders to navigate the complexity of VUCA systems, leading to enhanced understanding and the development of sustainable strategic approaches to service delivery.
