The right thing for your success

Best practice was yesterday - best thinking is in demand today and tomorrow!

Where does the term VUCA come from?

VUCA is an acronym used by the American Military. It stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.
It was the response of the US Army War College to the collapse of the USSR in the early 1990s. Suddenly, there was no longer the only enemy, resulting in new ways of seeing and reacting.

The world of today
Neither an organisation’s leadership nor its strategies are spared in today’s VUCA world. Experiences, dogmas and paradigms must all come under scrutiny; it is no longer a case of finding the one way or the management tool: standards give way to individuality.

 

You as a leader
As a manager, you are responsible for the lion’s share of the decisions about the parameters that define how your organisation can operate.
The increase in volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity means that you and your business must seek new orientations and take a fresh approach to management. Only then can you guarantee positive results in changed circumstances.

The VUCA world challenges you to find your own way. You will need to understand the psycho-logic and develop empathic behaviour – in short, to be more concerned with humans and their needs.
Meaning and purpose take a central role in business activities.

Whereas the heroic manager of the past knew all, could do all, and could solve every problem, the postheroic manager asks how every problem can be solved in a way that develops other people´s capacity to handle it.
Charles Handy
Irish economic and social philosopher

What does VUCA mean for your LEADERSHIP and your strategies?

VISION

VISION

Paint a picture of the future you want. Together; as a compass and for orientation; in order to confer meaning and spark motivation – and to forge internal and external identity and effectiveness.

 

UNDERSTANDING

UNDERSTANDING

Understand interconnections; make them transparent. Reflect on the context. Think and plan meta-strategically. Start from the result and work backwards. Harmonise skills. Embrace and exploit behaviours and reactions. Convert anxiety and resistance into productive energy.
CLARITY

CLARITY

Simplicity. Focus on what counts and what it's really about. Trust, transparent connections and processes. Apply energy and force exactly where they will be most effective.
ADAPTILITY / AGILITY

ADAPTILITY / AGILITY

Flexibility. Agility. Scrutinise hierarchical management techniques. Promote a consistent culture for making decisions and accounting for mistakes. Interact transparently with objections. Facilitate innovation and build up resilience.
Innovation craves space, creativity, rapidity, and flexibility. I can help your organisation to pool your combined capacities and exploit your abilities in order to achieve autonomous management. New possibilities will be opened up to you, along with solutions and practical strategies, and, ultimately, your individual path to the results you desire.
