"How do we navigate, manage and lead in times of VUCA? How do we prepare organizations to deal with VUCA phenomena?"
VUCA has already become an established and often googled business term and acronym. The outbreak of Covid-19 and its consequences are expressions of the VUCA phenomena of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. The global pandemic has made these more tangible for individuals, teams & for all organizations. Dealing with the chaos and the turbulence caused by this unforeseeable dynamic has led to another buzzword - the "New Normal" that requires new answers, approaches, solutions and suitable options for managing change.
In this free of charge online workshop with VUCA expert Waltraud Glaeser (vuca-world.org) and her team of established Organizational Coaches, Consultants and Specialists, we will discuss how business agility, adaptability and resilience can be successfully created for individuals, teams and organizations. We will follow the tenets of collaboration and co-creation to explore a new, positive and constructive way of dealing with VUCA.
Get inspired and at the same time experience an interactive, entertaining workshop format that provides a unique opportunity to exchange experiences and to expand the international community who use VUCA to provide leadership in times of uncertainty.
