VUCA worldwide smart

Today’s world is changing at a pace we’ve never seen before. Watch the news for just five minutes and you will see a changing and uncertain world. Take a look at the technological challenges. Twenty years ago, no one would have believed that the advent of the smartphone would change the way we interact with each other.
We refer to this as a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world.
Positively, we can reach every corner of the world digitally, share ideas, and discuss the positive options of VUCA.


Bennu Community


We live in the VUCA world, an acronym to describe or reflect on the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of general conditions and situations. In this world, we are facing lots of changes constantly.

The Bennu Community is a place where you can build supportive friendships and gain connections that can help you with struggles related to your change experiences in your life and finding opportunities to cope changes in a better way.

It's VUCA - the film

IT’S VUCA is a movement from the USA.
We live in an age of crushing change and uncertainty that bombards us with volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity, fear, anxiety – and distrust. There is a name for this: IT’S VUCA.
VUCA isn’t just the problem…it’s also the solution.
The future is moving faster than we think, and as we learned in 2020, 2021 and 2022, the world is not prepared for it. The goal is to transform the world from negative VUCA to positive VUCA.
The film “It’s VUCA” by American director Chris Sean Nolan is a journey to discover the answers to what you are going through – helping you overcome overwhelm and succeed under conditions of VUCA NOW and TOMORROW.

Waltraud Glaeser was in conversation with Chris Sean Nolan (Multiple Emmy Award-winning writer-director) and Mike Schindler (Award-winning author, US Navy Veteran, One of the US nation’s foremost experts on veteran issues ) about VUCA.

The Great Conversation

Ron Worman is the Founder and CEO of The Sage Group® and The Great Conversation. Over the last 30 years The Sage Group has been helping companies build and execute a ‘value’ strategy that leverages their internal and external relationships.

The premise of a great conversation is that ideas will change the world. Harnessing the ideas and then discussing their practical application can change market ecosystems. Innovations within market ecosystems will change leader’s strategy, planning and execution plans.

People perform roles in a process using technology. They are organized and managed. And in the best companies they are led to a greater purpose.


The Great Conversation

We have a great conversation around helping leaders “return to curiosity” about themselves, the others around them, and their impact on their companies and the world. We come away with a positive substitution for the VUCA acronym: Vision, Understanding, Clarity, and Adaptability. And that is a worthy starting point for leader’s growth, personally, professionally, and within the context of their business.

We have been pursuing the guides that can help us be better leaders in this VUCA world, and we found another in Germany: Waltraud Glaeser.



Luckily it's only VUCA

In mid-November 2021, despite Corona, we managed to bring VUCA to Mauritius.
Waltraud Glaeser held a half day workshop on the topic “Luckily it’s only VUCA” with HR and service executives of a large hotel chain from Mauritius.
Together with our local partner, Kesho Gooriah – Managing Director of “Soft Skills Mauritius“, the workshop was prepared and conducted.

The participants got an impression of what VUCA means in their environment and how further collaboration could look like.
In the very close-to-nature camp “Domaine de Lagrave”, everyone was involved with a lot of fun and commitment.

Navigating in a VUCA World

In November, Waltraud Glaeser conducted a one-day online workshop on the topic
“Navigating in a VUCA World” with a major organization from Riga, Latvia.
After an introductory lecture, the following questions were addressed in three break out sessions:

– WHY: Create awareness! Why should you be aware of the VUCA impacts in context of your Leadership?

– HOW: How did you handle VUCA impacts on your Leadership so far?

– WHAT: What changes are required and how to approach them?

Waltraud Glaeser conducted a similar one-day online workshop on “Navigating in a VUCA World” with an internationally active company from Finland.
After an introductory lecture, questions based on Simon Sinek’s “Golden Circle” were addressed in three breakout sessions.

What is VUCA? An adventure journey in search of a definition

Waltraud Glaeser was asked to write an article on VUCA for a major New Zealand journal to be published next year in 2022:

VUCA is on everyone’s lips. It is the subject of corporate strategies. Moreover, an entire consulting discipline has formed around this term. However, what exactly VUCA is remains fuzzy. Attempts at definitional delimitation are often limited to the resolution of the acronym.

The article will highlight the following aspects:

  1. What is VUCA? – An adventure journey in search of a definition extracted from various sources. In the process, characteristics of the definitions will be crystallized.
  2. This is VUCA – a proposal for a definition based on the findings from the first chapter.
  3. How to apply VUCA – the experience of decades advises companies on how to deal with VUCA.

Empowerment by Agile Teambuilding

An international company based in Switzerland is in the process of optimizing the current leadership style of their teams:
Empowerment through Agility & Self-Organization, because a learning behavior is needed that can deal with high speed of change, high uncertainty and high interdependencies in a complex environment!
VUCA requires a realignment of leadership and communication: the increase in volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity requires the company to align itself differently and to ensure good results with new leadership behavior under changed conditions.

Waltraud Glaeser facilitates this journey towards purpose, alignment and commitment by gaining self-organization, empowerment and role clarity. The managers of various teams have been prepared for this shift in mindset and paradigms digitally, but also in face-to-face workshops.
A facilitated and moderated process was set up together, following the taylorized principles in the idea of Scrum logic to create value (tackle complex adaptive problems, proceed iteratively and collaboratively, learn through experience, act self-organized, challenge each other, reflect on gains and losses, continuously improve).
