Today’s thought – VUCA

We live in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. This calls for an appropriate response from leaders which, I believe, should include:

  1. Vision and purpose – leaders need to establish and communicate a clear vision and purpose that is inspiring and positive;
  2. Understanding – leaders must demonstrate their connection to others through greater caring, empathy and consideration;
  3. Clarity – leaders should communicate the way forward as clearly as possible and re-enforce the message regularly; and
  4. Action – leaders are expected to take appropriate ‘mindful’ action and to lead from the front in a consistent, ethical and positive manner.

Surprise, surprise, my response is also VUCA!
