Leading in the VUCA world
Working life is becoming more complex and uncertain. Change is happening at an ever increasing speed and this put added pressure on leaders, managers and their teams. There is now a word for the world that we are living and working in VUCA: an acronym for volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.
This can put added pressure onto today’s leaders. Faced with so much changing information decision making can become overwhelming and stressful. This is why so many successful leaders work with a coach
Why coaching for the voluntary sector?
