What is needed from Leadership in a VUCA world?

Posted on

In our fast changing global context, there’s a great space of possibilities for how leadership is perceived and exercised, and scope to approach leadership thinking and concepts from different angles. Although traditional leadership and management models still have a place, for us to reach the SDG’s we must enquire into what is now required of leadership – in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, and how we can be part of expressing fitting leadership.   

Two qualities of fitting leadership are relational and emotional skills. Leaders who develop these skills are able to mediate and create safe spaces and honest conversations that can make a positive difference.

When relationships, emotions, values and identities are taken into account, what is thought to be an objective need with a rational solution often turns into a much more complex field. The more we look at these relational and emotional aspects, the more we are able to flex our leadership and managerial styles and contribute to deeper organisational and social changes.
