Training course overview

Almost every leader feels overwhelmed and worried about not living up to their responsibilities. They are bombarded with emails, meetings, and expectations that are almost impossible to meet. They are experiencing increasing demand from multiple directions, with challenges that do not stop growing in size and scope. They may not have heard of VUCA, but all suffer from it. Leading today, in the presence of VUCA, is the biggest challenge that humans have ever faced. The increase in Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity means that you and your business must seek new courses of action.

This Coventry Academy training course takes a fresh approach to management and leadership to guarantee positive results under changed circumstances. The VUCA world challenges you to find your own way. You will need to understand and develop empathic behaviours, to be more concerned with people and their needs. If our experiences with COVID 19 have taught us anything it is that meaning, and purpose must now take a central role in business activities.

This Coventry Academy training course will feature:

  • Build resilience within their organization to withstand the volatile challenges
  • Adaptive leaders are prepared to take risks and experiment in an uncertain world
  • Staying abreast of current complexities by their dedication to lifelong learning
  • Adaptive leaders use divergent and convergent thinking to make sense of ambiguity
