VUCA World wants VUCA Leadership

VUCA-World

Our global digital world is characterized by

  • Volatility
  • Uncertainty
  • Complexity
  • Ambiguity

VUCA-Leadership

Leadership therefore should be characterized by

  • Vision
  • Understanding
  • Clarity
  • Agility

Todays requirements are: quick response times, maximum stability, strong and trustful relationships, risk and error management, transparency and networking. With this background, todays leadership mission is a transformational one.

What does that mean? The fundament for successful leadership in a VUCA-World

  • Vision – a shared vision which is worth striving for
  • Understanding – for each other & listening to understand in the sense of Theory U
  • Clarity – internally & externally, combined with transparency in communication
  • Agility – in mindset, behaviour and actions

Stiff structures and separated silos have outlived themselves. Organisations today do function differently. Leaders no longer are the centre of know-how for their teams. They can and may utilize their network for the creation of value. The benefit: they relieve themselves and motivate their teams and network-partners, as being in demand strengthens self-confidence, self-assurance and engagement.

At the same time the organisation is required to aim for transparency and knowledge-sharing. Only by that it is possible to manage complexity and secure future viability. Employer branding, employee satisfaction and success are substantially determined by these factors.

And not only the organization wins by networking and transparency, but every individual: sharing competency and knowledge is fancy, makes us sympathetic and interesting. Both fosters a positive professional development.

The Future of Work is agile. How agile are you?

Share Responsibility – Let Dynamic win

There are very many of Agile Working Concepts out there, just to name one of them: SCRUM. It’s a master piece of demonstrating Speed, Adaptation, Dynamic, Flexibility, Trust, Networking and Self-Organization.

Sharing responsibility is key – more bottom up vs. Top down approach. In the agile world teams determine the task and take responsibility leading them on their own. Motivation & Engagement are a result. This is to not to be neglected! Teams want to perform successfully, this is a human motivator:  Once you have freedom to perform, you will give your best!!

In this context as well, as a leader you are permanently in the spotlight and are observed like a star by paparazzi: In your organizational function and also as a person with your individual charisma and appeal.

In parallel, you have multiple functional, strategic and personal challenges to cope with. In times of permanent change, the development of trend-setting visions is part of it as well as convincing communication of targets, significance and benefits and also the serene and motivating leadership through change situations.

Management is history. Todays need is Agile Leadership Excellence

As a leader you have to shine like a lighthouse and at all times have to think & act agile: like a role model. Leader = Lighthouse.
