Edinburgh: Coretta Barry: Ready to be Less Steady? How to survive in a VUCA World
In today’s workplace uncertainty and ambiguity have become the norm. It’s no longer unusual to find people who are successful, high-flying, and in fast-paced organisations, suddenly finding that something has fundamentally changed. Their world has shifted.
This taster workshop explains the skills you need and how you develop in order to survive and thrive in an ever changing, Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world. VUCA environments cause higher levels of stress, frustration and anxiety in many people – the way forward is unclear, roles keep changing and the resulting overload can be over-whelming.
In this interactive workshop, Coretta Barry will share leading edge research and shed light on the most important capabilities and success behaviours for VUCA conditions, and share with you strategies to help you thrive.
