How to Thrive in a VUCA Work Environment

Dealing with the Challenges of Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity.



    Course Description:

    The acronym VUCAVolatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous – was coined in the 1990s.

    It describes many people’s experience of their workplace extremely well.

    In this kind of environment, it can be hard to feel like you are coping – let alone thriving.

    That’s certainly how I felt!

    It’s also something that training participants and seminar audiences have been asking me about for years. So I decided to collate the ten best tools and principles I know into a short, sharp course.

    One of the most valuable approaches to thriving in a VUCA world is the Pareto Principle; the 80:20 rule

    The 80:20 rule says that you get 80 per cent of the value from the best 20 per cent of the ideas…

    … when you apply it well.

    So, here is the best 20 per cent.

    Apply it well, and you’ll make a huge difference to your success at work.

    Good Luck!
