MANAGing CHANGE IN a vuca world


We’re living in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous World accelerated by the digital age and, even more suddenly, the worldwide pandemic.  Everything has changed, almost overnight it seems. Everything, from how we do business, where and how we work, the industries our world is built on, and even family life, is now in flux and we are reminded, once again, that change is the only constant in life. How we perceive, adapt to, resist, or embrace change are choices the each of us make every day.  It can be said that change is not merely an important part of life, but instead, is essential to it. To live is to change, and life itself, changes all the time.


Whether we are dealing with changes that have been thrust upon us, or changes that we have chosen for ourselves, we will experience the emotional turmoil associated with losing sight of the familiar and finding ourselves face-to-face with the unknown. Dealing with change isn’t easy, nobody has ever said it is. However, if we take the time to consider the critical aspects of changes we experience, we will emerge from the other side wiser, stronger and better equipped for the next stage of our journey through this world. Embracing change consciously, with determination and grace, builds our resilience, gives us courage and helps us deal with whatever life throws at us next.
