About the Event

The coronavirus pandemic has abruptly reminded us how “VUCA” the future is and will inevitably continue to be. Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity are the realities of today. However, with more danger may come increased opportunity. Leaders must do more than just respond to the whirl of events, they must be positive change agents amid chaos, creating the future. 

VUCA environment requires leaders to possess more complex and adaptive thinking abilities. It also notes that the methods used to develop these new skill requirements have not changed much, and as a result, leaders are not developing fast enough or in the right ways to keep up with the “new normal”. HR and talent management professionals must position their organizations to succeed in today’s turbulent business environment by developing agile leaders. Re-tooling leadership development models can enable HR and talent management professionals to identify and foster the leaders their organizations need now and in the future.

If your organization is to survive and thrive in a VUCA world, you need to rethink the way you develop your leaders. The traditional role of a leader is to anticipate change, identify opportunities, create strategic plans, motivate and direct people, manage risks, solve problems and make effective decisions. However, these tasks are made much more difficult in the current context. Volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous markets demand a different style of leadership, one which actively engages with uncertainty.

To instill this, organizations will have to look beyond on-the-job training, job assignments, coaching and mentoring. What’s needed now is a new approach to leadership development.

The 9th Annual Assessing & Developing High Potentials Summit will share strategies for HR and talent management practitioners to reframe leadership development activities to accommodate the faster-paced VUCA world. Join our high-level speaking faculty as they share experiences from organizations that are seeking a new model of leadership for the age of agility.
