Adaptive leaders in VUCA world should never stop learning and developing. With glooming uncertainty and unpredictable change, they require a new leadership mindset and should be ready to work continuously to hone their adaptive skills.
Intercultural training and deep coaching can play a major part in developing adaptive leaders in any organisation working in a VUCA environment:
- Agile coaching helps leaders to reflect and examine their current approaches to leadership. Through this approach individuals’ levels of openness, resilience, attitudes to change and ability to work with multiple perspectives are developed. This transformational process enable leaders to focus on the critical skills they need to develop and practise flexing their current style.
- Intercultural training focuses on building self-awareness, understanding multiple perspectives and adapting behaviours in unfamiliar environments. This can be useful in the pandemic era as leaders need to be more adept at managing internal tension, making decision and problem solving creatively in a very unfamiliar territory.
- Learning to understand different culture can also spark new awareness on how leaders listen and expressing their intentions. These communication skills are essential and can enhance the adaptive ability to engage multiple stakeholders in a turbulent change environment.
