The world in which we now live and work is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Local and international forces are impacting every aspect of what we do. Disruption is a constant while new opportunities and a more level playing field are also being created. In this VUCA world, we need to be conscious of what is changing strategically and operationally, the role of innovation and creativity, and the new requirements on leaders to ensure long term business success and sustainability.
As we head to the year 2020, leaders need foresight and vision to deal with the constantly changing landscape being faced. In this context, this second seminar in our leadership series, “Leadership 2020”, provided participants with a unique opportunity explore how leaders can develop 20/20 vision to meet the demands of leading in the year 2020.
