Dr. Singhi talks about the Effective Leadership to Deal with VUCA World.
To thrive in this VUCA world, the skills and competencies needed by leaders is also changing, this means they should imbibe and convert their current skills and competencies which will help organizations for
- Creating an culture and environment of openness which values discovery, diverse perspectives, and experimentation
• Detecting and identifying the weak signals that predict and foretell changes in customer loyalty, or opportunities enabled by new technology
• Conducting interactive dialogues that put new ideas into the context of the company’s work, and translate new information into differentiating capabilities
Antidotes against VUCA world
Volatility is a phase of nature – speed, volume, magnitude and dynamics of continuous change. In fact this situation is not unprecedented, such situations can be predicted looking at the changes in the environment of the business.
In volatile situations the knowledge of facts and opinions is important, separating facts and opinion, precise and objective communication is the key in this situation. Volatility can only be combated with clear vision. When changes are rapid, employees need to know what’s happening, where they are heading to. A clear cut vision and fact based knowledge of the situation helps creating a pathway.
Let’s take an example of such volatility.
How does monsoon effect the business and Indian Economy?
The Indian economy is highly sensitive to agronomics and so even a slight change in the pattern of the monsoon affects the food prices. An unfortunate delay in the “Great Indian Monsoon” affects cultivation causing food prices to soar leading to inflation in the country.
Investors have phobia towards the inflation. This moody monsoon creates volatile situations in the market and affects agriculture, automobiles, telecom, FMCG, banks, tobacco Companies and cement sectors.
Ultimately this impacts the business situations of an organization.
In the situations of “Uncertainty”, lack of predictability is an issue. There is lack of information, however, such situations bring substantial change.
Vital competencies for Uncertainty are understanding, listening and comprehension. Keeping open mind, listening and receiving appropriate messages from the environment which directly affects the economy and business are important aspects. Dealing with contradictions is of utmost importance as there is lack of predictability.
Antidote for “Uncertainty” is- “Understanding”, rapid changes in the environment requires faster communication, ensuring everyone has the same level of understanding.
Let’s take an example of uncertainty –
What odds would have been given in 2006 on Lehman’s going bust or Merrill Lynch being taken over? Who would have contemplated that a software company focused on video streaming, only founded in 2005 would be bought for $1.6billion in 2006?
Combatting “Complexity” with clarity
Coping with the complexity of today’s business environment is not about predicting the future or reducing risk. It’s about building capability of people, and the organization, to adapt continuously and learn speedily, in order to maximize the chances of seizing fleeting opportunities.
Example of ambiguity in business is very common and usual. In the world of modern business, project or product managers often do not know until their product is finished whether or not it is what the customer wanted. Misunderstood, ambiguous, and assumption-laden statements cause more project and product failures than any other factor
