What are you going to learn?
To understand the VUCA context
Flip from a VUCA context (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) to a VUCA (Vision, Understanding, Clarity and Agile).
Being a Leader

Draw your Plan of Action
How to generate your vision and turn it into a plan of action
Evaluation & Adjustments
Learn to constantly evaluate your of Plan of Action and correct any mistake as soon as possible.
In this course students will explore the characteristics of the VUCA environment and learn about the abilities and skills necessary to neutralize them.
We will learn to turn this acronym around into Vision, Understanding, Clarity, Agile. This change will guide us to a new perspective that will allow us to find new alternatives that will lead us into the future. We will revise the strategies proposed by Bob Johansen to counteract chaos and start focusing on the future; we will also learn about the skills and competences of the new leader of the future. The first step is to focus on yourself and discover your leadership style and competences.
Throughout the course, we will revise some of the main theories of leadership and empowerment including Warren Bennis and Daniel Goleman. Students will complete different exercises that will lead them in a journey of self-exploration. They will define their vision, identity their objectives, and break them down into specific actions that will allow them to start the path of success. Then, they will bring everything together into a Plan of Action thinking on the timeline and resources that they need to complete the tasks. Finally, they will develop a process of continuous evaluation of the items to determine what actions should be dropped off the original plan, which ones will stay and how and when to pivot if necessary.
