The acronym VUCA – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous – was coined in the 1990s.
It describes many people’s experience of their workplace extremely well.
In this kind of environment, it can be hard to feel like you are coping – let alone thriving.
That’s certainly how I felt!
It’s also something that training participants and seminar audiences have been asking me about for years. So I decided to collate the ten best tools and principles I know into a short, sharp course.
One of the most valuable approaches to thriving in a VUCA world is the Pareto Principle; the 80:20 rule…
The 80:20 rule says that you get 80 per cent of the value from the best 20 per cent of the ideas…
… when you apply it well.
So, here is the best 20 per cent.
Apply it well, and you’ll make a huge difference to your success at work.
Good Luck!
Dr Mike Clayton
