💬 Coronavirus and the VUCA World

Replied to Coronavirus and the VUCA world by an author ( )

Never have I better understood the term ‘VUCA’ than this past week. Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity were at levels I have not experienced before in my place of work.

Thank you Greg for sharing your perspective on the current crisis. My wife has actually stepped up into a deputy principal position this year and it has been intriguing seeing the challenges from both a system and a school level. For her it has certainly been a trial by fire. There is only so much that we can be prepared.

I liked your point about ‘weekyears’:

No doubt, there will be many more ‘weekyears’ like it in the months to come!

It goes with the Lenin quote doing the rounds at the moment:

There are decades when nothing happens; and there are weeks when decades happen.

Good luck with the weeks and months ahead. Stay safe. Thoughts with you are your community.
