Integral Immersion to Make a Better Future
.... the VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) is intensifying and virtually everything is becoming either impossible or possible, depending on the leader. Traditional leadership skills will not be up to the task of taking advantage of VUCA forces. Rather, the leaders who make the future will have to be able to do things like flip dilemmas, organize social mobs, and constructively depolarize debates. They need to be Integral leaders who can transcend personal interest, empathize with others, and with nature itself. They need to be clear in their vision and agile on how to get there. Embodying skills of the sort Johansen prescribes is not a surface act, but rather deep work. It requires flips in consciousness – starting with the primal flip of leadership: from coping to transforming.
