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.
