It is commonly believed that leaders now need to operate within an environment which is best described as VUCA (Volatile, Complex, Complex and Ambiguous). All the forecasts are suggesting that VUCA is going to stay with us for the foreseeable future (if there is still such a thing as a foreseeable future in the VUCA world).
Recent advances in neuroscience have found that our brain continually changes throughout our adult life. This has not been a surprise to many psychologists who have theorised, for many decades, that we continually change and develop throughout our entire life. These include psychologists such as Abraham Maslow, Clare Graves, Robert Kegan, Elliot Jaques, Jane Loevinger, Bill Torbert, Lawrence Kohlberg and Susan Cook-Greuter.
