In today’s volatile uncertain complex ambiguous (VUCA) world, it is imperative that leaders are cognitively agile and flexible. Globalization and digitization are two of the foremost phenomena that business leaders are grappling with. The leader’s personality and characteristics must lend themselves to these complex and changing circumstances accordingly. The approach to managing complexity and adeptness at learning, not only impacts the leader personally, but also has a ripple influence across the organization.
