Adapting Your Strategy in Uncertain Times: Learn about the tools and approaches to help you reflect, review and sharpen your ideas in a VUCA environment.

Do you need to adapt your thinking to accommodate this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment that we all do business in now? Some would argue that to ignore it is to put your head in the sand. 

Even in traditional businesses an understanding of this VUCA world and the risks and opportunities that may emerge is important in developing strategies.  
You will be introduced to a variety of tools and approaches to help you reflect, review, appreciate & sharpen some of your ideas to be better placed for the future.

The webinar will cover:

  • An introduction to the changing business context and how it might impact you, your strategy and your business

  • Recognising and appreciating more effective leadership styles for these changing times; what works and what doesn’t

  • Key insights, advice and tips on leading in a VUCA world and the impact on your strategic thinking

  • Q&A session

Who should attend?

Business owners, managers or leaders who are keen to develop strategies and leadership approaches that are future proofed: robust, flexible and responsive to change. This webinar is aimed at SMEs.

Please note that preference will be given to businesses based in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire for this webinar.
