The term VUCA is an acronym coined by American soldiers at the end of the year 90 to define the world in which we lived. This term is now mentioned by all business gurus, to describe the essential characteristics of the business world.
VUCA is composed of the initials of 4 words to define the world in which we live today:
Volatility. Everything changes at an ever faster pace, situations are volatile, unstable. El cambio es permanente en nuestras vidas y en las empresas: reestructuraciones, mergers, cambios culturales, etc..
Uncertainty. Today's world is uncertain. We do not have certainty and security about nothing. Uncertainty about our future is full. Nobody knows what will happen in a week, or within a month.
Complexity. Las situaciones son cada vez más complejas para estar focalizado o para tomar decisiones. There is much information overload and stimuli, plus global connectivity, which complicates the most of our world.
Ambiguity. Today's world is ambiguous, there are no absolute or unquestionable truths about nothing. The circumstances and decisions can be approached from very different points of view.
In this world VUCA tools we need if we keep calm, with mental clarity to make better strategic decisions, with emotional balance to handle the constant changes, and to live with ambiguity.
mindfulness (Mindfulness) this is, in my personal experience, a powerful tool for managers and professionals business to take forward more effectively and creativity VUCA the world in which they are immersed. Why?
Volatility. Mindfulness is a mental and emotional training that is based on focusing attention on the present moment with an attitude of curiosity, and acceptance opening. The changes we generate anxiety, because we are very rigid. However, through the practice of mindfulness work acceptance of things as they are, although we do not result pleasant.
Uncertainty. Mental curiosity that achieved with the practice of mindfulness meditation leads us to be more open about uncertain situations. A curious mind is an open mind, seeking always learn from everything, instead of being afraid of everything. Fear and stress closes our mental capacities. Curiosity and not be a slave of our prejudices and expectations opens our mind. The mindfulness training our mind to avoid being dominated by those mental habits (judgments, expectations, wishes).
Complexity. A complex world needs creativity. Mindfulness practice, according to numerous scientific research, It makes our brain to descend alpha and theta waves, which they are associated with a heightened state of receptivity of our mind, maximum relaxation and maximum creativity.
Ambiguity. A trained mind to not be swayed by the judgments, prejudices and conditionings of the past is better placed to deal with ambiguity and take advantage of it, in order to make more innovative decisions. El entrenamiento del mindfulness nos libera de la visión estrecha y condicionada que normalmente tenemos, often it makes us face new challenges with old formulas of the past, they have probably become obsolete.
