Why leading in ambiguity is the new norm
College and university presidents are now leading in a world of ambiguity. This brings new challenges and opportunities in higher education. Presidents who can adapt with agility in this ambiguous world will create the new normal for leaders and institutions of the future.
Indeed, today’s president must have a unique set of skills that enables them to lead in this volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world with a skillset and mindset willing to learn, unlearn and relearn. We are educating a generation of young people for jobs that do not exist to solve problems that have not been identified, utilizing technology yet to be created.
