Workshop Details

Dealing with all of life’s demands and challenges can often feel overwhelming. Like most people, you probably experience the acceleration of VUCA: Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. Living in an increasingly VUCA world takes a toll on your mind, body, and emotions. It’s challenging to feel constantly bombarded by life. Tragically, chronic stress, anxiety, and unhappiness too often become the norm. But have you ever noticed how some people actually seem to thrive in complexity? These people use different mental maps. They have different daily practices. And they exhibit different behaviors. They also happen to be some of the most respected leaders on the planet. Come learn these powerful maps, mindsets, and practices so you can begin to navigate VUCA just as effectively. Getting better at VUCA can enhance major areas of your life including family, career, finances, critical decisions, and social issues including politics, ecology, economics, and community health. Life asks us to face uncertainty head on, with our minds and hearts wide open. Join this workshop to get equipped with the most effective tools on your VUCA journey.
