Achieving Leadership System Leverage

Download our Leading from the Center Brochure

The VUCA vortex has already wiped out over half of the Fortune 500 since the year 2000. The secret to survival lies not in discretely transforming organizational structures, systems or processes, but in developing a VUCA-ready leadership system.

The key to avoiding the strengthening pull of the VUCA vortex lies in ensuring organizations develop a leadership system that operates in a perpetual state of readiness for the unexpected. Duke CE believes that the leaders who operate in the middle of the current hierarchical leadership system, or middle managers, are the greatest source of leverage to thrive in today’s volatile world.
