Bridging the Complexity Gap: Leading Effectively in a VUCA World In the weeks before September 11, the U.S. Army War College coined the term VUCA to stand for volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environments. Globalization, information technology, economic and political instability, and climate change create a level of interconnection and interdependence that requires a new kind of leadership. Studies by KMPG and IBM[1] identify navigating in this environment as a critical success factor for leaders. The most important resource you have under your control for navigating this complexity is your leadership mindset—the collection of beliefs, values, assumptions and experiences, often unconscious, that inform how you interpret your world and take action.

The essential ingredient for taking a company to greatness is having a "Level 5" leader at the helm--an executive in whom extreme personal humility blends paradoxically with intense professional will. Collins paints a compelling and counterintuitive portrait of the skills and personality traits necessary for effective leadership.
