Episode 15 | Dealing with Stress in a VUCA World
In today’s podcast, Bishop Suriel discusses some ideas on dealing with stress in a VUCA world. What is a VUCA world, you may ask? VUCA means a world full of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.
There is no doubt I think in anyone’s mind in 2020, with the onslaught of Covid-19, that so many people have been affected by the feeling that the world around them has changed dramatically and has become volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous in so many ways. Bishop Suriel on Dealing with Stress
Dealing with Stress | Covid-19
There is no doubt in anyone’s mind in 2020 with the onslaught of Covid-19 that so many people have been affected by the feeling that the world around them has changed dramatically and has become volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous in so many ways. Let us first unpack a little of these four terms.
Dealing with Stress | VUCA
- Volatility has to do with the nature and dynamics of change and the speed with which things change.
- Uncertainty has to do with the lack of predictability, the increasing prospects of surprise, and the sense of awareness and understanding of issues and events (or the lack thereof).
- Complexity has to do with the multiplex of forces, the confounding of issues, and general confusion.
- Ambiguity has to do with the haziness of reality, the potential for misreads, and the mixed meanings of conditions.
