Leading during disruptive and uncertain times would require all managers and leaders to take a closer look at the nearly insurmountable challenges facing their organizations today in navigating the broader political, economic and socio-cultural challenges in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) and the digital-driven era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0).

Disruptive events, including crises such as the current COVID-19 pandemic, have no borders or boundaries and have disrupted lives and livelihoods in all economies globally. They can happen anytime, anywhere, and to any organization—profit, not-for-profit, public (government), or private. The interconnectedness of the global economy and supply chains, as well as the political realities and alliances, can magnify the ripple effect of any single crisis, making it a common feature of corporate life and challenges that leaders need to navigate successfully.
