Asking "What do I/We Want?" in Response to VUCA
AMBIGUITY is the fourth and final aspect captured in the acronym VUCA. Ambiguity can definitely feel risky. Our brains are wired to be vigilant to threat. That has been key to our survival throughout evolution. It can work against us now.
Aspirations are your vision for what you want to create, realize, or achieve. Clarifying your Aspirations is a tool for responding to the "threat" of VUCA as you consider and plan for the future you are striving to create.
Aspire--we think of it as a state of wanting--better, more impactful, expanded. Aspiration is, quite literally, breathing. Just as we are hard-wired to be vigilant to threat, we are also designed to keep breathing without (most of the time) any conscious effort. Aspiration is key to our survival, every minute.
We all aspire to different things.
Sometimes the fact that we want different things is a source of conflict, complaint, and dissatisfaction. The Empowerment Dynamic offers a way to shift from the drama of a problem focus to the sustainable results possible when we adopt an outcomes focus.
