Visionary Leadership in a Turbulent World: Thriving in the New VUCA Context, is the thoughtful analysis of nine expert authors from around the globe who put VUCA under the microscope and take the reader on a journey that looks at VUCA from a number of different leadership perspectives. Through their research and writing these nine authors seek to provide sense-making and insights that are combined with practical tips and frameworks to help leadership embrace this new VUCA context and learn how to thrive within it. The book suggests ways in which organizational leadership can seek to develop both the self and the organization to systemically and ethically address VUCA with innovation, collaboration, and cultural intelligence, whilst also effectively managing the self with resilience and flow, and supporting everyone in the organization with effective systems coaching. 
Visionary Leadership in a Turbulent World: Thriving in the New VUCA Context, by the collaboration that engendered it, the innovation and research that supported it, and the teamwork that brought it to completion in the midst of real VUCA moments, models the principles and practices outlined in this excellent book.
Business scholars offer a roadmap to operating in an environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) in terms of mindset, skillset, and knowledge-set. Among their topics are ethical leadership at the speed of VUCA, preparing the self for flow-based leadership, change management in a VUCA world, Mary Parker Follett and Margaret Wheatley as systems pioneers in a VUCA world, and strategic systems coaching for leaders in turbulent times.
