Global agility and intercultural competence
The acronym VUCA, standing for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous, was first introduced after the Cold War to ‘describe a new emerging type of warfare’ and today, it reflects the reality of the globalised world (Codreanu). Whereas ‘complexity’ has been linked with increased mobility of people around the globe resulting in societal changes or simply the burning of frontiers via the intensive use of technology, along with diversity of mental patterns, 'ambiguity' refers to the lack of clarity about how to interpret something - the world now speaks English, but what kind of English? I see any language as a 'tool', and culture as a 'manual' that guides you how to use that tool. In the VUCA world, it often feels like we're using the same tool but in a completely different way!
Intercultural training aims to address these communication challenges. Through an enhanced awareness, knowledge and skills, we can navigate better through today's multifaceted working environment.
