Mastering Your Inner VUCA: A Resilience Practice for Personal & Organizational Transformation

Inevitably, VUCA inspires fear and anxiety in every human being. Fear can impair our judgement, slow us down, or even paralyze us completely. The is no way to remove fear and anxiety in transformation work, and in a VUCA world; anxiety always arises in the face of certainty, the very uncertainty that comes with change.

Together we will look at the three part approach to cultivating resilience. 1. Purpose, 2. Practices, 3. Partners. We will explore how to use our values to navigate VUCA. We will understand the key practices to cultivate resilience and will discuss the power of allies in the journey.

Presenter: Eric Kaufmann

Eric KaufmannEric Kaufmann’s earliest professional insight into coaching and leadership wasn’t at his sales role at 3M, nor his Marketing leadership role at Corning. His first job exposure to coaching and leading was when he was a Scuba Diving Instructor at Ocean Enterprises in San Diego, when he was a college student. It’s there that he learned the techniques and values of organizing and influencing people to learn new skills, work together, and venture into the unknown and have a grand time.

For the past 19 years, after leaving Corporate, Eric has been the President of Sagatica, an executive development consultancy. Eric and his crew partner with leaders and teams at companies such as Verizon, SunPower, Dr. Bronner’s, Alcon, and Cymer. He describes his work as an unrelenting commitment to results with an unyielding regard for the human spirit.

Eric’s book, The Four Virtues of a Leader: Navigating the Hero’s Journey through Risk to Results, turns early scuba lessons into teaching the essential virtues shared by successful, passionate, and creative leaders and how they navigate through uncertainty and anxiety. As an Executive Coach, Consultant, Speaker and Author, he partners with leaders to go below the surface and beyond the obvious so they can think more clearly, make better decisions, and relate wholeheartedly. 

Eric is a Fellow and Thought Leader at Harvard’s Institute of Coaching, and a speaker for TEDx. In addition to nearly two decades of coaching leaders, he drawn on management roles at Fortune 100 firms, degrees in business and psychology, thirty years of Zen practice, living in Israel and South Africa, teaching as a Master Scuba Diving instructor, working as a certified hypnotherapist, and meditating in a year-long retreat in an isolated cabin he built in the mountains of New Mexico. 
Eric lives with his wife, two daughters and dog and cat in San Diego, CA.
