Through our partnership with Quantum Edge, we are applying the principles of Aikido to leadership in a VUCA world. We met Chris Thorsen of Quantum Edge several years ago as part of a group of Whidbey Island organization development practitioners. As we talked about what each of us do, we were both immediately interested in combining his work with Aikido and leadership with our work on “Leading in a VUCA World” – a timely and beautiful collaboration. We have had the privilege of playing student as we’ve worked to blend our two approaches. We recently held an all-day session for a group of not-for-profit CEOs, receiving feedback like this:
I found the change paradigm and VUCA to be useful – a little different from others I’m familiar with …. The Aikido principles and practice were wonderful. And Chris’s coaching helped solve a problem for me…. I think this is valuable.
