Business leaders today face increasingly complex and ambiguous situations as they try to navigate their way to success. As managers, we have been taught that we should be able to plan ahead and control outcomes as a result of our well thought-out actions. However, in today’s business environment, there are simply too many variables for this to continue to work. Because the fear of not being in control is difficult for many of us to manage, we often resort to external tools that try to restore control – causing us to feel like we’ve failed. Learning to live with not being in control may be the new reality.
