The more volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous our working environments become, the more critical a truly agile workforce is to success. In this VUCA world of constant change, our responses to situations decide the outcomes, and all our responses are influenced by our emotions for humans are emotional beings. EQ is a key element in building that trust. Leaders need to not just set an example through the way they act but identify and address issues as they arise. For example, if one team member is feeling frustrated during an Agile transformation, that person’s concerns need to be addressed. Staying agile demands that we develop and use our emotional intelligence (EQ)—a level of sophistication that has never been demanded before. Hence managing our emotions becomes critical in designing desired results. Emotional Agility with mindfulness would be the entrance of EQ to provide flexibility of our emotions when changes occurred in the VUCA project environment for project success.
