    To our TODN members who attended our April 2017 event “VUCA” Leadership: Leveraging “VUCA Prime” to Thrive in Turbulent Times, you may recall our presenter, Rob Elkington, Ph.D., told us about his upcoming book Visionary Leadership in a Turbulent World: Thriving in the New VUCA Context.

    The good news is the book is now available and Rob has graciously organized a 30% discount for our TODN community. The code is TODN30 and gives a 30% discount when ordering the book. It can be redeemed at the checkout after adding the book to the basket from the catalogue page HERE.

    If you were not able to attend our April event, you too can access the above link for your discount. Also check out our TODN blog where you can access Rob’s presentation HERE.

    Rob offered us significant insights into “VUCA” and challenged us to think and act from a different paradigm as he shared strategies and approaches when working through the lens of “VUCA Prime”. Looking forward to the book to explore, in more depth, the opportunities that “VUCA Prime” presents to us as OD practitioners, to engage with and support our clients in these exciting, complex and chaotic times.
