In The Matrix the human race had been reduced to little more than a power source for the machines, living out our ‘virtual lives’ in a programmed world created as the ultimate system of control. By taking the Red Pill Neo chose to break the chains that kept him in slavery. He chose to live as a free man in the real world and he chose to make it his mission to free as many other minds as he could.
In recent years the USA military realised that the world they operate in has changed and they needed to change with it. To explain the changed world they use the term VUCA – volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. As CEO’s and sales leaders we need to change our mode of operation. We need to equip our organisation and our people to deal with this new environment so they could respond in ways that were appropriate to the situation.
