European ‘wickedness’ needs us to be wise not dumb



shutterstock_175682270Walking into work on Friday morning I saw people punching the air in triumphal excitement, while others sobbed. Depending on which way you voted, Brexit is either great news or terrible news.

The truth is far more complex.  The scale and complexity of this issue is so huge that no one can really tell you what the consequences will be. That’s why we’ve heard arguments at both ends of the spectrum: Brexit is good or bad for the economy, good or bad for immigration. The debate has clearly split the nation, divided families and been incredibly toxic with both sides claiming the same future. How is this even possible? It is because Europe is a ‘wicked’ issue.

Europe is not the only ‘wicked’ issue we face. In fact, we are generating an ever increasing list of such problems. We are now living in an ever increasingly unpredictable and uncertain world. Even the bookies, the ‘best’ predictors we have, got it wrong again. The emotional outpourings I saw on the streets this morning are a response to chaos, uncertainty and anxiety. So what must we all do now?

We have to manage our emotional response to the turbulence.


If we can learn to handle ourselves better in VUCA times then we develop the ability to chart a ‘wise’ way forward in the face of such wickedly complex problems.
