Managerialism is a truth discourse with a particular moral logic about how the world works. Through this lens, it is only trained managers/leaders who are considered able to speak that truth.
In a rapidly changing ‘VUCA’ world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous), this is an out-dated concept. I believe that the key to solving VUCA problems, everybodylism rather than managerialism is needed. In this context, leadership is about helping people make sense of complexity and ‘stuckness’ by harnessing the collective intelligence of groups through collaborative conversations.
