One of the fundamental aspects of working in more agile ways is realizing that there are real limits to what we can predict and control while we all contribute to building a more complex world. Instead, we need to learn to look around and make meaning of what we see. And we need to do that both individually and together. That will take more time than we’re used to – and thus feel uncomfortable. So our anxiety goes up. When that happens we need to become good at co-regulating and providing social safety to each other. We need to see beyond dollars and cents to become scholars of sense. Then, we are able to steer our way through uncertainty together. That is what greater agility is about in work today.
