“Coaching in a VUCA World” – Niharika Davar speaks at the World HRD Congress

March 23, 2017

Niharika Davar – Senior Associate | Human Capital Management – speaks at the Silver Jubilee of the World HRD Congress in Mumbai about executive coaching in an ever more volatile, complex, ambiguous and uncertain environment… and in the process she was recognized as one of the 100 Best Global Coaching leaders by CHRO Asia.

Niharika spoke at the World Coaching Congress, one of the sub-events within the World Human Resource Development Congress (WHRDC) framework, about the challenges leaders are confronted with in a VUCA environment and how leadership coaching should respond.

Indeed the ever increasing levels of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity are continuously challenging leaders and managers.

Being aware and understanding this environment and understanding how to handle complexity whilst staying authentic and true to themselves and their leadership styles is key for senior leaders to not only survive but prosper and develop, both as leaders in the organisations they work for but, importantly as individuals in their own right.

The World HRD Congress started 24 years ago. The first edition was held in 1992 and was titled “The great HR Show.” Global HR Leaders from across 13 countries got together to create a global platform to generate unique learning opportunities. There was no internet at that time… the same theme continued for two years. In 1994 the theme changed to Global Managers in Jurassic Park. It was intended to focus on creating learning opportunities to stay relevant.

Over the years the event grew in size and came to be recognised as one of the leading and truly pioneering Human Resources Professionals’ events in the Industry. The aim of the WHRDC is to create a platform to help Human Resources professionals across the world to learn from the leaders and best practices in their field.

The WHRDC for the last 22 years has been presented by Ascent – a brand owned by The Times of India – and 2017 is the year in which it celebrates its silver Jubilee year. The event in February witnessed 208 speakers, 20 Moderators, 90 sessions and award ceremonies. In total 133 Countries participated and over 1400 HR Leaders were part of the silver Jubilee celebrations.

During a successful and well-received event Niharika was also presented with a 100 Best Global Coaches award by CHRO Asia in recognition of her work and leadership role in the field.
