The rapid exchange of information, commodities, even people in this global era has created an interconnection and interdependence between nation states and local elements around the world. Apart from promising opportunities for development, this complex and rapid global network raises new challenges in the form of a climate of uncertainty which is termed the VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity) climate. Pesantren, as one of the oldest classical learning units in Indonesia will inevitably face this too. One of the most important preparations is by building leadership character to withstand the challenges caused by VUCA climate.
