When things are uncertain, many people freeze, make wrong decisions, or feel overwhelmed. In this workshop, you will practice techniques to stay calm, clear-minded, and adaptive even when things are quickly changing. Skills include how to diagnose and optimize your default style under stress, how to make good decisions (even when information is confusing or limited), and how to create structure when things feel unstructured – for yourself and others. You will leave feeling more capable and prepared for whatever comes your way.
During this workshop, participants will:
