Sessions:

Decision Making in an Environment of Uncertainty

The pre-COVID business environment was already experiencing an increased speed of change and level of uncertainty leading to a need for more dynamic planning and decision making. Today organizational adaptability is even more critical to success and long-term sustainability.  This session presents best practices for effective decision making in times of uncertainty and provides concrete steps for becoming more adaptable.  You will learn how to:

  • Anticipate areas of potential uncertainty
  • Develop a disciplined approach for making choices in an environment of uncertainty
  • Make the business case for experimentation


    Mindset Leadership

    Mindset Leadership begins with the question, “How do people experience me?” It ends with increased self-awareness, compelling executive presence, and behaviors that distinguish leaders and teams in positive ways. In this session, you will be guided through introspective and practical exercises in which you will learn how to magnify your authenticity, increase your resilience in the face of challenges, and build strong relationships to elevate your leadership and career. You will walk away with insights and tools to:

    • Identify the values that guide you as a leader and learn how they inform your leadership narrative
    • Strengthen your interpersonal and performance visibility through the development of relationships that matter
    • Assess and enhance your effectiveness in the four elements of resilience
       

    Increasing Your Negotiation Agility

    Negotiating can be challenging as a leader, especially when you care about the outcomes and the other party. Although you want to “win,” you want to be careful to not damage your working relationship. Add to all of this the complexity of negotiating in multiple directions: up the ladder to those whom you report to; down the ladder to your direct reports; and across to your colleagues and peers. How can you prepare to negotiate with all of these different stakeholder groups, while considering emotions, power dynamics, and the culture that influences relationships? In this session, you will:

    • Learn and practice strategies to negotiate more effectively
    • Enhance your communication skills and approach
    • Prepare for your negotiation considering different possible scenarios
    • Integrate concepts of gender and culture into your negotiation preparation
