It is hard enough to work with the pace of change and level of complexity being so high. Add to that serious turbulence and you got a “recipe” for serious stress and significant reduction in high quality productivity.
 
To get through the turbulence and come out stronger on the other side is not easy but it is possible. In this session we talk about why turbulence reduces our ability to make proper decisions and give you ways to fight ingrained biases. From there we will discuss techniques you can use to help work through the turbulence and continue to make decisions, effectively communicate, execute with precision and deal with the stress.
