Understanding the Power of Flexible Decision Making

For leaders, changing your mind has always been perceived as a weakness.

But in a world that is changing faster than ever, successful leaders are realizing that the willingness to change your mind is now the ultimate leadership advantage.

In this webcast, you'll learn that being persuadable helps leaders make better decisions, respond quickly to threats and new opportunities, and utilize feedback to improve their skills at an accelerated rate.

Beyond just discussing why you should be persuadable, this webcast will teach you how. We'll discuss the key practices of persuadable leaders that you can use to improve the quality of your business and life.

What You Will Learn

  • How to make more accurate decisions by actively trying to falsify your own thinking
  • Ways to get honest feedback from your team so you can improve yourself at an accelerated rate
  • Tips for adapting to changing circumstances powerfully by "killing your darlings"

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
