Embracing Uncomfortable: Leading Through Uncertainty

This talk focuses on navigating the complexities of leadership during uncertain times and the impacts of ambiguity on decision-making and team performance.  We will also take a dive into what you can do about it in fostering a trust-based team environment and improving adaptability to change.
