The Leadership Advantages of Embracing Anxiety and Lack of Control
September 13, 2011 @ 12:18 PM | By Tonya Hottmann

As managers, we have been taught that we should be able to plan ahead and control outcomes as a result of our well thought-out actions. However, in today's business environment, there are too many variables for this to continue to work. Because the fear of not being in control is difficult for many of us to manage, we often resort to external tools that try to restore control—causing us to feel like we've failed. Learning to live with not being in control may be the new reality.

Join us for our free webinar, The Leadership Advantages of Embracing Anxiety and Lack of Control, on Wednesday, September 21 at 1:00 PM Eastern hosted by Katherine Curran, Ph.D., to learn how to recognize when and how lack of control occurs and how to embrace and thrive in it.

This seminar offers managers:

  • Opportunities to identify issues they can and cannot control
  • Models, mindsets and tools to help them lead their way through this complexity
  • How to tap into the creativity and engagement within their team to make decisions during times of uncertainty
