Confidence, Fear and Decision Making

During times of uncertainty, crisis and insecurity, it is natural to experience fear. Fear is natural (and normal) during times of radical change from whatever we deem routine. As leaders, it is important to have awareness of how fear is working on us, and to be able to process that fear prior to making decisions. This mental and emotional jujitsu match is the motivation behind the talent optimization podcast produced below on the relationship between confidence, fear and decision making.

 

Leadership Talks

Consider this an intentional pause as a leader to think, and plan through a 40-minute guided exploration of confidence, fear and decision making through the lens of The Predictive Index®. This is an opportunity for leaders to apply personal and team PI behavioral data in building self-awareness and to self-manage in an environment of crisis, uncertainty and fear. It is also important to note I am not here to do the thinking for you or solve your challenges. Look at your data, use your previous PI training, lean into your experience as a leader and think about yourself and the people you are responsible for influencing.
