May 6, 2021 What do you do when you cannot see what’s coming at you? In today’s turbulent and unpredictable landscape, you often are asked to make decisions about a future you can neither control nor predict. So, what can you do to step into such a charge with any sense of efficacy or confidence? In these times, it’s so important to maintain perspectives at both scales.

Given what I can see in the larger picture and in the smaller picture, what action will be most useful at this moment? Watch this Live Virtual Workshop to explore your options for taking action when you can’t see what’s coming, but you can see both the trees right in front of you and you know the forest that surrounds you.
