At ISSP we are committed to our offer — providing peer-to-peer connection, learning, and inspiration in support of you, our community, and in support of the important work we are advancing collectively.  Sustainability professionals lead in the face of constant change, complexity, and ambiguity.  Especially now in the age of COVID, uncertainty has become our norm.  Making good decisions with confidence can be quite challenging these days! 


In this interactive webinar, we will learn:

  1. How to create mental space to make good decisions
  2. Common pitfalls of decision-making and how to manage them; and
  3. A process for decision-making that includes asking the right questions; generating, assessing, and testing good options; managing decision-making fails; and using a learning process to keep improving.


For those interested in diving deeper into your leadership growth, join us for a 4-week virtual group coaching experience to help you develop the leadership skills and approaches needed to influence on the job.  We will tackle a different influence challenge every week, as decided by the group.
