The Adam Smith Business School in conjunction with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) are pleased to present the upcoming webinar; Decision making in uncertain times.

The ability to make effective and quality decisions in the workplace is crucial to tackling any form of change, join the discussion for top tips on resilience. There is no doubt about it, life has its ups and downs. We will often have to face unpredictable and unprecedented challenges, but it is how you make decisions and deal with the obstacles presented to you that is most important.

Effective decision-making allows you to open your mind and deepens your awareness of the kinds of problems we face. It often means letting go of old habits and the idea that it is always the role of leaders to supply answers and certainty.

Join us on Monday 14th March, where The University of Glasgow, The Adam Smith Business School and CMI Scotland will come together for this exclusive discussion of decision making in times of uncertainty.
