Situational Mindset Agility


Embrace Uncertainty and Prepare for Anything

Stay ready for today’s dynamic, multi-faceted, and ever-changing business world so that you can make quick decisions that keep your organization moving forward


This workshop is comprised of two 3-hour sessions and targets critical thinking and delivering results for leaders confronting complexity, uncertainty, and opportunity. Using six situational mindsets, you will discover powerful insights to leverage organizational realities to grasp current conditions and craft brilliant decisions to deliver desired outcomes.

Confronting a dynamic, multi-faceted, rapidly changing world requires situational understanding and critical thinking requires new skills in identifying new patterns and recognizing new opportunities, in order to deliver results.

To learn how to adapt to VUCA change, you must discard your existing blinders, and tunnel vision to increase agility and align efforts to achieve goals. Participants will recognize how to apply the six context-based mindset categories to assess real-time conditions and decipher current realities to leverage new opportunities by collecting data to escape potential pitfalls.  Participants determine a road map to capturing situational insights and discovering new solutions, improving leadership performance and employee engagement and delivering results.

The Situational Mindset Agility program provides practical tools to confront complexity and lead change.  To address the accelerated speed of change, participants recognize that they cannot accept the status quo and must adapt and adjust to make timely decisions. Through increased critical thinking and mental agility, participants learn to set smart goals to deliver desired results.

Prior to attending the workshop, you will complete a Situational Mindset Agility inventory to assess your critical thinking leadership styles.
