Join Judit Petho, author of the upcoming leadership book Positively Uncertain, to explore how embracing uncertainty can help you succeed.
Life is scary and uncertain at the moment, perhaps more than most of us have ever experienced. Can we fully embrace the ambiguity and thrive on not having a clear set path in front of us?
At this salon, we will look at how people cope with and take advantage of uncertainty. Immigrants and entrepreneurs are really good at it. Those who hop countries, jobs and even careers, those who start new businesses – they don’t follow a set path, yet thrive as they jump into the uncertain. It looks like they have it all figured out when it comes to riding the high waves of uncertainty.
Can you learn to thrive under uncertainty – even if you were brought up to prize good stable jobs, work towards career plans and aim to settle down by a certain age? Are there coping mechanisms you can develop? Can you embrace change as an ongoing feature of life? Is uncertainty the greatest opportunity for growth?
Our answers to these questions raise more questions. I believe that learning to navigate unpredictable times can be a huge advantage in life and there are many of us though who seem to thrive on uncertainty and ambiguity. Is the ability to view uncertainty as a positive the key to continuous growth as a person, well into older age? Is the ability to tolerate high levels of uncertainty a competitive skill? Is it like a muscle you can develop?
Join us to discuss all the above and much more. Bring your curiosity, experiences, fears, and openness. Let’s explore together.
