Leading with confidence and authority: Elevate your decision-making skills

As you advance in your career, the complexity and weight of decision-making can escalate, often carrying the burden of more significant impact. Join Tamara Ghandour for this exclusive presentation, where forward-thinking women in leadership explore the art and science behind effective decision-making. Whether you are at the helm of a department, leading a dynamic team, managing a pivotal project or steering an entire organization, this session promises to arm you with the crucial strategies and mindset required to become a bold and impactful decision-maker.

Ghandour will share three simple but powerful strategies that have catalyzed her career trajectory, established her reputation as a decisive leader — particularly in times of adversity — and enabled her to navigate challenges with greater ease, confidence and authority. Decision-making, much like innovation, is a skill that can be sharpened. Prepare to engage, absorb and be empowered as we invite you to elevate your decision-making capabilities to unprecedented heights. This session will also include time for Q&A, so come prepared to share your real-world challenges, insights and experiences.
