Attention Worriers: At Last, A Webinar for YOU!

"Don't Worry - Be Decisive!" CDR Leadership Risk Webinar

Webinar Date:  Friday, February 13 @ 11:00 AM CST     

Info below -- space is limited

Many leaders over-think, worry, and delay decisions. This cautious and slow approach can inhibit performance and frustrate others.  Frequently, too much worrying can result in creating unnecessary “CYA” or busy work for staff.  Worriers are known for hesitating when they should be converting ideas into action. They may become overwhelmed when dealing with change.  Worriers may hold back during key meetings due to concerns that they may say something wrong or not have all of the information.

Does your fear of making a mistake or the idea of failure cause you to over-analyze key projects or tasks?  Have you ever been told you were a slow decision maker?  Do you, at times, study and restudy issues, paralyzing progress?

Worriers often feel more comfortable in larger, more methodical environments rather than in dynamic quick moving settings.  While Worriers vet ideas very, very well, their worries are often are overblown and seldom come to fruition.

So, if you are pretty clear that you are likely a “Worrier” by nature, what is the toll of your worrying on your career?  Have you been bypassed for promotions?  Do you feel overworked, frustrated and overwhelmed at times?  Does your worrying impact your overall satisfaction, ability to relax, and joy?

If you have tendencies to worry, over-analyze, or fret too much, this webinar is for you!

How Worriers can derail their own success
Impact worrying can have for aspiring leaders and gender differences
The costs of worrying
The Top Ten Tactics to Fret No More
