Decisions affecting the environment are influenced by a complex range of interacting factors, overlapping jurisdictions and responsibilities, and lack of certainty regarding outcomes. This workshop will help you develop your capacity to make sound decision and judgements day in and day out. It will help you understand the use of tools that build your resilience, speed and confidence in decision making. Join us for this discussion followed by workshop activities and networking.
