Trying to make a decision when we don’t have all the information we need can muddle our thinking and cause analysis paralysis. These times of uncertainty are especially hard because we want to do things right and make the right decision, and we don’t know exactly what that might be. And others might be looking at you to lead the way and set the agenda, and you want to show confidence, even if you don’t feel it.

What if you had a plan for navigating uncertainty with more clarity and confidence? What if you were able to eliminate the negative self-talk in your brain telling you that you’d better not fail? Moving quickly from “I don’t know” to “I’ve got this” is do-able and possible.

In this episode, Leadership Coach Deb Elbaum shares the 4 steps that can take you from analysis paralysis to clarity and decisiveness. She walks you through each step one at a time, with examples and explanation, so you can easily apply this strategy to the uncertainty in your life. These steps involve clearing the chatter from your brain, reframing your questions, and setting an intention about how you want to show up. Using this approach to navigating change can help you feel calmer, make decisions more easily, and communicate more confidently.

If you are ready to get your brain out of its mental spinning and paralysis so that you can make some decisions and move forward, press the play button now.
