Despite ongoing uncertainty and the global challenges, we all want to continue to thrive, both at work and at home.

As we head into September, a kind of new year, with people returning to work and school, exploring new job opportunities, re-evaluating organizational culture, and pursuing avenues for growth, there is a whole new host of decisions that need to be made. 

In order to be high performers and create value, we need to be active, rather than passive, in our decision-making. 

How can you ensure you are prepared for this pivotal moment?

Join J.P. in a powerful conversation with Ivan Joseph, Motivational Speaker and Vice-Provost, Student Affairs at Dalhousie University, to learn how to use this transition period as a time of reflection to ask the right questions, set goals, and lead with confidence.


  • How to build the habit of making active, solid decisions, even in the midst of change
  • Why it is important to involve people (peers, direct reports, mentors) in the decision-making process
  • Strategies to get more perspective - understand what is important, what is missing, what is your role
  • How to build your team's confidence to close out the year on a high note by playing big, not small
