    • Confronting deep uncertainty
      Leaders often make common errors as they make strategic decisions about the future: they either under-predict or over-predict change. But, why do they do it? Most of us find uncertainty uncomfortable, so we are reluctant to confront it. We can’t solve for a future uncertainty, but we can prepare ourselves to think critically about signals and decisions – to understand all the dependencies that might impact the future. In this master class, learn how to deal with complexity and confront deep uncertainty to make better strategic decisions. Then hear from some young entrepreneurs from the Forbes Under 30 community on how they deal with uncertainty in their ventures.
