    Daena Giardella, Senior Lecturer in the MIT Leadership Center at the MIT Sloan School of Management, explains “sensemaking” – the ability to make sense of what is happening in the larger marketplace to discern trends and patterns in complex environments. This skill base is more important now than ever, especially for companies trying to navigate during a tumultuous time under the Trump administration, which introduces contradictory statements and injects chaos, says Giardella. She discusses “sensemaking” in terms of improvisational leadership – honed to help people navigate uncertainty. What lessons can companies and business leaders take from these skills in adjusting how they operate?
