Decision-making for Leaders

Strategic Decision-making without Analysis Paralysis

Nothing derails progress or creates more maddening logjams than an unmade, half-made or poorly made decision. While most agree about this, reaching consensus on strategic decision-making parameters is an entirely different proposition. By practicing different decision-making methods and with exposure to different decision-making styles, you’ll gain the tools of effective leaders that do it right, swiftly and decisively.

Guidelines ensuring future decisions are the right ones

There are clear, easy-to-understand and easy-to-replicate steps to effective decision-making. The leader’s role is to make them a function of team development. In this lively workshop we’ll look at common barriers as well as ways to overcome them; analyze unilateral, consultative and consensus decision-making methods; and employ a variety of tools and strategic decision-making theories.

To prepare for making future decisions, you’ll examine past decisions with an enhanced perspective and through a far more enlightened lens. With an understanding of the attributes of decision-making methods, you’ll confidently make the right ones without analysis paralysis.
