Make better decisions, faster and with less risk.
The world is uncertain. But there are ways to ensure you’re making better decisions and have the confidence to make the decision with conviction. Even if that is just working out how to minimise the downside if it all goes wrong. If you want to be able to make better decisions, faster and with less risk you need to get more creative to see the whole picture. This training day will show you how.
This training is delivered across 1 full working day. It is split up into 4 mini-workshops and discussions with regular breaks, including 45mins for lunch.

All our training is hands-on, exercise based, conversation generating and engaging. This training day covers The Decision Making Process, Alignment to goals, Decision Fatigue, Assumption Flagging, Fear Reversal, Taking Emotional Decisions, Minimising the Downsides, Group-Think & Biases and Decision Commitment Strategies.
All training resources will be supplied.

- Utilise proven strategies to take decisions that they are emotionally attached to and determine the course of action required.
- Know when to rest, seek inspiration, connect the unconnected, spot biases and not to rely on assumptions or past ‘accepted wisdom’.
