How the Best Leaders Make Great Decisions
As an ATD member, you make decisions all day, every day (regardless of your position in your organization). You and your colleagues are in fact, "Decision Making Factories." Unfortunately, research and experience tell us that most of us have not fully developed our decision-making skills. Why not? Because we have not learned a simple, best practice decision-making process. Dave Jensen will integrate his workforce development research (on 1,029 leaders) and decades of experience teaching and coaching leaders to show you how highly effective leaders (at all levels) make great decisions every day. You will discover practical, well-researched tools that tackle your difficult challenges. Specifically, you will learn how to:
- Avoid the 4 deadly traps of poor decisions
- Access the 'wisdom of the crowd' using 'collaborative conflict'
- Answer the 4 simple, yet profound questions of every great decision
- Apply an easy-to-use decision-making process based on best practices
