CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS TO IMPROVE YOUR DECISION-MAKING

 

Leaders hear 'yes' far too often. They don't hear bad news until it's too late. It's an enormous problem for leaders, for teams, for the entire organization. But is it inevitable? Absolutely not. This program shows you how to stimulate dissent and debate to improve your decision-making. Of course, conflict alone does not produce better decisions and improved results. Leaders need to cultivate debate and simultaneously build consensus. 

Through fascinating examples from history, including the Bay of Pigs, Cuban Missile Crisis, and the tragedy on Mount Everest, this program will explore the five myths of decision making; how to foster open debate that actually builds long-term consensus; how to achieve "diversity in counsel, unity in command"; how to move to closure and overcoming the inability to decide; avoiding "analysis paralysis" and other pitfalls. Whether you're a leader or a project team member, this program will help you leverage your team's immense untapped wisdom to make better decisions-and get better results.
