No one wants to make decisions that lead to disasters. Yet when was the last time your client regretted a decision in the workplace - one that cost money and time, brought about unnecessary stress and conflict, hurt reputation and team morale? After all, the core activity for current and future leaders at all levels is leveraging their resources, knowledge, reputation, and organizational authority into pursuing their organization’s goals. To do so, leaders need to navigate a strategic environment of uncertainty, ambiguity, and change to coordinate multiple stakeholders with somewhat competing interests and differing personalities and thinking styles. All this involves a host of challenging and difficult decisions that require finely tuned decision-making skills. Yet very few reflect on and strive to improve the process by which they reach their decisions – what is known as “meta-decision making.” This is despite the fact that making decisions forms the basis for everything we do in our jobs and in life more broadly, making skills in this arena vital to our success. Even fewer get professional development in improving their decision-making, resulting in a cycle of regrettable decisions and bad outcomes. Fortunately, studies show that training in decision-making, especially ones that integrate both intuitive and analytical thinking into a synergistic whole, substantially improve the quality and effectiveness of decision-making in the workplace by individuals and teams. This presentation draws on research in decision-making and emotional and social intelligence as well as real-world case studies to help you as a coach assist your clients in optimizing the process of decision-making for leaders, teams, and organizations.
Learning Objectives:
•    How to help your clients gain awareness of and escape the cycle of making decisions they and their team later regret in the workplace, and thus avoiding disastrous decisions
•    How to identify a series of problematic thinking and feeling patterns  – what scholars call cognitive biases – that cause us to make regrettable decisions
•    How to take advantage of recent research in behavioral sciences to deal with cognitive biases in the workplace
•    How to combine intuitive and analytical thinking to help clients make the best possible decisions in an environment of uncertainty
•    How to adapt this research to a client's needs through easy-to-use strategies for effective decision-making
•    How to help your clients implement these strategies thoroughly for optimal decision-making processes
•    How to exert influence effectively on team decision-making from any role in the team, while helping maintain trust, engagement, and commitment among team members
•    How to identify the competing interests of multiple stakeholders, especially in a context of uncertainty and transition, and coordinate them to achieving the organization’s goals
