Managing Decision-Making Workshop

What are the types of decisions? When is each type appropriate to use? What are the drawbacks of each approach? Decision-making is one of the most important things that a leader does – and one of the least understood. Participants in this workshop learn how to define different types of decisions and some of the common assumptions that lead to poor decisions.

Using tools and exercises, participants learn:

  • The five types of decisions
  • The three levels of delegation
  • The role of assumptions – and types of assumptions
  • When consensus is appropriate – and how to achieve it
  • Techniques for making tough decisions
  • Multi-lateral decision-making involving independent entities

Audience:
Leaders, managers, supervisors

Length of workshop:
2-4 hours

Materials provided:
Workbook, password access to online tools

LRI helped us experience a real change in the way that we do planning and resolve problems. It made it possible for us to say exactly what we wanted to say, and for others to hear exactly what we said. Looking back, I wonder why we didn’t do this before.

Sacramento Ballet

LRI is outstanding! Eric Douglas led the Sacramento Ballet through a challenging project of developing its first-ever comprehensive written strategic plan at a critical junction in the history of the organization. Eric’s leadership skills were superb as he worked to enlist the support of all stakeholders and facilitated discussions that allowed the organization to put into words its hopes and dreams for the next several years, while helping the project team remain focused on keeping the objectives realistic, achievable and measurable. I highly recommend LRI without any reservation.
