Managing Decision-Making Workshop

What are the types of decisions? When is each type appropriate to use? What are the drawbacks of each approach?

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

The counsel I received from LRI on communication and change management allowed me to successfully lead my organization through critical decision points. My coach helped me ask the right questions and assess whether my organizational capacities matched those required to drive our desired strategies.

I would highly recommend Eric Douglas as an executive coach. His knowledge and experience as a coach were invaluable to me during a critical period of organizational change. He pushed me to ask challenging questions about myself and my organization that led to improved effectiveness. And his guidance was invaluable as I made strategic decisions that took into account the fluid landscape, windows of opportunity, and greater connection and collaboration with other groups.
