In today’s flatter organizations, employees who can make sound decisions quickly have the power to significantly reduce their organization’s costs and enhance competitiveness. This course helps employees master a systematic approach to making better—and faster—decisions that will result in more effective performance. Participants will learn why people sometimes have difficulty making good decisions, are afraid of making the wrong decision, or have difficulty knowing what to do when they realize they have made the wrong decision and what to do to overcome these issues. Learning to follow the steps in a structured decision making process, in making both complex and easy decisions, will increase every leader’s confidence and competence.
