Learning Objectives

• Use a set of tools and techniques for reaching agreement that will help you and your group make decisions that everyone is committed to supporting and carrying out.

Reaching Group Agreement

 

Course Description

Your group needs to agree on the best way to complete a task, provide a service, or improve a process. But agreement seems a long way off when each person has a different idea of how to go about doing that. Your challenge is to give all ideas a fair hearing and get the whole team to commit to just one idea, even if it's not everyone's first choice. The payoff is a well-informed decision that benefits from everyone's knowledge, skills, and experience.

 

Learning Objectives

▪ Reduce ideas to a manageable few.
▪ Discuss the pros and cons of each idea.
▪ Select the idea that best satisfies the group's goal and gets everyone's support.

Making Accelerated Decisions

 

Course Description

Making decisions in today's fast-flowing business environment is a lot like navigating white water in a kayak. Not only is the path choppy and fraught with unseen hazards and poor sight lines, but there is little time to ponder an opportunity when it presents itself. Decisions must be made quickly, or those opportunities are gone—swept away in the relentless undertow that is today's business world. You don't have the luxury of waiting for all the information to come in or of trying to make the perfect decision.

 

Learning Objectives

▪ Make quality decisions even when you're pressed for time.
▪ Cut through ambiguity, complexity, and unnecessary information to identify the best decision in the time available.
▪ Rely on your experience, good judgment, and leadership intuition.
▪ Take what's given and narrow your options to a manageable few.
▪ Make a speedy decision and adjust-or even reverse-it later, if necessary.
