Leadership Decision Strategies

Discover how you (and others) make decisions – so you can achieve your full potential and lead with even greater confidence and strategic purpose.
How You Succeed – What you know, or don’t know about decision-making strategies is crucial to your success! Leaders make decisions on a daily basis. And, people present and speak to leaders in an effort to influence their decisions on a range of ideas and projects. Decision-making strategies are habitual; they are made quickly and primarily at a subconscious level. Most leaders are oblivious to the structure of their own decision making process, but they tend to follow certain patterns. So, imagine the great value when they understand their own decision-making patterns! This knowledge can help them make better and timelier decisions. They can also surround themselves with associates that have different decision-making patterns – to guard against “blind spots”. They can also become more aware of how others make decisions.
What You Will Learn – During this coaching (or training) you will discover and understand dozens of Meta Programs that determine how you (and others) make decisions. What are Meta Programs? They are behavioral filters that manage, guide and direct your thinking. They determine how you make decisions, how you are persuaded, how you communicate and how you prefer to interact with others – all factors that ultimately influence decisions. By understanding these Programs, you can improve your performance, leadership, communication skills, rapport capabilities, and much more. During this process, you will also learn how others make decisions, so you can more effectively lead and influence them to get on board with new initiatives, proposed projects and organizational goals.
