This workshop is part of our Leadership program. It can also be taken stand-alone.

Study after study has shown that the most effective organizations make clear, well-informed decisions quickly and are able to put those decisions into action with the minimum of fuss.

Unfortunately, most companies accrue complex coordination and decision-making patterns over time as they scale. This general collaboration problem is one of the most common sources of productivity issues. As time passes, it becomes a relentless source of low morale.

Attacking the problem requires both an understanding of and an appreciation for strong ownership, clear accountability and the importance of decisive group-decision-making conventions.

In this workshop, you will...

  • Acquire a common baseline definition of the four basic types of collaborator (RACI)
  • Understand why strict accountability is key to solving 'the collaboration problem'
  • Learn about the anatomy of a decision and ground that learning using key decisions from your own past
  • Ramp-up your facilitation skills to make sure you can help to foster an inclusive, positive discussion when decisions need to be made
  • Explore models for crystallizing a shared understanding of a situation and building playbooks to help with future decisions (MCDA, etc)
  • Consider the role of both logical fallacies and cognitive biases in group decision making
  • Learn about a model for driving speedy decision-making and escalation (RAPID)

The workshop was a great foundation in the mechanics of decision making. It was well organized and had great material. The most impactful parts were around slowing down and thinking about criteria, stakeholders, and reframing the problem statement.

The workshop provided a valuable framework and considerations for decision-making that you can apply to both your personal and professional life. The facilitators were really personable and fun - with relatable examples. The biggest impact for me was determining which type of decision process to use for which decision.

I found your workshop to be informative, helpful, and energizing! I normally dislike going into these kinds of workshops, but now I'm a convert. You set the bar so high. I especially appreciated how you seamlessly engaged with the audience over zoom chat and found ways to have us speak with each other in the break out rooms.

I hope we can work with you in the future. :)
