Making decisions comes with many challenges. Even simple decisions can feel hard and have us worry over them. It only gets more challenging when we must decide with others or for others, in a leadership role.

In this workshop

  • We discuss the main hurdles in our decision-making, as individuals, as teams and as leaders.
  • We emphasize the importance of clarity and communication when leading a team.
  • We discuss the main dangers and sources of conflict when making decisions with others.
  • We detail and practice some concrete tools to help us improve our decision-making and leadership skills.

Intended Learning Outcomes

After this workshop, you will be able to

  • Make reflected decisions, as an individual, as part of a team, and as a leader.
