      Take Charge of Your Decisions, Your Life and Your Business

      Learn the six attributes of Effective Decision Makers and gain the motivation and the skills necessary to move forward with confidence.

      Chances are that those in business - whether for a Fortune 500 company, a family store or a start-up run from your garage - have to solve problems and make complex decisions on a day-to-day basis. To be successful one must be able to explore the full range of options and compare them objectively. To do this, one must be able to think both creatively and analytically.

      • Master the six steps of becoming an Effective Decision Maker.
      • Discover the big decisions that are often missed in day-to-day operations.
      • Think outside of the box using six thinking styles to explore all options.

      • Learn to "compare apples and oranges" (yes - you can and you must).
      • Effectively analyze multiple solutions in situations where compromise is necessary.
      • Take action in the face of uncertainty, with limited information or with conflicting goals.
