How to Make Better Business and Personal Decisions

HRDQ-U Webinar | How to Make Better Business and Personal Decisions

60 minutes

Everyone makes decisions. You’ve already made dozens to hundreds since waking up today. Decision-making and problem solving are important business skills and essential life skills. But when we’re faced with the occasional “big” decision, we often become tentative. We dither, over-analyze, procrastinate.

Join training expert Dr. Robert Vaughn as he will give you an understanding of how people make decisions and some important tips to help you make better, more efficient and more effective ones. You’ll learn about finding or creating useful options and how to narrow these down quickly to focus on the most viable. We’ll also cover some of the human aspects, such as whether a group decision or individual decision would work best for a given problem. We’ll end with a few ideas about getting buy-in on your decision so you can implement it effectively.

  • Describe an effective system for approaching complex decisions
  • Use some simple creativity techniques to develop viable options
