Group Decisions Done Right – Bring more benefits than you can imagine 

There are many best practices in the training and development field – for mentoring, project management, and customer service, to name a few. But did you know there are also best practices for group decision-making?

In this interactive presentation you will learn the key ingredients for making good group decisions: Common Goals, Shared Understanding, Right Process, Helpful Attitudes, and Responsible Actions. Hear inspirational stories about what works (and what doesn’t) and see demonstrations of specific techniques to help groups have better meetings, better communications, and better results.

Do decision-making processes at your organization take unnecessarily long? Are key individuals or even whole teams sometimes excluded? Do participants leave the process feeling frustrated? If you work with groups who want to collaborate better on decision-making, this presentation will provide you with steps you can take to make a positive difference.
