Headspring Virtual Masterclasses

Leadership Skills Series: Decision Making

Learn techniques and different decision-making criteria, depending on the context of the decision you have to make.

A Methodology for Decision Making

A company’s trajectory is the result of key decisions that are taken. But not everyone feels comfortable making decisions, let alone knowing how to make good ones. The reasons may be a simple lack of training or there may be emotional and psychological blocks in place. 

Join us for a virtual talk led by Adam Kingl, business educator and author of Next Generation Leadership, to debate these and other questions and understand what good decision making means for your business and your teams.

What you'll learn:

• What criteria to use and when to use them.

• Instinct versus data – one or the other or both?

• Decision-making dynamics in teams.

• Great habits to develop in your personal or team decision making.
