How to Decide
Remote learning | For our partners' teams

In these fast-moving and ambiguous times, how can we ensure we're smartly approaching the key decisions we're faced with?

"A wrong decision is better than indecision."
Tony Soprano

---

This punchy, practical and energising session is about examining what influences how we make decisions, and equipping ourselves with mindsets and methods to more confidently approach them, and explain how we've arrived at our decisions to others.

By discussing and practicing some fundamental mental checks, methods and proven approaches to decision making; we can lessen the chance of poor consideration, rushing things or spending too long sweating outcomes with low consequences. There's lots we can learn from others, whether pilots or poker players; and plenty of creative approaches to try for ourselves too — from mind-maps to pre-mortems. Understanding our own default styles of decision making is important, as is a willingness to 'try on different hats' and pull in various perspectives to help shed light on the challenges we face.

What we'll cover

• Decisions Vs Outcomes, and how to avoid 'resulting'
• The power of the pre-mortem
• How to clarify our aims
• Consequence Vs Reversibility
• Darwin's dilemma, and how to avoid your own

How this session will be structured

Led by a YCN coach facilitator, we'll work through a series of discussion points and exercises, bringing our own past and future decisions to work with. Expect an energising mix of individual reflection, group discussion and practical application.

Who is this session for?

Anyone wishing to develop new ways of approaching daily decisions, to feel more confident in their approach and to be able to help those around them with the decisions they're facing.
