In today's fast-moving and ambiguous world of work, it's no surprise that we often feel pressured and unfocussed. Hardly the best context for making good decisions.

By adhering to some fundamental mental checks, methods and proven practical approaches to decision making; we can lessen the chance of making rushed or 'wrong' decisions, and the negative feelings and outcomes that can accompany them. Self-awareness of our own natural styles of decision making — and how they relate to others we work with — is also an important place to get to, and to regularly review and refine.

We'll focus on:

• The daily decision-making traps that we set ourselves
• Decisions Vs Outcomes, and lessons from the poker greats
• Practical decision-making techniques.
• The role of growth mindset
• Alleviating feelings of pressure.
• Clarifying aims
• Larks, ows and 'third birds'
