“We selected LSA Global over five other potential partners to help take our company’s decision making capabilities to the next level as we look to continue our growth trajectory. My leadership team was skeptical at first, but LSA’s ability to work with us at the strategic, cultural, and leadership levels exceeded our expectations.

Strategic Decision Making Training Description
Executives and their teams face an avalanche of choices clamoring for action and attention. Good decisions are well defined, made efficiently, and communicated in a way that creates lasting commitment. When organizations build better decision-making habits, they enable increased engagement, higher performance, and decisive actions.

Decisiveness starts with understanding the type of decision being made (strategic, operational, tactical) and identifying who is best positioned to make and be involved in the decision-making process.

Strategic Decision Making Training Learning Objectives
This customized decision making training program focuses on providing the knowledge, skills, and tools to consistently make high quality decisions.  In this highly interactive decision making workshop, participants move real work forward, make real-time decisions, and receive expert coaching and peer feedback.

The key objectives are to build better decision-making habits by learning how to:

  • Clarify the decision to be made and the desired outcomes
  • Follow a consistent and flexible decision making process
  • Define effective decision-making criteria and success metrics
  • Unlock stakeholder and team commitment
  • Act decisively and avoid common decision making traps and biases
  • Communicate decisions for greater commitment and buy-in

Benefits of Better Decision Making by Design
The more complex the decision and the higher the stakes, the more important it is make the right decision in the right way.  When organizations apply thoughtful decision-making, it allows teams to cut through complexity and reduce what one client calls “organizational churn.”

Improved individual, team, and organizational decision making:

  • Creates shared accountability for decisions
  • Removes complexity and inconsistency from decision making
  • Reduces unintended consequences and the need to re-make failed decisions
  • Increases capability in managing and making decisions with multiple stakeholders
  • Engages and inspires those who need to implement the decisions
  • Improves the quality and speed of strategic and tactical decision making

Target Audience:
Individuals, teams, leaders, and organizations that want to make better decisions faster.

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings and selected LSA’s 12-month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While other programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.
