Deciding with Others - Decision-Making for (Future) Team Leaders (K02-26)
Verfügbarkeit - Anmeldung möglich
Making decisions comes with many challenges. Even simple decisions can feel hard and
have us worry over them. It only gets more challenging when we have to decide with others or for them, as team leaders, managers or in a consulting or expert capacity. Also, a leader usually needs to delegate decisions while being accountable for the results and this can produce its own tensions.
In this workshop we will discuss the main hurdles in our decision-making, as individuals,
as teams and as leaders. We will also describe and practice some tools to help us improve our decision-making and leadership skills. Among other things, we will talk about:
- Emotions around decision-making (worry, procrastination and avoidance).
- Cognitive biases in decision-making.
- “Your call”: transitioning from student to leader.
- Decision-making in teams:
- The importance of guidelines and priorities.
- Clarity and accountability.
- The dangers of groupthink and HIPPOs.
