Our coaching and facilitation support group decision-making using structured workshops that enhance creativity and collaboration, manage conflicts and complexities, identify and clarify ambiguities, and achieve the desired results in less time and effort.
When tailoring workshops for a team, we work hand in hand with each individual team member to understand their points of view and priorities. This will allow us to prepare the workshop structure and develop effective framing to discuss issues and problems. The streamlining of the workshop will allow effective collaboration and out-of-the-box thinking to identify potential options and scenarios, reach agreed-upon solutions, and develop implementation plans.
Our individual decision coaching sessions help decision-makers manage uncertainties and complexities, identify and clarify ambiguities, define and properly frame issues, and simulate and assess potential outcomes of solution options.
When planning workshops with individual decision-makers, the techniques may include management style assessment, game theory, simulating the effect of stakeholders, and identifying the most effective methods to collaborate with the individual.
