The Better Decisions Intensive will help you transform your workplace, and yourself. Sharing decision-making is sharing the power and is at the core of self managed organisations.
Decision-making moves our organisations forward. Developing shared decision-making capacities with everyone we work with, provides everyone with the opportunity to participate in creating our future together. When we collaborate in this way we’re harnessing the collective intelligence of the entire organisation. The more we practice working in this way, the more we can sense-make together and improve our adaptiveness and responsiveness within our teams and organisations.
The Intensive is a 5-week immersive online course designed to give you the practical tools and knowledge to facilitate your group decision-making.
Working with a cohort, you will learn by doing. With an intentional mix of theory, inspiration, project work, publishing and self-organising, you will Work Out Loud and learn from your coaches and your peers.
In this course you will learn:
- How to recognise and apply appropriate decision-making practices in context
- How to make adjustments to your personal decision-making style in group settings
- How to effectively facilitate group decision-making practice
- How to set up new decision-making practices in your own team
- An understanding of how decision making anchors self management practices and how it is used in self managed organisations world-wide
