The Problem

Are you/your team

hesitant to make strategic decisions,

waiting to commit until more data is available,

avoiding hard creative work?

Decision-making is hard. It's mentally taxing - it's easier to play it safe or not even put yourself out there. But without it, innovation doesn't occur; complacency sets in, and those, who are better trained, outperform you into irrelevance. (When was the last time you went to Blockbuster to rent a movie?)

The good news is that your judgement is trainable and indefinitely upgradeable.

Why Decision Making?

The Most Important Skill of the 21st Century is Decision Making

The world has changed. Where there once was clarity, we are now in the midst of ambiguity.

Regardless of your role in a team, everybody needs to navigate problems - everybody needs good judgement.

The foundation of good decision making is giving and getting the truth. It produces high performing teams, where people rapidly share their authentic thoughts - both good and bad.

Types of decision making
Why it is so hard

1

Strategy & goal-setting

Forward-looking planning and inspiring others

We are all bad at predicting the future. Even worse, we often over-castrophizing negative future outcome or feeling overly optimistic about the future

2

Decisiveness & reaction time

Speeding up decision making

Analysis paralysis is often the consequence when we face with multiple decisions in a day, especially those that are of high stake to us.

3

Risk taking

Making decision in uncertainty

We cannot drive uncertainty to zero, however, we all want minimal risks in all our actions, and hence we are afraid to take risk. Successful risk taking also require understanding 2nd/3rd order consequences and rapid iterations, all of which we are not naturally good at

4

Prioritizing

Fully committing to things that matter

We are often scared of sunk cost and missing out on opportunities. Consequently, we often choose not to make trade-offs and prioritise on what matters vs those that matter less

Where to Start?

Pre-Resiliency Training (PRT)

PRT is a 13-week program (1hr / week) designed to help teams to reduce behaviors that create silence in teams and organizations with each other – and start being more authentic, especially sharing critical feedback & speaking-up about difficult topics.

Research shows that when people bring their authentic self to work, they perform better. But before focusing outwards on sharing our full thoughts with other (”giving feedback”), PRT trains people to focus inward and DIAL DOWN behaviors that are stopping people from being truthful with us.

Everyone needs basic cognitive training to allow truth to come at them. PRT is tailored to help you discover your truth-preventing behaviors and supercharge your TRUTH SEEKING skills

This training, done as a team, will help you navigate conflict, build more authentic relationships.

Showing up as your “authentic” self is the baseline to building meaningful relationships at work... People with a robust social network have better job performance, feel more fulfilled, and even live longer.

"Basically, what I've personally experienced and what I've seen in my PRT groups is that participants develop a more growth-oriented mindset. This mindset upgrades sense and decision-making in every aspect of participants' lives. The highest praise I have for PRT is that my wife says I'm a better husband and father when I'm in a PRT group."
