Teams are designed to work together. Part of that means making decisions, because teams are supposed to make better decisions than individuals. But when the team doesn’t use a rational process to guide its decision-making, it risks a strong personality leading the members to a bad choice and the others just going along, thinking that they’re being good team players. This 90-minute seminar will take one or more teams through a decision-making exercise and demonstrate the rational method for making good decisions.
