Webinar: Leadership and Decision-Making: The Me, The You, and The We

Date: Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm (Pacific Time)


Decision-making is one of the most tangible expressions of power in organizational and community life. Power essentially comes down to "who decides" and "who gets to decide on who will decide."  Choosing wisely whom to involve in decision making is one of the most strategic actions you can take to harness the wisdom and buy-in of the people with whom you work, to deal with unproductive power dynamics, and to level the playing field.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Understand and use a practical five option decision-making framework to facilitate strategic decision-making
  • Conduct a stakeholder analysis to identify key stakeholders and their wins in order to maximally leverage their contributions and buy-in
  • Understand and use a set of factors to consider to determine the maximum appropriate level of involvement of others in the decision-making process
  • Apply the levels of involvement to a genuine work situation and explain their rationale for the level of involvement you chose
  • Articulate the value in seeking maximum appropriate involvement rather than the minimum necessary involvement in a decision-making process
