Workshop:  Effective Group Decision-Making & Communicating Strategically

Making group decisions is both an art and science.   It requires flexibility and focus, consensus building and putting a stake in the ground.  Group decisions are difficult because each person brings their own perspective to the discussion.  It’s no wonder groups stall when it comes to getting to a course of action.  How can we improve the way leadership teams, committees and task forces work together and have the right conversations that lead to consensus and action?   This workshop led by Howard Teibel will teach you a methodology for solving the right problem, how to develop a shared vision for success, and engage your teams to have robust and purposeful dialogue.  

Group decision-making also require us to be effective communicators.  In the workshop you will also learn the art of strategic communication and how to develop a key message so that your intended audience gets what they need and gives you what you want.
