Precision Decisions


Decisions ... decisions ... decisions!  You make them every day. In fact, WHO you are today and WHERE you are today is the direct result of the decisions you’ve made up until now.  So just how good are you at making the BEST decisions?  The QUALITY of your life is determined by the QUALITY of the decisions you make — and this program is designed to help you make the highest quality decisions in the shortest amount of time possible.

Precision Decisions is an in-depth exploration of the Path of Self-Discovery and its value in facilitating the decision making process. With its strong emphasis on managing discussions, the program explains how the participants can help themselves and others in making the highest-quality decision in the shortest period of time.

The ChangeGrid® During this module, participants complete an individual “ChangeGrid” — our proprietary diagnostic tool which reveals the level of productive tension each participant is experiencing across a wide range of decision-related activities. Participants also learn several ChangeGrid Maneuvers — techniques for managing productive tension in themselves and others.

Communicating the Decision — Once a decision has been made, the real work begins.  The challenge in effective decision making is not in the formulation of a plan, but the COMMUNICATION of that plan to the individuals impacted by the decision.  This module prepares the decision maker to present the plan in the manner most likely to be accepted and supported by others.
