Group Decision Making

Name: Group Decision Making

Number of Participants: 15-25

Time Frame: 1-2 Day Course

Who should attend: Groups or teams who are in decision making positions and want to improve their results

Participants will be able to:
– Understand what impairs our ability to make decisions
– Apply a 4-step “best practice” decision-making approach
– Recognize the powers that influence group decision-making
– Identify the strength of your decision-making style
– Learn how to conduct a consensus-building process

Interactive Simulation Feature: Subarctic Survival Challenge
The Subarctic Survival Situation™ (by J. Clayton Lafferty, in consultation with the Canadian Para Rescue Squad) provides a unique opportunity to quickly and objectively measure whether your groups are achieving a consensus decision making protocol.  The ‘ah ha’ occurs when the interactive efforts of two or more people produce a solution that is superior to their independent solutions. By measuring the quality of both individual and team performance on a single task, this simulation allows groups to quickly calculate the extent to which they are fully utilizing their resources.
