Leadership Development &
Decision-Making Training (LDDMT)

Decision making is a trainable and infinitely upgradable skill. LDDMT focuses on the hardest form of decision-making: navigating uncertainty and risk-taking. The program, built on 20+ years of refinement, aims to help you unlearn outdated behaviours and promote open communication in teams.

The pressing need now in every organization is for every employee to become highly skilled at decision-making. Those who do this well and continue to constantly train will be most valued in their jobs and poised for organizational success.

What is the Problem?

INDUSTRIAL AGE

INFORMATION ERA

We are living through a time of chronic uncertainty and unpredictable stress. There is no precent for the pace of type of change that we see today. It is effectively 1,000X harder to be decisive and have good judgment when it’s not clear what to do—and more jobs and industries are becoming increasingly ambiguous. This is creating a lot of silence, avoidance, freezing and team dysfunction in the workplace.

The pressing need now in every organization is for every employee to become highly skilled at decision-making. Those who do this well and continue to constantly train will be most valued in their jobs and poised for organizational success.

Two New Skills Are Required of
21st Century Leaders

In today’s fast-changing world, decision-making is the root skill across industries and roles. But with the rate of change, information and uncertainty, it’s harder than ever.

Under stress, we often stick to old habits without realizing it and are naturally resistant things that challenge the status quo. This activates our psychological immune system (ego, fear, silence, etc). This combined with the chronic uncertainty of today’s environment where it’s not clear what to do, creates indecision and freezing.

Unlearning is 2x Harder than Learning

Who is Next Jump?

Next Jump is a technology company, started in 1994 as a coupon business and developed into a successful e-commerce business on a platform called Perks at Work.

But the world started changing and a bigger issue emerged around the role of leadership in organizations. 

Therefore, we built a second business to help transform employees into leaders and leaders into coaches.  It started as a social movement, but the problem grew so big, it became a business.
