What Are The Problems?

#1 Challenge in the Workplace Today:

PEOPLE ARE NOT PRODUCTIVE

The Problem: Decision-making got more challenging

How it’s showing up in organizations today

We Are Experiencing a 100-year change

Any company designed to succeed in the 20th century is doomed to fail in the 21st century.  

History is helpful as there are patterns and inflection points where what has worked, no longer works.  Even in the 20th century—large rules and process driven organizations succeeded by requiring compliance and conformity.  In the 20th century, the new markers of success are creativity and collaboration.

There is no precent for the pace of type of change that we face 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, or work in the “dark”. Looking ahead, we will outsource all the ”light” work that can easily be repeated or automated with AI.

LEADERSHIP + DECISION MAKING TRAINING (LDMT)

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 The program, built on 20+ years of refinement, aims to help you unlearn outdated behaviours and promote open communication in teams.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.

We discovered an important precursor:
unlearning your automatic, defensive behaviors.

These are expressed through things we do that make it harder for other people to tell us the truth, shut down our brainpower and cause us to fall into the same thought patterns even when a situation needs the other side.

95% Consistency + 5% Intensity

95% consistency

To change as leaders, we need to change ourselves, but we are in a battle with our automatic. 90 to 95% of our decisions and behaviors are being shaped non-consciously by the emotional brain which means that decisions mirror our psychology. (Stanford)

Consistency is key for lasting change. 90-days is deliberately chosen as it takes this long to form a new habit. Training is deliberately 1-hour a week to fit within busy schedules.

5% intensity

Intense 2-3 day training experiences are paired with our 1.5 years of weekly curriculum to create powerful experiences and bring teams together more authentically.

Our Training

In-Person Training Events

Intense 2-3 day training experiences usually timed as kickoff’s and paired with consistent training programs depending on level. The curriculum is complementary to our 1.5 years of weekly curriculum to create powerful experiences and bring teams together more authentically.
