Decision-making has become more challenging in today's information age, impacting work environments across industries. We have spent the past 10 years unpacking the building blocks of decision making into key foundational skills that can be trained in just 1-hour a week with results in as soon as 13-weeks.


How do we "upskill" to succeed in this new normal?

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

Working on ourselves via the body (exercise & nutrition) has become table stakes in enabling high performance—yet we often don’t prioritize training our mental habits/automatics.  

Next Jump Leadership Development & Decision-Making Training (LDDMT) training, done as team, will help break through traditional hierarchy, increasing empowerment, truth, trust and transparency– the fundamentals to be more comfortable and effective navigating uncertainty and ambiguity.

Our Programs are Based on
Three Key Principles:

Based on what has worked ‘in practice’ from working with hundreds of organizations over the past 20 years.

2% Rule


One hour a week represents 2% of a standard 40-hour work week.  Regardless of your day job, we can dedicate 1-hour a week to ourselves.

Vs. Too Much, Too Fast

13 Weeks

90 DAYS 

Consistency is key for lasting change.  90-days is deliberately chosen as it takes this long to form a new habit. 

Vs. Intensity, Willpower based change is temporary, reverts back to old ways

Small Group + Coach


Peer accountability is incredibly powerful and, counterintuitively, we need others to help train our self-awareness.  

Vs. Self-Driven Discipline, Authority-Driven Discipline Doesn’t Work

At Next Jump, while we are neither researchers nor academics, our 30 years of history and experience aiding over 10,000 organizations via our social mission has enabled us to break down the foundational elements of decision-making into practical curriculum.

Sessions are led by our network of Leadership Coaches. All are program graduates who remain active and continue to train at higher levels. The network includes coaches from diverse industries including founders, C-suite executives, educators, military service members (active and retired), engineers, fitness trainers, and more.  You can learn more about our Coaching Program here.

Graduates receive Next Jump Leadership and Decision-Making module certification, and coaches may recommend them for coaching roles. Participants that miss a significant number of sessions or do not complete exercises may not receive certification, at the coach’s discretion.

Groups should consist of 10 peers or near-peers (similar or adjacent in level). Ideally, participants should train with their day-to-day teams.  A team lead should join a separate group of similar-level managers to maintain a safe space for candid discussions.

Yes, training is hosted virtually, typically via Zoom or another video conferencing software.  Training can be offered in English and Chinese. We request that all participants attend with their cameras on to allow for non-verbal cues and establish a more human connection.

Each module lasts one hour per week over 13 consecutive weeks, with no formal homework.  Sessions are strictly limited to one hour to respect everyone’s time and the program occupies 2% of a standard workweek as research suggests that consistency increases adoption whereas intense change can face resistance and rejection.

A consistent weekly time slot for each group will be arranged directly with the coach, based on availability.

Consistent attendance is encouraged as peer participation is key for habit formation and program success.  If absences are unavoidable, attendees should communicate with their coach. Coaches may reschedule if conflicts impact most team members, such as holidays or special events.
