    Empowering Decision-Makers

    April 27, 2012 @ 12:30 PM - 5:00 PM

    Presentation (pdf)

    An organization’s performance on any single day is a direct result of the decisions made and actions taken that day by every single employee.  In the current business environment—characterized by increasing Change, Uncertainty, Complexity and Anxiety (CUCA)—those decisions and actions must be based on effective knowledge.

    Knowledge, the capacity to take effective action, emerges from EVERY aspect of a decision-makers life.  Organizations can no longer afford to ignore the potential of the power of knowledge building in each mind/brain.  You—the decision-maker—have an amazing storehouse of knowledge within, knowledge that you have been accumulating over a lifetime.  How do you access your personal knowledge resources?  How do you ensure you have the best possible knowledge resources?

    This seminar will progress through the individual change model, first building awareness, understanding and belief in your personal knowledge resources; then providing simple but powerful tools you can use to expand your personal knowledge resources for future decision-making.  Supporting research from complexity theory and neuroscience will be provided, including Mountain Quest Institute White Papers to support a deeper understanding of concepts and successful application of tools.
