The D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox

Make every strategic decision the best decision

Over 50 practical tweaks to check and resolve your strategic decisions (at your own pace).

Do you want to perfect the strategic decisions in your organization, but without the time-consuming, theoretical, and expensive consultant/trainers?

Here is a practical, laser-focused toolbox to use on the job, to perfect your current decisions.

Try the toolbox one day for free, or do the free basic training first.

Do any of these sound familiar to you:

  • Everyone is looking at you for answers, but you can't seem to find that convincing piece of evidence to guide your decision. So you hold the decision off, hoping that tomorrow's news will bring clarity. But of course, it doesn't. So tomorrow, you're just as unsure as today -only now the decision is more urgent 😳
  • You're angry with yourself because you're hesitant. You don't want to make the wrong decision, but you also don't want to be seen as inadequate instead of the decisive leader you are 😬
  • You're discussing the same strategic issue again as if you're caught in Ground Hog Day. If only you had a way to get past this discussion 🙄
  • You're watching the numbers going the wrong way because all the usual solutions don't seem to work anymore, and now you're out of options. Drastic action is what you need, but which one? 🧐

I remember the long, hard days and short, troubled nights and the never-ending replay of pros and cons in my head like it happened yesterday.

The year had just turned 2013, and despite putting all my energy and brainpower into this failing company, I could not find a way out. Instead, I had to close the doors when we still had the money left to pay our debts. The sad ending came after four years of trying to find our purpose and reinvent ourselves.

This was the only company I couldn't save in the 24+ years of my entrepreneurship. 

This was also the most significant lesson I've learned. Solving the strategic issue of where to take an organization next became my life's purpose.

Fast forward six years, and I've earned my Ph.D. on this very question.

Fast forward another couple of years, and here we are: a toolbox, filled to the brim with practical tweaks to check and resolve strategic decisions.

You're wondering about the how-to of strategic decision-making, and I have the tools to fix it...

Introducing the D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox for Strategic Decisions

A toolbox filled to the brim with science-based and real-world tested tweaks, explicitly tailored to executives.  If you want to be confident, decisive, and enjoy strategic decision-making without all the second-guessing, the toolbox is for you:

  • Lose the uncertainty of what the future may bring so that you can enjoy the executive position you worked so hard for.
  • Never again being confused or worried about a strategic decision means that you can focus on what matters: to let your organization grow and do good.
  • Waking up every single morning with a clear mind so that you can be a better parent AND a better leader.
  • Having a track record of accurate decisions means that you are seen as an accomplished executive.
  • Poses confidence and decisiveness to be the mentor and role model for other people climbing the ladder. 

 

This isn't like any program you've seen or done before...

I'm sure you're sitting there thinking that you've heard all this before. And you're wondering how this toolbox could be any different than every decision-making course or program out there.

Well, let me share a few things with you.

The D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox is like no other program out there. Not only have I designed this specifically for business owners and strategy directors, but I based it on my 24+ years of boardroom experience and my Ph.D. in managerial foresight.

Most other programs out there will leave you:

  • Confused and overwhelmed: They give you either too little or too much to change, and both lead to you remaining in the exact same situation that you're in right now.
  • Applying the same old, same old. Trust me; strategic decision-making does not mean endless broad sweeps of the environment, frustratingly slow discussions low on creativity and high in conformity, and the seemingly unavoidable new business models. That'd only leave you making the same mistakes and craving quick, new fixes.
  • Going back to your old process soon after following their program because it simply wasn't bringing you immediate relief and made in a way that fit your busy days.

 

The D.E.C.I.D.E. Toolbox is about giving you laser-focused tweaks to increase decision accuracy, speed, and yield for each step of the decision-making process

Get a detailed look at what you're going to get done:

Discover omissions

Error Check

2. Error Check

Error Check

5. Decide

  • Stop watering down decisions to reach consensus, but integrate the best unique insights to a shared, highly accurate decision.
  • Choose between alternatives by comparing the value they bring and the trade-off you'd make by not choosing the rest so you can explain your choice in clear language.
  • Increase decision yield with quick safety checks before you begin implementing so you won't have to come back on a decision anytime soon.
Critique Logic
