Lead Your Team to Make Better Decisions, Faster

by | Jul 2, 2021 | Podcast, Winning Well |

When decision-making or problem-solving meetings bog down and become a waste of time, there are usually two problems causing the stagnation. In this episode, you’ll get the tools to overcome both of these problems before they derail your team. Take these two quick actions before you discuss any problem and your team will make better decisions – faster.

Help Your Team Make Better Decisions

0:00 – Do your meetings go in circles and you’re never able to make a decision?

0:22 – Make your meetings productive, efficient, and something people want to attend.

0:50 – If you’ve ever heard someone say, “I don’t know why you ask my opinion, you’re just going to do what you want anyway,” the tools we cover today will eliminate that morale-sucking complaint.

1:30 – The first mistake is a lack of clarity in the problem or decision being discussed.

2:10 – To make better decisions and have better meetings, focus your discussion on one of two topics: where are we going and how are we going to get there.

3:10 – So define the goal, then talk about the means to get there.

3:36 – An example of how to keep your team focused on the goal, then the means, and not allow discussion to bog down with both simultaneously.

4:32 – Then, the second mistake is a lack of clarity about who owns the decision.

5:53 – There are only four ways for a group of people to make a decision (and you normally only use three of them in business).

7:12 – The critical step to engage your team and help them make better decisions is to clarify before discussion begins: who owns this decision. Now they know how to participate, who to influence, and what decisions they need to make.

8:28 – How to combine these techniques.
