How to Make Decisions

Decisions are an integral part of life. There's no getting around them. We make many decisions each day—some are small and seemingly inconsequential. Others are big decisions that change our lives. For many people, even those seemingly inconsequential decisions wreak havoc on our psyches. We worry. Is it the right decision or will we feel foolish for making the wrong decision? How are others going to regard our choice? What if we haven't thought of everything and there are horrible consequences? Some of us have sleepless nights, nail-biting, jaw-clenching anxiety.

It doesn't have to be like this. You can learn how to make stress-free decisions and actually trust the decisions that you make. In this experiential workshop, you'll be introduced to aspects of a well-proven process that enables you to get clear about the competing voices in your head, discern your authentic desire vs. your fears, and separate fact-finding from the decision itself.

When you understand the phases of the decision process, it is easier to evaluate the risks and the potential rewards of your options. Most important in this model is learning how to let go of perfectionism and develop trust in your ability to cope with what emerges. Lastly, you'll find that celebrating your decision is more helpful than the alternatives.

Bring your small and big decisions with you for use in our laboratory workshop.
