EFFECTIVE TEAM LEADERSHIP: Influencing Decision-Making within Leadership Teams
Influencing Decision-Making within Leadership Teams

Understanding how you make decisions is a critical first step to recognizing why sometimes there is a barrier between you and a colleague. You may have the same goal, but your approach may be so different that you experience resistance along the way. To be an effective leader, knowing how others make decisions is important to your overall success. The Attribute-Index tells us that people use three different sources to make decisions: logical (head), empathetic (heart), and practical (hand). Understanding your decision-making style will help you understand the decision-making style of others, enabling you to break barriers, "unlock" hidden potential, and lead more effectively. Full Presentation Description: EFFECTIVE TEAM LEADERSHIP: Influencing Decision-Making within Leadership Teams I work with managers who want to build teams, lead more effectively, and achieve superior results. Using a 3-part individual assessment, team members get a clearer idea of their individual style and learn to how to communicate and connect better with their colleagues: “These assessments (and review) have been eye opening for our leadership team. By reviewing the challenges and gifts of each team member, we have been able to re-design job descriptions to meet the strengths of the team, thus increasing sales by 50%.” -- Kelly P., President, Sales and Marketing Firm This session is about the “WHAT” of interpersonal communication, part of the how-why-what trilogy of the ADVanced Insights™ assessment, focused on Decision-Making: • “How” you make decisions (DISC-Index™) • “Why” you make decisions/what motivates you (Values-Index™) • “What” are your natural decision-making strengths (Attribute Index™) Increasing self-awareness is one of the most important habits of successful people. It is critical to personal development and helps with building confidence and self-esteem, enabling you to develop better relationships, become more productive, and create a more enjoyable work environment. Decision Making Styles Our decision-making style is a function of our experiences, perceptions, and thinking habits, combined with your level of focus in the three dimensions of thought, that is, whether we lead with our head, heart, or hand. The decisions we make stem from our beliefs, values, and attitudes. Imagine a scenario where there are three purists, an individual who is logical and leads with the head, another who is practical and leads with the hand, and a third who is empathetic and leads with the heart. A manager sets a piece of equipment and a set of instructions in front of the three employees. The logical person wants to read the instructions to ensure that they don’t miss a step, the practical person deems this equipment is not unlike others, and wants to get it set up first. The two argue. Finally, the empathetic person asks, why can’t you two just get along? Fortunately, none of us makes decisions purely from one dimension of thought or have a purist decision-making style. We each possess some level of intuition in each of the three areas, as well as our unique set of biases that arise from our individual experiences. Business decision-making • How often do we experience a similar scenario because our styles are different? • What impact does it have on collaborative decision-making? For example, one leadership team found that they were continually coming up with good ideas, but found that they had a problem implementing any of these proposals. After learning their value structures, they realized that they were all strong logical thinkers, but none of their team was a strong practical person who got things done. The Attribute-Index results assisted this leadership team in discovering each of their different decision-making styles, enabling team members to take into consideration each others preferences, and more importantly, leverage and apply everyone’s unique strengths as appropriate. Your Program In this program, participants realize differing internal and external decision-making styles and abilities. This program includes the opportunity for each participant to take the Attribute-Index individual assessment, where they will immediately receive a 20+ page report detailing their unique combination of head, heart, and hand in their approach to both internal and external decision-making. • Discover decision-making differences in high and low velocity environments • Identify areas of strength (maximizers) and areas of weakness (minimizers) • Discover better ways to align work, better leveraging your team’s strengths
