What do you get?

  • Improved decision quality: By understanding the common biases and traps that groups fall into, groups can avoid poor judgment and make higher quality decisions that are more logical and evidence-based
  • Increased productivity: With better processes and dynamics, groups can avoid wasting time and make decisions more quickly and efficiently. This can lead to higher team productivity.
  • Improved team dynamics: Educating groups on effective communication techniques, ways to handle disagreement constructively, and strategies to give everyone a voice can help improve relationships and cohesion within the team
  • Mitigated conflict: Understanding the root causes of conflict in groups and strategies to address issues proactively can help reduce tensions, power struggles, and interpersonal conflict within the team
  • Consistent process: Establishing a standardised decision-making process based on best practices can help create a consistent template for how important decisions are made within the organisation or team. This consistency yields benefits over the long run.
  • Shared understanding: Educating the entire group on key principles and concepts helps establish a common language and framework for how decisions should be made. This shares understanding leads to benefits like streamlined discussions and the ability to resolve disagreements objectively. 
  • Accountability for decisions: With a clear process that everyone understands, groups and individuals can be held accountable for following or deviating from that process. Decisions are more transparent and evidence-based.
  • Improved satisfaction: Overall, the benefits of higher quality decisions, less conflict, increased productivity and an equitable process can lead to higher satisfaction and morale within the group. Members feel their time and input are being valued.
