Are you on a mission to seek out better more collaborative decision making, to boldly go where no one has gone before? We face dozens of decisions every day from the ordinary to those more akin to intergalactic warfare. Decision making is a skill with many facets: How do you decide how you will decide? How do you move the process forward? How do you give opinions in a way that gets heard and valued? What do you do if the “wrong” decision is made? How can you harness the most value from your crew?

Most decision-making courses focus only on the skill of making a decision. This course goes further by exploring the neuroscience of decision making, the skill of leading a collaborative decision-making process, and how to be an invaluable decision making partner and help others make swifter, more objective, higher quality decisions.

The Starship Enterprise has two wise decision makers on board: Captain Kirk and Science Officer Spock. Develop the best, most collaborative skills from both of them.
