Our CEO Paul Gordon speaks with Kylee Stone from the Uncharted Leader podcast, in a 5-part series taking listeners through hard decisions made easy, in a step-by-step guide to strategic decision-making.
Episode two focuses on the Decision Thinking principle: Process before content.
Decision making is something we do every day, but it’s not as straightforward as one would think. Individuals and organisations often make complex decisions that appear successful when the initial decision is made but getting them to stick and getting alignment throughout the implementation is one of the hardest parts of successful leadership.
Paul outlines how to start by applying process before considering the content of your decision. His assertion is that you want to think about how you’re going to make a decision before you get stuck in the middle of a decision. The content of your decision includes the things that you’re trying to decide between (your options) and what you care about (your criteria). The process is ‘how’ you will go about determining whether one thing is more preferred than another.
The discussion is full of real examples of how to apply good process to a personal or strategic decision and the overwhelming benefits this has in making a decision stick. Be prepared for some real life examples and plenty of shared experience from both Kylee and Paul.
