About this webinar

Who do you go to when you need to gather information for a big decision? You go to your most trusted buddies. Your go-to people and respected leaders always have wise input.

These are your “usual suspects.” We have a natural inclination to seek information from sources who are comfortable and familiar. But what about the others – that argumentative person, the contrarian who always sees things differently from you and isn’t afraid to point it out, the inquisitor who asks question after pointed question? Chances are good that you avoid them, and it’s time to change that.

Through this pre-recorded webinar, you’ll take an honest look at those other voices that are essential if you want to make a sound decision for a tough situation. You need – really need – all those voices, so let’s get them in the mix.

Learning Objectives:

·      Learn the importance of capturing a broad range of information sources for a key decision.

·      Identify your closest colleagues for trusted input.

·      Find people with fringe opinions who may be on the cutting edge of a new way of thinking.

·      Engage those people outside of the typical circle and hear their thoughts for a more informed decision.

This course is closed for enrollment.
