Interpreting information skills and improved decision making training

Professional development training in interpreting skills is an unusual program. There is so much information currently available that people need to grow antennas and filters that can sort the dross from the gems. Organisations lose money when acting on incorrect information and people need to develop information filtering skills.

Have your people been professionally trained to interpret information correctly

Unfortunately people often conceal or misrepresent information that may be challenging. Many employees act on the information they receive without question like Moses. They have not been thought to think through the information and this can lead to poor decision making behaviours. Create a culture that eliminates costly mistakes through poor decision making and problem solving skills.

How to make better decisions workshops

If it quacks and waddles it's a duck is traditional thinking. Your people need to challenge traditional thinking styles and consider that maybe it's a chicken disguised as a duck because it's tired of chickens been branded as poor crossers of the road. Help your people question everything and your organisation will benefit from better decision making training and your people will become experts at unearthing critical information.
