Decision by Design is a 12 week training program for top performers who want to confidently take risks, stand out from their peers, and position themselves for the best possible future.
Your success at work and at home is directly tied to your ability to make great decisions.
Think about it. Every day we are faced with decisions about what to work on, how to spend our time, how to invest in our health and relationships.
If we make the wrong choices, the best case scenario is we spin our wheels for years without getting anywhere. What usually happens is far worse — not only do we waste time, but we see a deterioration of health, dissatisfaction at work, lost opportunities, and strained relationships with the people who matter most.
Writer and philosopher Albert Camus said, “Our life is the sum of our choices.” If that’s true, then how we make decisions should be something that deserves our highest attention and most focused energies. Decision by Design teaches you the skills you need to make the best decision. Every time.
Having the skills to consistently make sure we’re thinking through problems from every angle, avoiding problems before they happen, and spotting options where other people see none — can change the trajectory of both our personal and professional lives.
Good decisions make the future easier. Bad ones make the future harder.
Whether you’re curious about the real world habits and routines of the best decision makers or simply want to rapidly scale your career or business — Decision by Design will help you:
Clarify the problem
Avoid analysis paralysis
Identify the most important thing
Effectively use a team
Stop second guessing yourself
Stop feeling overwhelmed or exhausted by too many decisions
Build trust with your colleagues, employees, and bosses
Seize opportunities that others miss

Free up your time
Making better decisions means knowing exactly what to do. Every time.
Without a roadmap, learning the practicable skills to make the best decisions can be overwhelming, costly, and full of false starts. Decision by Design gives you that roadmap.
Inside the course, there are no shortcuts, silver bullets, or guaranteed results. You get out of it what you put into it.
