Description

Our decisions shape our lives. Whether at home or at work, with others or alone, our capacity to read what’s going on inside and around us, and to choose what to do next can make or break a campaign, a business, a relationship or even a family holiday.

With so much going on above and below the surface, how can we decide what to say and how to act in order to steer things in the right direction? Through 20 accessible lessons, Better Decisions will take you from theory and frameworks which deepen your understanding, to real-life applications that are specific to you. The practical exercises will help you to understand your own decision-making habits, and give you new tools and techniques to enable you to judge the best way forward and take the next step.

The author

Chris Grant draws on his experience of working with thousands of leaders in business, sport and elsewhere, but the lessons in this book apply as much to personal decisions as to professional ones. Chris chaired the Programme that introduced the UK’s Chip & PIN payment technology. He’s helped global industries to think about their social impact, and a national sports squad prepare for a victorious European Championship campaign. He’s coached Team GB coaches, TV Executives and (literally) rocket scientists. But to Chris, the titles are less important than the people. He’s fascinated by the common factors and approaches, which bring them success, or get in the way. Chris’s teachers have included a Buddhist nun; a psychoanalyst who was also a soldier, and the star couple of existential philosophy. All of these make appearances in Better Decisions, and the result is a book which has considerable breadth and depth to back up its accessible and practical techniques.
