DESCRIPTION: When we come to a fork in the road, what do we do? Toss a coin? Consult a guru? Trust our gut? Whether expanding a business, hiring a first employee, or thinking about retiring, we’d like to believe we’re thoughtful with our decision-making. Come to the meeting ready to share what you learned the last time you made a big decision. We’ll compare notes and work on an exercise or two to stimulate our decision-making juices.
