  All of us are continually confronted with the need to make choices, both as an individual and as a member of groups; and we are concerned that we choose appropriately. Yet experience tells us that despite our many successes as problem solvers and decision makers and our motivation to choose wisely, we display poor judgment in many instances.

  Especially in the context of groups, we are subject to a variety of subtle pressures and influences that impair our ability to think and act rationally. This training workshop is designed to alert us to some of these factors and will help us explore the ways in which they can interfere with reasoned choice, and introduce us to the principles of disciplined inquiry that can facilitate our efforts to contribute to informed decisions in group settings. This training workshop is full with case studies that will help the participant sharpen their skills and become excellent problem solver and decision makers.
