Making decisions is not an easy task.
In fact, making decisions can be a complex and taxing thinking process. So much so that often adults are stuck in an analysis paralysis situation as they fear making the wrong decision.
As we constantly need to make decisions throughout our lives, struggling with performing this thinking task has a huge negative impact on our lives. It means we cannot move forward with our lives, preventing us from achieving success in life.
But, this doesn’t have to be the case.
Do you know that making decisions is a skill that can be developed like any other skill?
And you can easily teach your students this essential skill!
They can learn it, just like they learnt to ride a bike. It’s as simple as that.
By combining the power of their logical and creative brain with a well-defined process, your students can make great decisions more quickly and with confidence.
Learning how to make decisions is all about gathering the correct information, seeing the different paths available to you, knowing what criteria to choose to assess the different paths you can take and weighing the facts against those criteria.
In Episode 11 of The Thinking Effect podcast, we talk about the decision-making process and share with you:
✅ how you can help your students understand how to come up with criteria
✅ how you can support your students in learning how to assess and evaluate different ideas against these criteria
✅ how you can teach your students to make informed decisions
Tune in now to learn how you can positively impact your students by helping them master a crucial skill for life.
