Your decision making process and style is greatly influenced by your main personality type, the strain you are experiencing and your dominant center of brain intelligence (Feeling, Action, Thinking).  Decisions happen in context which means being adaptive to the situation with your decision making approach is critical – and difficult.  The more you able to adapt your style to the context, the better your decisions will be.

    • A personalized map of your strengths, challenges, biases and habits you bring to decision making
    • Understanding the impact you have on others with your decision making style and the way others decisions affect you
