Track 2: Team/Group Space Paper Presentation: Coaching Leaders to Construct Space for Decision Making
Abstract: This paper provides practical tools, assessments, and strategies to be used when coaching leaders to improve their decision-making process. A useful model is presented that breaks down the decision-making process into five dimensions. Each dimension becomes a focus for leader assessment and an opportunity for improvement. Behavior descriptions and coaching questions are provided to guide the executive coach. Coaches can help leaders kinesthetically experience gaps in their own decision-making process and develop strategies for improvement.
