I Decide is a self-paced course that builds participant
confidence and competence in decision-making over
21 units.
The course has been prepared for study in conjunction
with my book Becoming: the ordinary person’s road
map to life’s big decisions.
The step up to confident decision-making is made by
guided self-reflection so that individuals are empowered
take charge of their own life and circumstances.
Context
Firstly, the participant is asked to consider the context
of their life, factors which have coloured decisions and
habits to date, and the changes that have occurred impelling
fresh approaches. Understanding the context
and changes is critical to making quality decisions.
Styles of choice
Secondly, exploration of styles of decision-making developed
by experts to use in their respective sectors is
examined for how their ideas may help the participant’s
decision-making style.
Critical elements
Thirdly, elements are explored that underpin sound
choice on which to build an empowered life – elements
such as honesty, courage, pride and expectation.
The Maturity Model
My Maturity Model for decision-making encapsulates
all components. Understanding the Maturity Model
and how to apply the model to individual circumstances,
situations, relationships and policies at critical
life stages nudges the participant forward to personal
empowerment.
Applying the Maturity Model to life challenges
Every life stage – from childhood, adolescence, young
adulthood, family establishment, midlife and ageing –
presents tasks, responsibilities and changes to which
we need to adapt. Each stage is explored in some
depth as the participant is encouraged to use the Maturity
Model to advance in competence and confidence
in the present moment, as a platform for building
harmony, productivity and unity in all future challenges.
Workplace decisions
As much of our life is spent at work, decisions made,
or not made, in the workplace influence our health,
wellbeing and happiness on the job, overflowing to
other facets of our life. Applying the Maturity Model
to challenges arising, empowers workers and employers
to higher levels of harmony and productivity.
