Make Every Decision Your Best Decision

Executives rate decision-making ability as the most important business skill, but few people have the training they need to make good decisions consistently.

Becoming a good decision-maker is like training to be a top athlete: Just as the best coaches use training methods to help athletes develop proper techniques and avoid mistakes, Dr. J. Edward Russo and Dr. Paul J. H. Schoemaker have developed a program that can help you avoid "decision traps" -- the ten common decision-making errors that most people make over and over again.

Dr. Russo and Dr. Schoemaker have improved the decision-making skills of thousands of Fortune 500 executives with this program. Now you can use their decision-making techniques to make sure that your last bad decision was your last bad decision.
