Decision Leadership:
The Power to Influence Those Who Outrank You

March 14, 2018

Presented by a collaboration of the SDG Decision Education Center and our academic partner, Wharton Executive Education


Strategic decisions, such as new business directions or major project investments, are often made in contests that pit team leaders against their peers and superiors; the strongest advocate wins. However, these advocated wins are not high-quality decisions. Senior executives deserve better. They need decision leaders who can build alignment for decisions that create maximum value.

In this webinar, you will learn how to recognize where decision leadership is needed, engage effectively with senior executives who outrank you, and lead them to quality in their most important decisions.

This webinar is presented by Wharton Executive Education and Strategic Decisions Group, who have collaborated to offer the Strategic Decision and Risk Management certificate program for executives and business leaders. This certificate offers mid-career professionals the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills with a focus on making decisions under uncertainty.
