Decision Skills Essentials

We teach teens how to decide, not what to decide, empowering teens to make better decisions that lead to better lives.

We use our decision chain model as a platform to teach our courses. As we work with corporations, schools, and other organizations, we partner in creating the experience that's best for you.

One-Day Course

  • Decisions vs. Outcomes

  • The Six Elements of a Good Decision

  • Decision Fitness

  • Cognitive Biases

  • Application of these Skills to Life

We facilitate student growth in critical thinking, social/emotional intelligence, and creativity, as teens apply decision skills within a tested decision framework. Students then apply these acquired skills to real-life decisions.

Learning happens in a fun atmosphere through activities, stories, and team interactions. In addition, we give students techniques to help them understand how their emotional or physical state affects their decision-making and how to help themselves move into a better state for making good decisions.

Minimum 15 students, ages 13-19. Please contact us for scheduling and pricing.

Decision Parenting Module

We can add a second instructor to spends time teaching parents and caregivers the decision process and language so they can bring the decision conversation home. In this 60 to 90 minute course, parents and caregivers learn about the decision chain, decision fitness, biases in thinking, and how to support their teen in their own decision development. 

Life can be easier when parents and their children share a language and model for making choices.
