Video #6 of the Series – Effective Decision-Making in an Over-Thinking World
In this video series, Shelley works with you to understand the under-the-surface influences that impact your decision-making. You’ll learn how to stop over-thinking decisions; slow knee-jerk decisions and enable aha-moments. Each video gives you an action step. The action step has you apply what you learned in practical situations for your organization.
This video begins our discussion of over-thinking decisions. Over-thinking is not a productive decision-making approach. It wastes time, results in stress and missed opportunities. In this video you’ll learn a technique that Shelley calls “notice and name:” Notice the nagging feeling and give it a name. We may have to relearn how to notice feelings because we’ve been taught to shove them away. The act of naming the feeling moves it from the deep part of the brain – that doesn’t access language – to the thinking part of the brain that includes language. Naming the feeling gives you something to work with.
