Making your best decision

You make several decisions every day, some without much conscious thought. But, every once in a while you’re challenged to make a difficult decision… either in your work, or in life in general. So, how confident are you that you’re making the best decision you can in those circumstances?

I’ve been working in and alongside a range of health and social care services since the mid-1980’s, and I’ve been involved in a wide range of big decisions. The following link offers a training session on what I take into account when making those decisions myself, or supporting others to make their big decisions.

Our narrow focus on risk assessment and risk management may be deflecting us away from what is THE core skill… confident and reasoned risk decision-making. I’ve published the books and manuals on the subject over many years, but now I’m creating that information in a more easily accessible digital format. What have you got to lose… apart from a short amount of your valuable time?

This takes my original concept of positive risk-taking and puts it into practical use.

Strengths as the ultimate Resources

What do you think when the topic of strengths-based practice is raised? Is it something that you will devote some quality time to when other priorities have been sorted out? I hope not!

When we are working with those challenges, trying to manage a few of life’s difficulties, or finding ways to manage or take risks… a Strengths Approach is the critical way forward.

If you’re interested to learn more check out the following link for a Strengths Checklist, which could also be your first step towards connecting with my wider range of resources specifically focused on ‘strengths’, but also seeing strengths-based practice as the ultimate way of underpinning our confidence in my concept of ‘positive risk-taking’.

6 Influences on Making Better Risk Decisions

20 years of consultancy, including working with a small caseload of brain injury case management clients, is a milestone to note. So, I’m currently enrolled on Amy Porterfield’s Digital Course Academy, with the intention of developing a new digital course targeted specifically for busy practitioners in healthcare and brain injury fields of work.

The focus will be on supporting people to make those challenging risk decisions with greater confidence. Access the following link for a FREE report

I can’t banish the endless need for bureaucratic tick-box approaches to risk assessment. However, I can help people by providing non-bureaucratic guidance that helps in the moment of decision-making. The report outlines some of the influences that we should all be aware of. The course (in development) will provide much more detailed guidance, emerging out of my decades of experience, including the initiaiting of the concept of Positive Risk-Taking back in 1994.

Minding your language

The language of strengths individualises each of us; whereas, the language used to describe problems tends more to aggregate us into less well-defined groups. In the following brief video, I will contrast the types of language we use for describing ourselves either from a problems perspective or from a strengths approach.

I have been developing and delivering a Strengths Approach since it was first formally introduced to me by Professor Charlie Rapp in 1991. It has been without doubt the most exciting and influential set of ideas I have experienced throughout a long and varied career; and expanded further through my reading around the Gallup organisation strengths literature.

I now offer FREE access to ideas that will help you identify and work with your own strengths. Whether it is our own personal development, or that of others around us, it shouldn’t be a secret as to how we can become more of who we really are.

Best wishes,

Why work with strengths?

Marilyn vos Savant said “Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses.” Strengths and weaknesses are not mutually exclusive, but in this video I offer 5 reasons why we should focus more on our strengths.
