What differentiates an average CEO from an outstanding CEO – it is the quality of decisions. We are hard pressed for time to take the right decisions on our urgent and important matters – which customer segment/geography/technology to focus on, which product lines to shut down, how to maximize revenue, cut costs, simplify processes, eliminate waste, enhance customer satisfaction, who to hire, which systems to invest in, how to attract and select best vendors/employees, how to retain employees/vendors.

Be it intuitive or fact based decision making – we get the results only when correct decisions are taken at the right time. At CEO Coaching Conclave we are coaching, mentoring current and future CEOs to learn the art of decision making.  Five days residential program helps in transforming the thought process and train the mind to improve quality of decision through series of exercises and participative sessions for creating a $100m enterprise.

Program delivers five days of rigorous training and practice with at least 30 complex situations to go through multiple options and develops ability to choose the best. Maximum  group size is 6 to allow continuous interaction and learning through each other.

Day starts early morning with Meditation & Yoga to learn deep thinking to grasp as many decision options and see the pros & cons of each option clearly. We shall coach you to develop uncluttered thinking to deliver focused results.

These are not classroom training sessions – bring in your situations for which you are not able to find solutions, complex issues, critical decisions for which you would like to know the outcome. As proven business leaders, we shall help you with all these during the day to ensure that you are ready to deal with them on your own at the end of the program.

Day ends with post dinner fire side chat on day long deliberations and plan for next day.
