Making Family Decisions That Make Sense

Thursday, January 21, 2021 9:00 pm
Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)

Making good decisions is a life-long challenge, and making sound family decisions is considerably more complex. After all, everyone seems to have an opinion about what’s best! If you’ve been frustrated with the process of weighing everyone’s concerns and preferences, and you’d like to avoid becoming the dictator at your house, this webinar is for you.

You will learn how to:
- Decide which decisions to make alone, and which ones to share responsibility with others
- Get people to weigh-in, so they will eventually buy-in.
- Utilize decision-making criteria that increases the likelihood of success
- Teach your children to be good decision makers when you’re not around

David will connect the key life skills of the lesson with winning on the field, and in life. The Power Point materials are loaded with practical information worth saving for future reference.
