“The Triple D Method to Decision-Making”
Are you trying to be all things to all people? This method takes you out of the passenger seat of "yes to others" and "no to you" and into the driver seat of "Hell Yes!" using a 3-step process.

Source: People pleasing tendencies. Not wanting to disappoint people by saying no. Desire to be “The Nice Girl or Guy.” Seeking of Likeability.

Symptoms: Burnout. Overloaded schedule. Triple bookings.  Feeling of being taken advantage of. Plays roles that don’t suit skillset. Feeling of being helpful, but helpless. May suffer from reoccurring colds or illness.

Remedy: The Triple D Method to Time Management. All decisions will be based on the following three criteria:

  1. Doability: Can it be done with the current resources (time, skill, and manpower) as requested? If no, see “Delegatability.” If yes, see “Desirability.”
  2. Desirability: Does this feel like a treat or punishment? If it’s a treat, get it done! If it’s a punishment, see “Delegability” or use the power of “No.”
  3. Delegatability: Can this task realistically be performed by someone other than you?  If yes, delegate away. If no, and it failed the “Desirability” and “Doability,” that’s a “Triple D Fail.”

Attend this session to:

  • Learn the Triple D Method
  • Identify Signs and Areas of Burnout and Overload
  • Create a Strategy for Decision Making
  • Learn Strategies of Saying "No" without Saying the Word.
