In today’s fast-paced world, finding solutions to complex problems can often seem like a daunting task. We’ve all encountered moments when we’ve had to make important decisions, and the pressure is on to get it right. It’s in these moments that we tend to rely on our own expertise or seek advice from trusted experts. But what if there’s a more effective way to arrive at the best possible solution?

…but if you keen to know a bit more then let’s unpack it a bit shall we?
Silly question honestly, like who doesn’t want to be a millionaire right? Well, probably billionaires… anyways this talk begins with a thought-provoking concept:
The sum of the parts is greater than the whole.
Have you ever heard of this idea before? It essentially suggests that individual perspectives and knowledge can often surpass the collective wisdom of a group. Look at the TV show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” for just a sec.
Imagine you’re in the hot seat, one question away from winning a million dollars. What would you do in this high-stakes situation – whom do you trust for the final answer? Your options are to call a friend who you think may know the answer to ask the audience, a group of 100 random people. Tough choice right? Which one is the right one though… guess you’ll have to watch the coaching vid 😉
This is the crux of this talk, answering the question should we be heavily relying on the our own expertise or perhaps look to the potential wisdom of the crowd? Don’t wait a second longer, download the free coaching vid and slide deck, book 15 minutes with your team, get practicing, and deliver!
